Homemade Guacamole {Fresh Cilantro From My Garden}

With a beautiful pot of cilantro growing in my front yard I had guacamole on the brain!  Cilantro can be used in many dishes in the kitchen but in my kitchen it's mostly for guacamole and salsas.  YUMMY!!!!

{Plus, I just like saying SALSA, SALSA, SALSA, SALSA!}

Since my husband gave me a brand new camera for my birthday I had to try it out with taking some amazing pics of some beautiful ingredients.  {Remember I did warn you about this.}
