Adrienne Yancey's contribution for Project 009 is an avocado spread, tomato and sprout sandwich. Etymological surprise of the day: according to wikipedia "the word 'avocado' comes from the Spanish word aguacate, which derives in turn from the Nahuatl (Aztec) word ahuacatl, meaning 'testicle', because of its shape." We learned that and couldn't not mention it.
