 *Should have 7 to 8 cups of pulp.
 Line a 9x5 inch loaf pan with parchment paper, leaving tags hanging over
 edge.  Peel 6 avocados and mash well with mustard, Worcestershire, lemon
 juice, salt and pepper.  Whip cream to soft peaks.  Fold whipped cream into
 avocado.  Pour half mixture in loaf pan and bang on table to level and drive
 out air bubbles.  Peel two remaining avocados and halve them.  Place cut
 side down up mold.  Tap mold again.  Top with rest of mousse.  Tap, smooth
 top, and put a piece of parchment right on surface of mousse.  Chill.
 For sauce, stew tomatoes, cream, lemon juice for about 5 minutes, stirring
 frequently.   Cool and add basil and s&p if needed.
 Bring wine and water to boil.  Add salt and shrimp.  Simmer gently 'til
 done, remove, drain and cool.
 Unmold mousse.  Spread sauce on long edges of mold letting it drip down the
 sides.  Garnish center of mold with shrimp, and green things like chives or
 cilantro.  Take your bows!
