Hello Fruit Friends! How has life been?
Things have been amazingly fruity over here! I have been eating a tonne of really awesome stuff.
I had just been wishing for mangos to come back into my life, and then lo and behold, they did!
After I had been happy to see a few mangoes, one day this happened;
I had this feeling last Saturday that I HAD to go to the market. Usually I avoid going on weekend days, because it is so busy and everything generally gets picked over. This day, I decided to throw caution to the wind, and see what was there.
I meandered my way through the crowds to my most favourite place, and the guy behind the cash register, (who has never spoken to me, and I have been going to his stand for over a year) came up to me and said ” You want more mango?” I was aghast for a moment, blinking profusely, when I replied “Uh, yeah.” “How many mango you want?” I said, “How many have you got?” And he brought out a giant box full of these little beauties. “How much you do you want for it?!” (Yes, I was shouting because I was excited, let it go.” “Seven dollar.” YES. So I ended up getting 31 mangoes for 7 monies. My life is amazing.
I had mango mango and mango ice cream.
I added some vanilla to it, and it tasted like amazing.
There was also an amazing melon moment last week;
I chopped them up good and froze them for melon ice cream;
I also had many persimmons, which never seem to be going out of style. I am not upset about it.
I realized you can separate out the little insides, the skin and the goop.
Then you get persimmon pudding!!
And finally like any good 80/10/10er, I have been noshing on many bananas.
I have clearly been eating well.
How about you fruity friends?
