Mango Madness

June 6th, 2010

Well, I did it. I bought the case of mangoes. There were 18 in there. Add in the three I’d bought individually, and I had 21 mangoes to munch my way through — in short order, too, as they were all perfectly ripe when I bought them!

Fortunately, I’m up to the task. This weekend’s meals have included:

French Toast with Mango and Blueberry Topping

Mango Chicken Salad in a Cheesy Pie Shell

Mango Red Pepper Salsa with Chips

(Said salsa will also appear on Tuesday as a topping for pork chops)

Mango Rice Pudding

And, of course, we just ate a few of them straight up. It was a pretty fabulous weekend, culinarily speaking, though my snooty daughter wanted nothing to do with the succulent yellow bites of heavenly goodness that we were wolfing down. Her loss! But now all the mangoes are gone and I think I may go into withdrawal.
