I fell in love with mangoes in college, thanks to my roommate who lived with me for all four years. Her parents would drive down for the day to visit us, and they would literally stock our fridge with all sorts of fruits, grilled veggies, chicken, turkey and veggie burgers...I could go on and on. I wish they could be here to stock my fridge now. Anyway, they almost always brought us mangoes. When they weren't in season,they brought us frozen mango slices from Trader Joes (OMG I MISS THAT SHOP SO MUCH!!!!). Thanks to them, my fridge in Australia almost always contains a mango in the summer.
I bought at least one mango per week last summer, and then I almost cried when they stopped stocking them for winter. Really, it was a big deal. I'm sure you can imagine my excitement when I found them a few weeks ago!
I've been incorporating them into my lunches. I made a salad today with lettuce, chickpeas and one fresh mango.
Goodnight, friends. Peace, love and MANGOES!
