This summer I am completely hooked on anything mango.
Including but not limited to:
cold and peeled eaten standing, leaning over the sink
in a Mango Supreme raspa (snow cone) with shredded fresh coconut and almonds and chunks of fresh mango
sliced in my Kellogg’s All Bran cereal with 2% milk and 1 Splenda
sliced on top of 1 cup of light yogurt
in a rustic chopped fruit salad of fresh pineapple and banana
in salsa with tostados
in my Black Bean Salad, thanks to my friend JB’s recommendation -she always knows what I’ll like
on a stick (yes, I said a stick) at Market Days in Harlingen, where I was so hot and distracted and busy shopping,
And so this morning, at the Alamo flea market,
I bought a case for $4.
It didn’t matter that I stepped in mud in the parking lot.
I had on my Okabashi flip flops.
(These are AMAZING… trust me. They sell them al Walgreens. Can you believe it? They are also online.)
When I left the flea market, I stopped at the nearby WalMart gas pump and this nice young man let me rinse my feet off.
Have I gone a bridge too far?
Am I the only person in the world who enjoys things like this???
I also bought grape tomatoes ( 4 for $1)
and a pineapple.
Tomorrow I am selling again with my daughter at Market Days in Harlingen.
Who am I kidding?
(Daughter #3 at the last Harlingen Market Days)
I’ll be walking around looking for
Mango on a Stick.
