There is a long list of things I love about calling south florida my home. A long, long list. Summer is not one of them. This summer has been more rain filled than usual. I know, I know, I’ve mentioned it. So let me get to the good part— with the summer comes a lot of good stuff too… more free time for Alex, more rainy movie days, and hands down the favorite thing for everyone here: mangoes. The mangoes are plenty. And it seems like the more time that goes by living here in south florida, the more people I meet who are practically begging us to take mangoes from them. Well, we never, ever turn down a mango— and well, sometimes Alex’s mango loving stomach on his tree climbing self is bigger than his sensibility. So our mango stock is bigger than we could ever need. They’re everywhere. You can find them in the road, in the parks, on neighborhood walks. Everywhere– but mostly in our stomachs of course.
I hope you guys like mangoes, cause after this summer there will probably be quite a few mango recipes in the book 😉
