Do you like fresh pineapple? Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
I was cutting one up tonight, to go with our rice, and it struck me just how redolent and fresh a pineapple is. It's tangy, and brightly yellow, a burst of sunshine, and it's so juicy. An amazing fruit, energy and fibre and vitamins all packed into a solid kind of prickly skin. I'm impressed with the pineapple and how it must have contributed to the sustaining of many peoples around the warmer regions of the world. It's not my favourite fruit, I love strawberries and apricots, big black plums and watermelon. But I sure admire that pineapple.

And don't get me started on mangoes ;)

Yes, the pineapple has many admirable qualities, a very vigorous fruit!!!!

But go on... I really want to hear your wisdom on mangoes...

Well, to eat a fresh mango, you need to brace yourself, get ready. It takes a lot of energy to eat a mango. It has a thick skin, and a firm flesh. It's juicy, and rich, like eating sunshine itself, and deliciously smooth. But it really does take a lot of eating to conquer one. It's almost like a meat of a fruit! And it has a huge, wedge shaped stone you have to work around.

Christy and I usually share *g*

And to chop one up into the blender and make mango lassi - that's just heaven! OMG!

Hee, I know what Christy and I will be having with dinner tomorrow night now *g* since Steve is out... mmmm, mango lassi. If you were here, we could have had one before we had a run of coffees - I'll toast you tomorrow night.

We bought the lassi in the end instead of making it, but it was just as nice as always and I raised my cup to you *g*

Not a fruit person?! OMG have you heard about the 5+ a day scheme? It's huge here. And I detest a lot of fruit but there are some that just tickle my fancy!

e.g. don't put a banana near me, I'll throw up for sure!

Yup, we're supposed to be eating all kinds of fruit. However, I've always been the stubborn sort, so I don't quite follow the food pyramid.

Hee! I have to admit I was a terrible eater until I left home and found a lot of foods tasted a lot better when my mother had nothing to do with them!
