A French Country Weekend
A mango was not on my current "to eat" list. It would have certainly made it there in the weeks to come however.
Today we had lunch chez des amis and the dessert was cubes of cantaloupe and mango. Except for the crispy potatoes with the roast beef, everything was a perfect fit for a healthful, relatively low-cal regime. A simple salad was the entrée.
Because this was the first mango of the year 2012, I made my wish upon a mango. As you know, same wish, new fruit. I'm thinking about purple grapes for next week. (This is a wish that takes time, but I assume the more I wish the better the chances. . .)
I made my new year's wish -- each time one eats a fruit for the first time in a new year -- on melons months ago.
Weather Report: Chilly, i.e. cardigan and scarf necessary, sunny, invigorating.
A demain mes tres, tres, tres, chers amis.
