Man O' the Mangoes!

WOW! Felix, my divine Caribbean husband, has been 30 feet up the mango tree in the backyard about 15 times in the last week... Who'd a thunk treeclimbing could be so sexy! Lucky me! Mangos, mangos everywhere... I LOVE IT!!! Made a glorious smoothie of 2 fat, juicy ripe mangos, 2 bananas, 1/2 c. cashews, about 3 huge shakes of allspice, 1 Tbsp. honey, and a pinch of salt. I blended it until smooth and creamy in the vita-mix and then added about 20 ice cubes. Ahhhhh... Tropical paradise. Our 4 year old son Lincoln sucked his share right down and was happy as can be. Powerful smoothie, that one.

I also made a very vibrant and attractive salad out of nothing too exciting. Sure was pretty though so here's a pic.

All love and blessings till later.

Oh yeah Val- and our tree is such a beauty too! About 50 feet tall and gave up at least 100 mangoes this year and it isn't over yet! I am so blessed. I'll send ya some if ya want...
