It was a gorgeous sunny weekend in Seattle, finally! Per usual, we spent a fair amount of time at the markets this weekend, and I have to say they were loaded with goodies.
But, I love a good surprise and to stumble onto something so simple, it’s perfection.
Mango on a stick? Yes please.
Most foods “on a stick” wouldn’t exactly scream “health food”. Think corn dogs, turkey legs, dipped chocolate strawberries, cotton candy etc.,
But what could be better than a perfectly ripe sweet and tangy mango, peeled carefully (think, big carrot peeler), cross hatched with a knife and then skewered onto a stick. Voila! No fussing, no add-on’s (though I do hear in some parts of the world, they dip in chili powder) needed. Just natures goodness.
I loved watching the reaction from folks cruising with my mango in hand, “Is that a mango on a stick?”. “Why yes it is, a mango on a stick” Sweet, simple pleasure, or goodness on a stick.
We also got several other super cool “finds” that I will feature tomorrow, a girl’s got to pace herself:) (quick preview: wrought iron table–free! whee! antlers, art, jewelry and more!)
Welcome to the week!
