Mango for Lunch

Today with our school lunch we had a mango. For the youngest children the mangoes had been sliced, but for the older kids and adults, we were just handed a whole mango. Yum. Except that today was hamburger and french fries day, with no silverware.

It's really hard to eat a mango without a knife. Unless, that is, you're in the bathtub. I ended up peeling off the skin and sticking my face in it. I was covered with mango juice for the rest of the afternoon and there were fibers from the fruit between my teeth, too. I really should have gone home to take a shower before continuing with my day.

Still, it was delicious.

Here's another post I made about mangoes, including why joy is a mango and a link to the correct way - or a correct way - to eat them. (Oops, looks like the link to photos of a good way to cut them is no longer working. Here's another one with photos.)

Wow. Just thinking about it makes me itch.

I sure am glad I'm not allergic to mangoes. And I'm sorry you are!
