A few days ago, I visited a good friend of mine. When I ventured on the rear of the yard, to my delight I was greeted with a tree laden with these tropical fruits. These mangoes brought back childhood memories that made my heart warm a bit. You see, my dear mom was a great lover of these delights.She could sit and devour several of these sweet, juicy and refreshing fruits.

Of course, being from the tropics mango trees were and are still very popular. As a child, I can remember hopping across my neighbor’s picket fence in order to secure that flavorful and colorful specimen. Oh, I had to watch out for those four-footed friends Imagemany a times.

I’ve a few ideas. These juicy and sweet mangoes will be transformed into a cool and refreshing drink. I’ll incorporate ginger, fresh lemon and orange juice. I’ll definately reserve a portion for a great mango salsa. This salsa will certainly aid in my spicy jerk wings. Yum, yum!

Presently, I reside in So. Florida.Living here in Florida offers varied cultures, people of different ethnic backgrounds. I've a great passion for the culinary side of life. Therefore, being in So. Fl., provides me the great accessibility of fresh seafood, fruits and vegetables. Moreover, I've the choice to indulge in a amazing foods from different cuisines.This ability provides great inspiration for me to retreat to my humble kitchenette and replicate these dishes.It warms my heart to be able to break bread with loved ones. I'm an avid reader and love to get lost between these beautiful words. I find reading to be a social activity because it allows me a peek inside other people's minds which in turn makes me more empathetic towards others. One day in the near future, I hope to publish my very own words in the area of poetry as well as my other love, food. Yoga and speed walking are just a few of the things that keep me balanced and centered. I love family and friends; and, of course, wholesome foods with a glass of cocktail. Life is what you make of it. And, I try to savor and enjoy the simple and precious moments.
