Champagne Mangoes - P365 # 210

We found boxes of champagne mangoes at the Oriental store down in Pittsburgh last time so we bought a box. We all love mangoes with the exception of my son.  This is what I really miss during summer time in the Philippines because they are in season, hence they are cheap.  Over here, you pay almost $2  for a piece mango.
I made some  mango shake.
I also made some refrigerated cake.
July 31, 2011:
  • I did  four loads of laundry today, folded and put away already.
  • Cooked some pinakbet again and grilled pork BBQ for hubby.  I also made some wilted lettuce.
  • We went  and visited  my FIL after I did laundry and after we ate our dinner.  
Today is the 8th year death anniversary of my father.  I am sad that  he isn't here anymore to  see his other grand kids.  I am also saddened by  a death in the family of the  friends we met in Florida.  Our condolences to the Dias Family.  Dhemz lost her  Lolo or grandfather last Friday night.

I love mangoes, I read another post about them today and had to write it on my shopping list!

How do you make refrigerated cake? It looks good!

Mel Alarilla said...

Wow, a kilo of mangoes here would still be a lot cheaper than one piece of mango there. And the mangoes there probably came from Mexico and not from the Philippines. Condolence to Dhemz for the death of her lolo. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
