I smell like mango

20 mangoes will do that for you. Very sticky, very yummy. Our school had a mango drive and we bought two trays this year. 40 mangoes – 36 by the time I started slicing and dicing them for the freezer – which ought to last a while.

Master Tadpole is eyeing them off for his ‘mongoes’ (mango and orange smoothies, a recipe of his own devising), my bloke is eyeing them off for his own smoothies and mango lassies. I like to think I’m a little more sophisticated. Mango icecream, mango and passionfruit trifle, mango dacquiri…

And because inquiring minds want to know, the remaining 36 mangoes are on track to provide 7.25kg of diced fruit at $6.95 per kilo.

Good country, ‘straya.

    It’s so good to have a school who fundraise by selling stuff you might actually want.
