What's in Season - Summer

I love the fruit of Summer.

Magoes, Melons, Stone Fruit ummmmmmm  I can't get enough.

We were very fortunate this past fortnight.

Gary's uncle has had a really good crop of mangoes.

He has sent us up 2 boxes of them.

The boys love them.

I love them.

Gary loves them.

They have been the best tasting mangoes I've eaten all season.

I love them!
After the yucky weather we've had since Christmas it was so nice today to wake up to the sun shining and no rain :D
So tonight was going to be a BBQ tea ever since waking.
A couple of pices of steak and a few snags .... yummy!

First post of 2010

My intentions were good.

I meant to have at least a few posts here by now but you'll have to go read to catch up :D

I am over all the christmas/holiday foods. So yummy, so rich, so naughty but yet so ....... hmmmmm what's the right word?


No, not quite the right word hahaha

But I'm so ready to move on and back to normal food.

Saturday is the last day for "junk" food in the house for the boys. Dad is back to work next week so that means holiday food is finished (yay screams my purse).

I hope to start menu planning again. I won't promise anything but I'll try to be consistent :D

Now I'm off to have some quick toast for dinner. Boring yes, but appetising at the same time.
