It was easy to mix up and easy to bake. However, my loaf was completely baked in one hour instead of the one and a half hours Dorie suggested on the recipe.
It took two mangoes to make the two diced cups.
We had breakfast while it was baking. Then, we had a slice of this fabulous bread with some strawberries about thirty minutes after our breakfast. This could be belly fat disaster if I continue eating like this!
You do know mangoes are an aphrodisiac fruit, right? I'm just sayin. . . . be careful how many you eat!
A very long, long time ago, Rosemary Clooney sang a song named, you guessed it - Mangos
Mangos, papaya just nuts from the fire
In my house of straw I have so much more
Pie from the peach and I fix in the kitchen
Each bite is just right for your appetite
Now if you like-a the way I cook
And if you like-a the way I look
Then step inside my shady nook A
nd you'll find mangos and papayas, anything your heart desires.
Mangos, papayas, just nuts from the fire
The food is so good, you will wanna stay
Eat up and drink up and you'll think up
The day when we say preacher man, okay
My movie plug this week is Vicky Christina Barcelona starring Javier Bardem, Scarlett Johanssen, and Penelope Cruz. It is a Woody Allen film so I thought it might be too weird for me, but we ended up enjoying it. I have never thought of Javier in a sexy, attractive way, but in this movie, he certainly has a way with words. And . . it made me want to visit Barcelona really bad. Instead, I decided to work on an itinerary for our already partly planned trip to Italy. Where does all my time go? Are you like me, you just never have enough of it? Anyway, maybe some of you will see Javier as your eye candy this week. He doesn't do it for me, but the movie is good.
Now I"m off for a tour of the air traffic control tower here at the airport. Does that sound exciting? Okay I admit - I'm not excited by it. I am going as a favor to the yankee who does so much for me and he really is excited. Have a great week!
