Another Great Day & We Have A Strange Question

We started off with having brunch with Donna & Stu at Denny’s. The conversations flowed as if we had known one another for many years. I guess we sort of do with all this blogging, Facebook and forums online nowadays. It’s amazing how often people only read one another’s travels on the blogs they keep and then when they meet it’s as if they have been friends forever. Now, that is not always the case, we have met a few folks that we did not click with but those times have been few and far between. We totally forgot to take any photos, but we are hoping that since we will be here for a few more days that we might get a photo of the 4 of us.

Now for our strange questions!

We bought a fresh mango from the farmer here at Bee’s RV Resort and waited for it to ripen. We have never ate a fresh one before so we were unsure how to cut it or how it was suppose to taste. We thought it tasted really sweet and juicy but were we suppose to peel it? Eat the skin? It was really hard in the middle, was that a seed? Is there anybody out there who has the answers and are willing to share their knowledge about mangos with us?

Glad you are had a great time with Stu & Donna. And yes it is fun to meet up with the bloggers that we call our friends. Hope you get that picture before you guys all head separate directions.

The mango...yes you peel it. I cut it in half like an avocado. and then I cut it in slices or cubes and no you don't eat the hard center. My mangos skin is usually a little more reddish/orange than green. I love mangos in fruit salad or with cottage cheese as a change to pineapple. Good for you for trying new things.

Here's a link to a video on you tube that demonstrates how to cut a mango. My sister living in Hawaii for 20 years and she always used the dice method as shown on the video. As long as you can eat it, I guess any method works. No, do not eat the peel. Enjoy.

I have no idea about the mango :( The only ones I have ever eaten were dehydrated but very nummy!

We always love meeting other bloggers and nomads! Glad you had fun with Stu & Donna! We have met only a very few people we didn't "click" with, but there have been a couple. Never have regretted meeting any of them though! If nothing else, it is always interesting!
