I just slice off a chunk, then cut the fruit from the skin, then cut into chunks or whatever.

I never bother with a mango till it is slightly soft and I can smell the fruit. If I cant smell the fruit, it aint ready, and if it is firm and I can smell it, it still aint ready (for me).

Grilling: Just put it on the grill for an hour, turn it occasionally if you like, or just let is sit. Then split it open with a knife, cut it so you have the skin like a pair of doors, peel them back and eat the inside with a spoon. Nom-nom!

How do you slice them so you get anything other than the long sides?Do you peel them first?
I have seen the video of doing th criss cross cuts and turning the skin inside out but that only works on the outer slice, 2 per fruit. What about the rest?
How do you grill them? Do you use a soft ripe one on the grill or a firm one?

We're renovating our office here at work. Two areas are done, now they're starting to work on my area. I had all my stuff except computer/phone moved a month ago and then my boss changed her mind and doesn't want us to move yet. So for a month I went back and forth from my computer at my old desk, to my new temporary desk where ALL my stuff was. The plan was to move temporarily to another department and then move back to my newly remodeled workspace.

Then today one of the workers tells her we can't be in our area from 5:30 a.m. to at least 11 tomorrow morning, as he will be working overhead.

So she tells me to go ahead and have X move my computer stuff to the temporary spot.(No, thanks, no need to bother the IT guy, I can do this myself, despite her protests to the contrary.)

So as I'm packing up my computer and phone onto a cart, she says "WHen he's done tomorrow, you can move back here." Um, no. I told her I'm not doing that and I walked to my new cube. "Alrighty then" i heard her say. Geez, the control issues are strong in that one.

?? You don't. The long sides is all you get. The rest of it that's wrapped around the seed? That for you to gnaw off and suck dry till nothing's left but the seed and the juice that ran down your arm. Here's a tutorial, rookie.

They charge $1.00 a mango on sale up here. I want to get all the meat off to use it.

Okay- I'm on a mission. I will let you know what the foodies say.

That's a good price. Regular price just yesterday was $1.69 each. Gonna hit the produce market this week to see if its cheaper.

We have successfully buried the young man. The hole was not too hard to dig really deep; we hit mostly-sand about six inches down and it was easy from there. Every kid over the age of six took a turn laying on their bellies to scoop some out and we had a small crowd for the actual internment so we weren't able to say any prayers or anything; there was some pushing and shoving to get a better view. Lulu made a little bouquet of some purple flowers she found in the garden and some parsley (Streak's favorite) tied together with a long stem of grass and we put that right on top of him and let the kids fill in the hole. We used a garden ornament that was in a different part of the garden as a temporary marker until we find something more suitable; perhaps one of those stepping stone kits with glass beads and mosaic tiles...

You're a good mom. Your people are good people. Your daughters are awesome, sensitive little girls.

No, race. She clearly wrote "the young man." She lured a young neighborhood man into her home ("Can you help me reach something that's way up high?"), then trapped him, drugged him, gutted him, and then they buried him.

That was my original thought, but I did not want to sound accusatory.

Those of you with daughters: do them a favor and teach them how to walk in heels when they're teenagers. It's not easy learning at age 36... old dogs and new tricks and all that.

I'd better be the hottest girl at this effing party....
