A few of my favorite things…

Mmmmm…. Greek yogurt jumped right to the top of my favorite yogurts.  And Greek yogurt with HONEY is a MUST.  It comes in a small package OR you can by plain Greek yogurt and add your own honey (or agave nectar) to it.  The Stonyfield Farm brand is really good – I use it for a fruit dip (especially strawberries), but it can be rather sweet on its own.  That’s why I suggest adding your own honey to plain yogurt.  You can make it as sweet or unsweetened as you want it to be!  Either way, you must try Greek yogurt with honey!

fruit salad

I love fruit salad!  And nooooo, not store bought fruit salad that gets you all excited with the lone kiwi on top (which you thought would be throughout the salad).  I’m talking about all-out cutting board, big knives fruit salad with some elbow grease put into it!  Getting creative with your fruit salad when you have guests over is an instant hit!  Throw in some papaya, mango, or white peaches and the crowd goes nuts!

Check out my Caribbean Fruit Salad back during the days when the mango and I had battles.  I have since conquered the stubborn fruit.

And click here to find out how to successfully cut a mango.

Egg white and goat cheese omelettes cooked in olive oil… enough said.   This and the honey yogurt tend to be my daily breakfast.

coffee

My Gevalia coffee in a french press.

bean

My Bean.  Her name is Noodles, but  I always call her “Bean”.  Because that makes sense ;o)

I was going to put a picture of my hubby, but he is too shy….

And you, of course!  If it weren’t for you, I’d have no one to post for!

You should really sit down and think about your favorite things… food, travel, family, friends… Just sharing these few favorites with you puts an enormous smile on my face….

    Don’t know if you are aware of the trick to finding the pit in the mango to make it easier to cut (a coworker taught me this one).

    Stand the mango on its end and let it roll onto its side on the cutting board. Whichever way it winds up laying, the pit is horizontal to the cutting board. That makes it easier to cut around it.

    As for the rest of the mango cutting, Dayton’s trick (once you have large sections of the fruit cut off) is to score the fruit into cubes in the skin (make sure not to cut through the skin). Then he pops the skin inside out and runs the knife along the inside of the skin to release all the yummy mango cubes. Yes, this does involve Dayton using a knife, but he seems pretty skilled at this particular activity, so I let it go =)
