At the farmers market.

Mangoes

Vendor said these were a hybrid, Hayden and something else. Ripens later than other types. Did not buy, The Cat is mangoed out this season.

Enjoy. Eat well.

A small continuation of The Cat’s lunch Monday (non-food).

Surrounding the restaurant.

Turtle

Catching some rays. Also part of the restaurant ambiance.

“Giant” Mango

People that gave this mango to The Cat thought it was “too pretty” to eat. Looked at it for a couple of days, as it was ripening, decided it would be a waste not to eat it but still could bring themselves to “commit the deed”. Gave it to The Cat who quickly dispatched it with no emotional attachment at all. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Picked up over the past weekend.

Dragonfruit

You’ve seen these before.

“Canned” Mango

“Gift” by Chef Hardy. In heavy syrup, The Cat says “yum”. Still not quite sure what the dark thing is though. Have to take a bite/lick later.

Canned Mango on Dragonfruit Peel

For color, hee hee.

Can of Snails

From Chef Zone. Thought I’d try making escargot at home (since The Cat likes it). Online recipes look easy enough, but then, The Mouse “chickened”. Think I’ll have a quick consult with Chef H before attempting.

Happy 4th (if you are so inclined), if not, happy day.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Weekend Recap

Not too much happened.

Picked up a couple of mangoes at the farmers market for The Cat.

The left is from the Philippines (or was it Mexico), the right from Maui. The Cat like the Maui one better.

Used The Martha to braise chicken feet.

Hope your long weekend went well (if you had one).

Enjoy. Eat well.

Last night, I was helping the pantry chef, K, purée mangoes.

Mango Purée

Chef uses it to make a chocolate mango ganache for his candies. Can’t wait to try that.

Chef was talking to one of his good friends back in France (did I ever mention Chef received most of his training in France?). He was walking around with his mobile phone showing his friend his kitchen and introduces me as one of his chefs. Almost peed in my pants, I laughed so hard.

Don’t worry, the incident did not go to my head.

Eat well.
