Sweet Manila Mangoes

Are they gorgeous or what?

Found these Manila Mangoes or sometimes they call it here Champagne Mangoes from Mexico, either way these mangoes are just simply delectable, juicy, sweet, tangy, delicious and luscious hahaha...yes honestly they are. I was lucky, when I saw them I was like wow I've got to buy these. My son loves mango. He could eat two in one sitting and my husband as well. So I went ahead and bought it. And guess what 16-18 pieces ( 1 box) is just six bucks. So we have been enjoying magoes for a few days now and we have given some to my son's teacher and she enjoyed them too and said that they are really sweet.

Well aside from mangoes, ever since summer started we have different kind of fruits on our bistro table in our kitchen. To the right is the picture. We have watermelon, cantaloupe ( cantaloupe juice, a constant request from my son. He loves it especially that its been hot lately). We have some apples, banana, tangerine orange and we have some bloddy red orange too from Italy. I was in the grocery store one early morning and the gentleman from the produce dept. said they are sweet and its from Italy (actually I know about it already coz last time I was there the other guy told me about it and bought two but never got the chance of eating it. So I just bought two again ( a bit pricey) just to try and they are really bloddy red in the inside and taste just like orange. Oh and we have some Honeydew too behind the watermelon. So out of these fruits, I make some fruit salad. I diced,cube them and put them in the fridge and we eat it as our snacks or dessert after meal. Healthy, simple and refreshing especially during hot summer dayssssssssss.

On Father's Day

Father's Day was celebrated in our son's school. All fathers were invited for a luncheon celebration . Our son insisted for his father to come and so like a good father he took two hours lunch from work on that day. He was treated for lunch with pizza,fruits and salad. And hand made gift from our son, key chain with a mini basketball and a handmade card with our son's very own handwritten signature (we are very proud that at a young age he could write his own name).
Father's Day came, my husband just would like to celebrate it at home with our son and I. And so my son and I gave him a father's day card and a polo shirt that matches our son's and mine. So we will be the three stooges...lol. Ofcourse I have cooked his favorite spaghetti, baked some garlic bread and cooked some chicken afritada his new favorite.
Below are the pictures:

For my dad we sent him a father's day card and some scratcher and a penny for him to use to scratch the scratcher big spin. He loves scratcher and guess what he won a few bucks. He called us and got a big laugh about the card,the scratchers and the penny and most of all for winning some money.

Father's day was celebrated simply but full of laughter,love and peace.

So for my husband who is the best father there is for my son, deserve everything good in life. And for my dad who's been there and very supportive of us, we respect and love him dearly.
