What I Ate Wednesday (The Mango Corer Edition)

I think mangoes were on sale everywhere last week. I asked a friend to get me a few when she said they were on sale for $1 each at her grocery store, and then I picked up a few more when I saw them on sale at my grocery store. Needless to say, this week’s What I Ate Wednesday post is all about mangoes!

Luckily, I have this handy mango corer that makes it so easy to enjoy this delectable fruit.

Mango Corer - Step 1

I often enjoy mango straight up–just slice and eat.

It also looks really lovely (and tastes delicious) in this fruit salad
with strawberries and blueberries.

Of course, it goes quite well with baked oatmeal and plain Chobani® yogurt.

    I didn't know those mangoe corers actually work!!! I want one… the way I end up hacking mine away from the seed is embarassing. Thanks for including my TVP oats! 🙂

  6. You are very sweet to include our post, although you tangled my name up with Debbie's. No worries. I'm off to put a manila mango into my morning smoothie. Thanks for all the recipe ideas.

    I LOVE mango! But the last ones we picked up were WAY overripe and bruised. Bad juju. Will try again soon though!

    One time I slaved in the kitchen to make the fancy mango-sauced dish from scratch. And nobody ate it. Nobody. But they took it even a step further and bashed my mangoed-cooking that they didn't even eat. The mere mention of the word "mango" brings back the emotional scars. Yes, go ahead. Please feel sorry for me. ((sigh))

    I have a strawberry slicer that I use all the time. I love your blog intro picture with the cherry blossoms (is that right?) and the runner with the cross on her necklace. Very cool. How did you do that?

    LOVE mango. Hmmm, but I might need to get a mango corer! Would make my life easier. Aside from eating it straight up, my favorite is mango salsa. Can't wait to try the others!
