Hi, I bought 3 mangoes for £1 but I only know that you can eat them in fruit salads. What else can I do with them?

Prefer my mangos with greek yoghurt, they are too sweet to go with custard IMHO.

Nice grilled.

Ah, feck the mangoes, LL. It won't be long before the rugger starts and we shall have weightier issues to discuss grin

I just had a terrible thought that you all don't know any more things for the poor mangoes. Would you then give me some ideas for watermelons?

Desiderata Tue 28-Aug-07 22:24:12

Flood defences? smile

fedda, you are being increasingly funny grin

I like Fedda very much. She is funny, and i'm going to change my name to Boco voco da flamingoes.

'What can you do with mangos' just sounds funny.

Far more amusing than, 'What can I do with a pound of mince'

But 'what can I do with a pound of mince and and onion' is more amusing.

Is it to do with the shape, I wonder?

"What can you do with a large cucumber?"

Blandmum Wed 29-Aug-07 12:45:21

The inuendo (fnar) oportunities offered by a cucumber are almost endless.

Likewise, 'What can I do with a banana'

or a kumquat

I think that a turnip is a safe bet though

What can i do with a guadalupe is baffling.

Did you call me, Boco?

I was made an asparagus risotto with a prawn and mango salad once. Delicious.

Boco Wed 29-Aug-07 13:11:50

Guadalupe is really a wonderful name. I should have called both my dds Guadalupe. [missed boat emoticon]

Apparently the fruit is a bit like dates though, and that's a little off putting, it sounds like it should be juicier than that.

I make jerk chicken with a mango, tomato and cucumber salsa. Roast a sweet potato and a spoonful of yoghurt and you're laughing!

re cucumbers: anyone else remember the thread a couple of years ago where someone asked what they could do with 2 cucumbers? Now that didn't turn out quite the way the OP anticipated either...

unknownrebelbang Wed 29-Aug-07 18:33:40

TWO cucumbers?

That's just greedy.

MyTwopenceworth Wed 29-Aug-07 18:34:44

Who was it?

Just so I know to never go round to their place for a salad.

fedda Wed 29-Aug-07 21:13:33

So sad, no ideas for watermelons then? What about tomatoes?

I have tons of recipes for tomatoes as we planted 6 and had 9 more come up on their own out of the garden. However, they are all in American, since that is where I am, and since you don't even know what an American is, they won't help. wink

fedda Wed 29-Aug-07 21:21:18

Do you care to explain?

I was going to link a simple recipe for Parmesan Chicken Paillards with Tomato Sauce, but the site is down right now. The sauce is simple and excellent, and matches great with the chicken, or is good on pasta or other things, but the website it is on is down. I have to run to take the kids to the Dr. for their checkups, but will try later if I remember. There's also an out of this world recipe for mango bread pudding on there, and I don't even like bread pudding much.

Lucky you.
