I sliced open the package and gingerly folded back the flaps, and what to my surprise and delight...
As soon as I saw the contents, I called Grant to make known the glad tidings.
His wonderful aunt just sent us a box of goodness. (& plenty to share with our family!)
It comes in the form of dried mangoes. And not just any dried mangoes. Oh, no.
These are Philippine brand. The best. Our favorite. Better than candy.
I don't even like mangoes. And I'm not a huge dried fruit person. But I am smitten with these.
We can't find them anywhere around here, so they are a rare delicacy.
What a joyous Christmas gift!
Thank you, thank you, thank you, Debbie. You are always so thoughtful and generous!

why is that the things that you cannot find, seem to be all the precious. I love mango and it is so yummy in chicken salad.

Ohhh, mom's going to be so thrilled that you posted her box of Mangoes. You know you're special when she purposely takes the shipping box into Costco just to see how many bags of Mangos she can buy to fit or should I say, 'squeeeeeeze' in it.

about this blog

Hello, I'm Summer. A people-loving introvert whose hope and life is in Jesus. His promises are my passion and my ministry is homelife. This blog is a place for me to write about everyday things. Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.
