Maybe yours are a tad too ripe?

A possibility, George! I asked a hispanic employee at the store and he told me his wife simply bites into the top and pulls off the skin with her teeth and then cuts off the rest with a sharp knife. I tried this method too, you guessed it: Got juice and pulp all over my chin! Papayas it will be.  ;D

George, is there an easy way to get all the flesh off the mango? I pull off the skin and end up with both hands dripping with delicious juice but hardly any flesh comes off that huge pit.  >:(

I cut the peel with the end of the knife (only going skin-deep) into quarters, and pull them off. To get the flesh off the pit, I slice down through the fruit on the flatter sides.

Tis a shame. Very funny story though.  ;D

Tonight, our neighborhood 'mountain bistro' - elk the last time there (which started a number of interesting posts) - hopefully more benign tonight - wonderful halibut dish, grilled w/ a cajun spiced dusting - accompanied by a ragout of tomatoes/artichoke, which I mixed w/ my spinach side-dish - was wonderful together!  Of course, a couple glasses of wine, Pinot Grigio from Oregon (King Estate) - all delicious!  :D

Looks nice, but what is this bit?

Peanut butter, flour and sugar do not make cookies. They make FIRE.

Thanks. It was a dumb question but I was trying to think of every vegetable I've encountered, and none fitted :D Noodle makes much more sense.

Although we live in Germany we don't often eat bratwurst...but when we do it's a treat. To accompany the sausage: fried potatoes and onions, red cabbage and an intensely bitter and delicious beer from the north, Jever:

Holds his head in shame... It is ketchup...specifically Heinz. A taste I acquired in childhood. Mrs Rock is appalled too. I'm probably the only person on earth who enjoys ketchup with his brats. Mrs. Rock usually has sweet Bavarian mustard but she had a gourment mustard infused with truffles on this occasion. In my defense I eat brats with mustard when I'm away from home.
