Hey all.

I was at the grocery store tonight, and lo and behold, what did I see but guava! At first they looked like deformed limes to me. I'd never seen any before, although I LOVED this raspberry guava juice my mom used to get (has anyone heard of Koala? I think that's what it was called ...), so of course I had to get a couple.

But I'm at a loss as to what to do with them. I'm thinking of maybe poaching them in red wine and then using them as a topping for cheesecake.

I went vegetarian a few months ago, so that leaves meat options out.

Speaking of which, mango season is upon us. Who else is excited about getting their hands on the king of the mangoes? Mmmmmmmm. I actually made this mango ginger tofu the other night (along with quinoa with pan fried corn and scallions with orange zest and chives), and it was amazingly delicious.
