Mangoes and nectarines and lychees oh my!

About the only thing I look forward to in summer is the abundance of ripe, juicy stone fruits.

I cannot stand the heat. I cannot stand the sizzling UV index. I cannot stand the icky sensation of sunscreen on my skin. I hate being so hot that I break a sweat just sitting under a tree. I hate sand in my sunscreen and wearing skimpy clothes to avoid dying from heat exhaustion.

But MAN I love my stone fruits.

We bought our first mangoes for the season the other day, and a massive punnet of white nectarines. They were all so amazing. Every single one.

And it’s but a mere, sweet, tart-free taste of the months ahead…

Almost makes up for the sticky, icky, exhausting weather.
