Instead of flowers, this is what my husband brings home on Valentine's Day. From the top left, clockwise: ugli fruit, cuke-a-saurus (that's the real name), mango (very ripe), and carambola (starfruit). The cuke-a-saurus obviously gets more points for having such an awesome name.
And here is everything all cut up. It worked perfectly with the delicious barbecue meal I had put together for him. My kitchen light is obviously not the best for making food look appetizing, but this was delicious, and so exotic. What a fun treat!
When we lived in Provo, every Valentine's day I would get a box of mangoes. I love exotic fruit, but it's usually too expensive for me to justify buying on a regular basis, so my darling boy gets it for me. The last couple years, he's done something different, but this is a fun tradition to return to. If only carambolas came in a long-stemmed bouquet version. :)
