day 96: mangos or mangoes?

I didn't ask myself if I spelt "mangos" correctly until after I had inked it. Luckily, you can spell it both ways!

So I didn't make this today*, BUT I definitely plan to either tomorrow or Friday! I've never bought these "champagne mangos" before (I usually get the reddish green skinned variety), but I saw them in a recipe the other day and thought they sounded amazing, so I found some in the grocery store yesterday! They are also called honey mangos, which is cute, but champagne mangos just sound so fancily exotic. Hence I lettered it.

I thought of continuing the food diary trend, but this is what I ate today: leftover watermelon salad, a hot bowl of ramen for lunch, and then I made kimchi spam fried rice for dinner. I reeeeally wanted to letter kimchi spam fried rice. That could be a summer food, right...?

*not that it takes much effort as I have all 2 ingredients...
