Wink Howdy from South Texas


Howdy folks from Corpus Christi Texas. I found this great place by searching for recipes using Mango. I've been experimenting ever since I watched the series "Top Chef" (which by the way--I will never be--but it's fun to try!)
Looks like a great bunch here. I can't wait to join the fun.

Hey Dina, my stepson and his girlfriend just got back from Nuevo Progresso yesterday. I heard it was very, very hot in your neck of the woods!!!
I'm glad to be posting here. Looks like a great group of folk--and btw, thanks for the very warm welcome to the boards.

Yes, I found a Mango Salsa recipe on this board posted by buckytom. It just looks to die for. I'm going to make it tomorrow as Mangos from Mexico are very cheap here right now and very good.
I buy my shrimp right off the shrimp boats here. I'm going to try a shrimp cerviche soon as well.
We also have a freezer full of fresh fish as we go fishing every weekend (sometimes it's really great to live on the Gulf-til a storm hits!!0
