When life gives you 6 lbs of papaya...
Make papaya sorbet!
Over the weekend, one of our guards, Joseph (actually, they're both named Joseph), gifted us a papaya. He cut it up, removed the seeds and put it on a nice plate. Roger, who was out of town, loves papaya. I, regretfully, do not. We weren't sure how Millie felt about it, but apparently on Sunday she was in a I-love-papaya mood, so she ate about three pieces. And of course to show my appreciation for the generous gift, I ate a piece too (desperately wishing to myself that Millie would steal my piece and eat it for me). By Monday evening, Roger & Millie managed to make their way through the 1 lb papaya.
Millie's enthusiasm on Sunday led Joseph to believe that papaya was her favorite food so on Wednesday he gifted us a 3 kilo papaya!! Sadly (but fortunately for the fruit flies), the love for papaya had passed and Millie wouldn't muster a single bite, so I made papaya sorbet and papaya sorbet popsicles. They will make their debut this afternoon once the sun comes out and Millie is awake from her nap. Let's hope it's a success! Pictures to follow!
