After we established that, I opened a bottle of Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Vintage Rosé 2004. A salmon pink color with strong aromas of strawberries and red berries, it is fresh and lively in the mouth, like pink grapefruit, with a spicy, sensual finish… another winner from the Orange Widow.
Then “discreetly”, these mangoes and avocados descended upon me from the heavens. The mango was greenish yellow on the outside, a real orange orange on the inside and succulent all the way.
The avocados were delectable! I had one half with Yo’s Filipino Papaya Ginger Relish (made with shredded papaya, ginger, garlic chunks and red chili pepper in Filipino vinegar – Suka) and the other half with honey… or better yet, a melange!
Hush now, don’t explain… I’m enamored with the way Billie Holiday sings it with so much courage of conviction.
