Wordless Wednesday – Mango Week Continues…

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Many readers commented on JJ’s prowess (vocab builder) in carrying one large mango in her mouth.  Well, JJ has some competition!

Another great, how many mangoes can you fit in your mouth?, day.

Tasty Tuesday – Mango Bread Pudding

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Thanks to Sugar and Kol for initiating Tasty Tuesdays, today is our twelfth  participating post!

Yesterday, when many of you commented on how delicious the mango in JJ’s mouth looked, we let you know a few things Mom planned on making.  If we constructed a poll, bread pudding would have been the top vote getter.

See those mango cubes? JJ and I received 1 from each mango used – Quality control!

As Mom’s Kitchen K9s, we dedicate ourselves to protecting the ingredients, performing QC (quality control) and evaluating the finished product.  Yesterday, Mom made her annual mango ketchup for gift giving and mango bread pudding with chai spices.  Since the family that shared their gorgeous orbs practice a vegetarian lifestyle, Mom substituted almond milk for the cow’s milk in the recipe.  We think (and hope) they eat eggs; we left that part alone.

Mom will post a more thorough selection of pictures on her Kitchen Counselor FB.  Here’s the recipe with some pictures to whet (vocab builder) your appetite.

Mango Bread Pudding with Chai Spices
*We doubled recipe and used a 9 x 13 nonstick baking pan.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups stale (but not dry) white bread slices, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 2 large ripe mangoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes (3 cups)
  • 2 cups fat-free milk (we used almond milk)
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons light or dark rum, (optional) (we used frangelico)
  • 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black peppercorns (we used multicolored)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Preparation
1. Position rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 350ºF. Coat an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray.
2. Toss bread cubes and mangoes together in the baking dish.
3. Whisk milk, eggs, rum (if using), brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, ginger, pepper and salt in
a medium bowl. Pour over the bread and mangoes; allow the mixture to soak for about 5 minutes.
4. Bake the pudding until it is set and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, about 1 1/4 hours. Serve warm for best flavor.

Have a great mango bread pudding day.

P.S. To stay authentic, Mom gave us tidbits of the finished product, usually she would not, so THANKS BLOGOSPHERE!



Tasty Tuesday – Tail-gating

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Thanks to Sugar and Kol for initiating Tasty Tuesdays, today is our tenth  participating post!

The NBA Championship begins tonight between our Miami Heat and the Oklahoma City Thunder.  Here at Casa Jet, we will tail-gate… RIGHT MOM?  In case Mom needed some K9 inspiration, I shared the following link from Rodale for 5 healthy treats.  HINT, HINT!   What?  These require a dehydrator? Hmpf… this will not do… at least for tonight…

What Mom? … Mom asked me, one of her Kitchen K9s,  to share a human recipe capturing the Miami Heat theme as well as the backyard mangos which have started to drop. Then she requested a K9 recipe capturing the Miami Heat theme, however, with different fruit, since mangos are not the best for K9s. Scooby Doo Academy trained Investigator Jetty on the job!

Pineapple-Mango Chili Popsicles

Makes 6 popsicles

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup mango, chopped
  • 1 cup pineapple, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Directions:
  • Start off by making simple syrup – bring water to a boil, add sugar and stir until completely dissolved.  Set aside to cool.
  • Add mango and pineapple to a blender or food processor and puree.  Mix in simple syrup, chili powder and cayenne pepper.
  • Pass the mixture through a strainer, and discard all solids.
  • Pour into Popsicle molds, and wait patiently while the freezer works its magic.  (Mom, The Kitchen Counselor, says you can make a granita if you do not have molds!)

Smoothie Dog Treat

  • 1 cup melon (no seeds) – (Jet: must be cantaloupe for Heat colors, unless you find a deep reddish color watermelon!)
  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 1 banana

Directions

  • Puree the fruit together in a blender to make a smoothie.
  • Once you have made the smoothie, you can either serve it straight away, (freeze in ice cube trays – our idea!) or freeze in containers to make a special fruit Popsicle. .
  • Don’t forget that you can stir in applesauce instead of pureeing apples for your smoothie.

Another, Let’s Go Heat, Let’s Feed Jetty, day!
