Mandarin Oranges from Tuckey's

It's the middle of the winter. Although Saturday was a sunny warm day, Sunday was grey and chilly. Who knows what today will bring...

While I'm editing photographs for new recipes to share with you, I want to bring a bit of sunshine and sweetness to you. These are some gorgeous, juicy and just so-cheerful-to-look-at mandarin oranges from Tuckey's.


Don't you just love citrus especially in the cold months? These mandarin oranges are great because the skin peels easily, there are no seeds in sight, and they come with gorgeous deep-green leaves!


If you are as fortunate as I am to have Monday off, enjoy it!!! And come back soon to see recipes for lamb shanks, Indian vegetarian curry with tofu and perhaps something with asparagus.

Hi Mango and Tomato, big fan of you. I work right across the street from the Shake Shack that you visited on Connecticut Ave., NW awhile back. I don't usually have the time to stand in long lines for lunch so I haven't tried it but I'm sure they are probably good.

I really like to cook and live in Silver Spring and so go to the Tacoma Farmer's Market, which I'm sure you are familiar with. The market features a lot of producers from PA, where I am originally from but I was not familiar with the one you featured so thanks for the post.

And I especially love those mandarins with the leaves still on them!! Sooo pretty!

I love citrus season. We get some great mandarinas down here in Mexico, but my favorite is the mandarina juice at the markets. So good! Enjoy your day off :)

thanks!! so far, so good ;) The juice sounds delicious, but I doubt I'd be able to find it here.

Wish Foodgawker and Tastesspoting agreed with you ;)
I also bought a bag of Cuties at Target yesterday. It’s almost gone.
