I didn't know about this, but I just walked in the door from the grocery store where I was buying all kinds of fruit. I had a sudden huge craving today.

ITA.
I loathe and detest matzah almost as much as shoes.
thankfully, matzah is more of a Pessach fare, for Tu Beshvat, we just get to eat fruit and plant trees : : :

we actually had sooooo many mangoes this week I made a big jar of mango chutney, and chopped up and froze heaps of them.
I love eating frozen mango chunks on hot days.
not to mention running them through the blender with a dab of coconut cream and getting icecream
