J is for Jicama and Q is for the latest Baby Quilt

Here's a photo of the latest baby quilt. I just finished it a few days
ago and it is on it's way to Berlin Germany.
Our neighbor up the street is flying there today to meet her
first grandchild-a darling little girl.
and here is the latest recipe for the ABC series:

Mexican Fruit "Gazpacho Salad"
6 servings

1 1/2 # papaya
3/4 # jicama
1 large mango
1 cucumber
1 orange
3 Tablespoons lime juice ( 1 squeezed lime should work)
1 teaspoon New Mexican chili powder or other medium hot chile
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
2 Tablespoons finely chopped cilantro
Peel and dice (and seed if necessary) the papaya, jicama, mango, cucumber and orange
Combine all the fruit in a serving dish. Mix the lime juice, chili and salt in a small bowl.
Pour over the fruit, add the cilantro and toss gently but well. Serve. YUM.

Refrigerate if not serving immediately.

I love comments and will attempt to reply to each one. However, lately I have been getting "Unknown" comments that are linked to some sort of web page. I will never open this sort of comment and will immediately mark as spam. I am not interested in opening something that could be detrimental to my blog security etc. Never have enjoyed hackers! Thanks!
