When I announced the Lychee theme for A Fruit A Month event, not everyone was happy! Some of you actually hate these fruits (SHOCK!!!) and some of you (spoiled lot ) only like the fresh Lychees! I had a choice – pick a more popular fruit and make it easy for everyone. But what’s the fun in that? I like a tough challenge, if at least one person decided to try Lychees because of this event, and if at least one person will get inspired by this round up, that is a big win, don’t you think? Look at these beauties, how can you not love them?
So, let’s see what the fellow foodies have cooked up. A beautiful array of dishes ranging from cocktails to chilly sauce, there sure is a lot of variety this month.
