kthread cooks: scallops and mangoes

For Bastille Day, let us liberate mangoes from the realm of the sweet, scallops from the savory, and join them in equal measure with bacon.

This tripartite celebration was inspired by the mango tree outside my magic cottage and the mango festival at Miami’s Fairchild Garden.

(To watch it in HD–it looks much better–go here).
