Avacado Mango Salsa & Coconut rice

Boy oh boy it has been a loooong time since i've used this blog. I had this goal to get a bunch of recipes up here before I moved from Buffalo but it never happened. And then I came to Albuquerque and started unpacking. The extent of my cooking for the past 2 1/2 months has been smoothies and cereal! But i'm definitely back. I've been cooking for the last couple weeks. Here's a few things i've made over the last little bit that are wirth keeping around.

You're going to love this. I had forgotten about this recipe but it's simply wonderful. Perfect for summer. I made it with Wegmans Teriyaki chicken marinade and it was one of the better dinner's we've had in awhile. Easy, fast, and delicious. That's my style. Love this summer meal
