So the spoiling is still Teacher Appreciation Week and today I got these GORGEOUS peach roses from a sweet little girl in my class.

Yesterday we had a luncheon and the PTA made all kinds of delicious salads for us. We had volunteers come and watch our class so that we could have a leisurly lunch and enjoy ourselves for a few minutes.

One of the things we had was a really yummy mango salsa. I got the recipe and I made it tonight for dinner. I made talapia and had it on the side and it was sooo good!

I thought I would share the recipe with you!

Mango Salsa

1 mango, peeled and sliced (make sure it's ripe!)
1 15 oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 small green or red pepper, chopped
2 plum tomatoes, chopped
3 green onions, chopped
1/4 cup Italian Dressing
1 T. lime juice
2 t. chopped cilantro
1/2 t. garlic salt
1/2 t. pepper
1/2 t. chili powder
1/2 t. hot sauce

Combine all ingredients and serve with tortilla chips.

Tonight I left out the black beans, chili powder, and hot sauce since I was putting it with fish. But it is just as delicious with everything in it and served with chips!

Tomorrow is my favorite day of the week! I hope you have a great Friday!!
