Mango Pineapple Tilapia and The Weekend

I hope you had a good weekend. Mine was occupied mostly by football and these things:


Delicious Sunday Morning Breakfast

Mexican Fare


Welcome back October Sam!

I tried a delicious mango and pineapple salsa from Whole foods a few weeks ago. It was addicting and was finished in one sitting. I thought it would be good on fish and so I decided to copy it.

Turns out, I was right.

Summer isn’t over yet!

I had a hard time not eating all of this before I topped the fish with it.
