Here I am with the kids in the life flight helicopter at a kids safety fair last weekend.
And a picture of all the hot mamas on their trip. The moms had a great time on their trip to Jackson Hole last weekend and came back fully rejuvinated but tired. Thanks for coming back so that I can return to playing in the garden.

In addition to a red and green salsa, I've been itching to make a mango salsa. I have tasted many mango salsa's at restaurants the past few years with fish tacos, ahi tuna and the like. Now it was my turn to try my hand at making such a salsa. I searched the internet and found a recipe I felt matched the really good mango salsa's I've tasted lately. Here is a pictre of the final product. Looks good doesnt it? Not only is the salsa really tasty but also has a very nice look to it with all the colors together.
Based on the time this bowl lasted while having friends over for appetizers before dinner, it's a hit with all. Mango Salsa
1 cup diced mango
1 cup chopped tomatoes (seeds removed)
1 finely chopped jalapeno (seeds and veins removed)
1/2 cup finely chopped cilantro
1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
1 clove garlic finely chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepperThis recipe is really easy, takes about 15 minutes to make. You can experiement to see what ingredient you might increase/decrease. The recipe I found said to refreigerate overnight to allow flavors to meld. I personally like it just after making as each bite seems to highlight a different strong flavor.
