Valentine's Weekend

Oh, Valentine's Day, not a day I've ever gotten too terribly excited about. I'm not a cold-hearted romance hater, I just could never get giddy over the entire holiday. I do make an attempt to celebrate it and this year's celebration was simple and relaxing. We spent time at a resort-style hotel with Jake's parents and family friends and I went to a casino (I HATE casinoes). Despite my hatred of casinoes we had a very lovely weekend.
On Friday night I sauteed some chicken breast, made mango salsa, and cooked up some yummy black beans and rice. The mango salsa was really yummy and made a great addition to our cumin and cayenne pepper seasoned chicken breasts.

Mango Super Salsa (all measurements are estimates)
1 mango, chopped
1 avocado, chopped
1 half red onion, finely chopped
1 jalapeno, seeds removed and chopped
1 half tomato, chopped
1 tablespoon honey
Adobo seasoning
Salt and Pepper (all spices are to taste)
- Mix all ingredients together and serve.
My mother-in-law and me being goofy. Like always. :-)
