Since I have so much Cauliflower Rice on hand I was looking for recipes…and low and behold a frind comes by and brings me 2 mango’s!! Why?? I haven’t a clue. So I found this easy recipe at tastefulventure and had everything g on hand, so I made it !! It was quite good !! The sweetness of the mangos and then the squeeze of a full lime, for the dressing !! And it is sooo easy…well except for cutting the mango !! That is  for in itself!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 head of cauliflower chopped and put in food processor to rice consistency and THEN PUT IN MICROWAVE for about 4 mins and stir, and put in fridge to cool.
  • 4-5 green onions chopped on an angle to look pretty
  • a bunch of cilantro chopped (about 1/2 c or more depending on how much you like cilantro !!
  • 1 TBS minced garlic
  • kosher salt to taste..don’t be shy
  • 1 large lime, juiced..(that means, squeezed)
  • 1can Block beans drained & rinsed
  • 1/4 c of red, OR orange OR whatever color pepper you have…I even used jalapeño…( or mix, it’s up to you !!)
  • 1 mango peeled, cored and chopped !! And that, my friends requires that maybe you should google how to do it because it is a slippery son of a gun !!
  • 12 grape tomatoes cut in half.

My prayers are answered!

“Is that the smell of coffee”, I ask while washing at the sink?…
But as I reach to pour it, the “NN” is there with my drink…
That full glass of H2O with the squeeze of a lemon
I down that sucker, for coffee…ah, manna from heaven!

The “NN” is flitting from one thought to the next
“Breakfast”, “Drink your Water”, “Now let’s go walk”…oops, forgot “you need to stretch”!!
So, I stretch..I drink..I am ready for the drill…
“We’ll walk the loop, around the complex…and take on those hills!

“BUT WAIT…what’s this? Could it be a sign I love??
Is that really what I have prayed for..from the heavens up above??
At first, a fine mist but then a hard pour…
I am jumping for Jesus…as I open the door!

My prayers, they have been answered
I’m FINALLY getting my way
A reprieve from the “NN” and boot camp
Ah YES…it’s my lucky day!!!!!!
