There are three things you should know about me.
1. If given the choice, I would choose a mango over chocolate any day.
2. Summer time reading by the pool is one of my favorite activities.
3. Mangoes + a hot summer day = one happy Angie.
Today was overcast and rainy. The boys and I spent the day rotating between outside and inside activities… and when dinner time came, I knew we needed a little sunshine in our food.
