Le-Le-Le-Leftovers! (And A New Recipe For You)

The leftovers.

They were deluxe.  So packed with flavor!  Mmm, mmm, mmm.

And packed with color as well, and those of us who are concerned with nutrition know that when dealing with fruits, veggies, and natural foods, the more color the wider variety of nutrients!

We topped our leftover mojo marinated meat with sliced avocados, onions, and my mom's freshly made Pineapple Mango Salsa.  She often makes this to go with tilapia or salmon, but it was fabulous as a topper for these wraps!

Pineapple Mango Salsa

1 small can of pineapple tidbits, drained
1 mango, cut
1 mini red gourmet pepper, chopped
1 mini orange gourmet pepper, chopped
1 mini yellow gourmet pepper, chopped
a little more than 1/2 a jalapeno, chopped finely
2 to 3 TBSP chopped fresh cilantro
juice of 2 limes

(zero points for you Weight Watcher folks out there!)

Smiling just thinking about it - two new favorite meals!  Would sit here and think about all that goodness for a minute longer but I have to run, it's time for one of my very favorite parts of the day.  Picking up my little fellow from Pre-K and seeing his face light up when he sees me in the carpool line!! Oh, the joys of being a mommy!
