I had taken chicken out of the freezer this morning, but pork chops were calling my name, today.  The pork chops won.  Actually, what was calling my name was mango salsa and I just thought it would go better tonight with bone-in pork chops that it would bone-in chicken breasts.

I had all the ingredients for the salsa at home-  frozen mango chunks, red onion, cilantro and parsley both growing outside…  Happy Hal’s Jalapeno Relish for the kick… Simplicity.

I grilled the chops with a bit of mango chipotle sauce and the brown rice got a quarter-cup of unsweetened coconut mixed in to cook.  The asparagus steamed and then drizzled with butter, salt and pepper.

For dessert…..  I think I’m in the mood for cookies…..
