Mmm. We made one of our favorite breakfasts this morning - breakfast burritos with italian sausage and mango salsa. Just make mango salsa (dice up 2 fresh mangoes, add about 1/2 of a diced red onion, a generous handful of chopped cilantro, and 1/2 to 1 whole minced habanero, depending on the size of your cojones) and serve it over scrambled eggs and hot italian sausage, crumbled and cooked with the eggs. The fennel-y, sweet, hot italian sausage is great with the sweet and spicy and oniony and clean, green tasting salsa, creamy eggs, and floury neutral tortilla. (It's even better with sour cream and a little queso fresco, but we're trying to be a little virtuous.)

We also had some leftover balsamic and molasses mashed sweet potatoes, so Robert made potato cakes out of them (smooshed them up with an egg, dipped them in egg and breadcrumbs, and fried them up.) They were also super yummy - light and sweet and crispy.

I have to say that EVERYTHING looks fabulous on our new colorful and gorgeous fiestaware! And we bought one of those sets of brightly colored nesting melamine mixing bowls from Costco yesterday, (the last set, so we got it for $8.97 instead of $19.99 - hooray!) so that makes everything even MORE cheery. I want to set up a little cot in the kitchen and LIVE in there now.
