Here is a life update for June 2010:
Going Away Party!
Since my departure date is drawing near, we had a combination going away party / birthday party for me in Nashville. Here are just a few pictures of the party that I thought you may enjoy:

summer salad featuring corn, red pepper, & avocado w/ cilantro
wilted kale salad!
Mango pie #2
And for the record, the mango pies were scarfed down within minutes. People go crazy over this pie.... and it is SO SIMPLE! I recently posted a mango pie recipe here, but i simplified it a bit.
dates, mangos, and any fruit to decorate the top
1. puree dates and a tad of water in a food processor until smooth. Thickly coat the bottom of a pie pan & put in freezer to set.
2. cut & freeze mangos. Puree in food processor until smooth (creating mango icecream) - spread into pie pan, above date crust.
3. decorate with fruit (such as bananas and berries)
4. DEVOUR and ENJOY!
Tim and I have been going on bike rides lately as a cross training cardio workout.
doing a little yoga and core workout
Chattanooga Going Away Party
The Chattanooga going away party was significantly shorter but still full of good people and great fun.

I'm currently back in Nashville, where my dad just got a new puppy! His name is Charlie and he is a little cute fluffy mutt! I love him already!
