Stamping Space Sunday (late), a recipe and a winner!

Well, technically it is still Sunday (9:30pm) so how about a Stamping Space Sunday! I haven’t done that in forever. Mostly because you’ve seen my stamping space and overall – it hasn’t changed much! If you haven’t seen it, you can click <here> and find all the Stamping Space posts. But I thought I would share something new I just added. Tiffany gave me one of these the other day – something she found while getting ready for the garage sale. I’ve been looking for some type of shelving or storage so that I could put my Making Memories paints out. I wanted to be able to see all the colors easily and piling them up on a wire shelf in my closet just wasn’t cutting it. I picked up a bunch of these (basically every color I didn’t already own) during the Recollections going-out-of-business sale. So I have quite a few of these little bottles now. This seems to work pretty well!

It’s called an expand-a-shelf. It’s one shelf that is 14″ wide and you can pull a second one out from inside it to expand it to 27″. Anyway, I figured it would work perfect on my second table since I had just cleaned it off and rearranged it anyway (I have the cuttlebug in front of the paint on the table).

I also have a new recipe to share. The boys love fish and salmon and we’ve been trying to incorporate it into the menu once a week since it is so good for you and I’d like it if they grew up liking some healthier foods like that! So we tried a new recipe for Salmon with Mango Salsa. Well…..it was good and all…..but we really liked the Mango Salsa! Cause of course we had to taste test it before we put it on the fish! And well, we just kept eating it! So we added that to the Super Bowl menu and just had it with tortilla chips! Anyway, I thought I would share the recipe with ya.

Mango Salsa

1 mango – peeled and diced (1 cup)

1 sm avocado – peeled and diced (1/2 cup)

1/4 c red onion, diced

2 T fresh cilantro – chopped

1 t salt

1 t lime juice (I also squeezed 1 fresh lime over ours)

1/8 t ground cumin

1/8 t ground red pepper

1 1/2 T papaya lime serrano sauce (by Fischer Weiser) – the recipe calls for 1/4 cup Consorzio Mango fat-free dressing but my store didn’t have that so we used this other stuff instead

Just toss it all in a bowl and stir. Serve with chips, that’s it!

And the winner of the Valentine stamp set is:

    That salsa is good! Me and a friend made one up similar to that a few years back. If you are into trying something different, try adding some chopped fresh basil or some roasted red bell peppers. Yummy! I love spice, so I also add some fresh jalapeno. 🙂

  • I’m so excited that I won! Thanks Emily – I have sent you an email!

    Have a super Monday – I know that I will!

    Congrats Michelle!!! That shelf is really sharp! Yummy recipie!!TFS!

  • I have those expand-a-shelves in the pantry for canned goods — never thought to use them in my craft room! What a great idea!

  • I’ve loved mango salsa for ages. Can’t get any of those ingredients here- well, at least not avocado, the sauce, limes (pricey as all get out!!) I’m not sure if mangos are easy to get here or not though!

    There is a restaurant at grapevine mills mall (taco fresco or something? it is in the food court on the left side…) and they have a salsa bar and it has mango salsa. I will add like a full cup of it on top of whatever I order there. SO good!

  • I have an expanda shelf in my cupboard for spices – hmmm may need to steal it – it would fit right in with the 3 round rotating spice racks for beads, and the rotating kitchen utensil holder for my markers, sissors and rulers….. 🙂 – I don’t cook much but LOVE the kitchen stuff!!!

    P.S. take care of your leg !!!
