Happy Mother’s Day! I might not be by to visit as quick as I normally do-depends on how I am feeling. For those participants that know the stories about my 11 year old dalmatian, Patch~he crossed over to the Rainbow Bridge last Friday, May 9, 2008.

  1. Sounds good!!!
    I’ve been thinking about you. I know your heart is breaking today. 😦

  2. Mango and fish! What a great combination, Mercedes!

  3. I get this dish all the time at Applebees! I love it, and now I can make it myself!

    I hope you are doing ok.

  4. Mango salsa…that sounds yummy!

  5. The recipe sounds yummy.

    Big hugs to you and your family. Patch will be deeply missed. And yes, Mother’s Day includes mommies with fur-babies!

  6. I’m so sorry about Patch, Mercedes. I know how hard it can be to lose our furry friends (I lost a Golden Retriever and a Siamese in the last few years), so I know what you are going through. Our doggies and kitties are people too! May the happy memories bring you back smiles again soon.

    For Scrumptious Sunday: I love tilapia and it’s such a versatile fish. Fish is so healthy too.

  7. I just can’t seem to reply to each comment today, so I am just commenting to all of you here.

    Thanks so much for participating in Scrumptious Sunday this week! I hope everyone had a Happy Mother’s Day! I appreciate you visiting my SS post and I so much appreciate you kind words, thoughts, and prayers for my family and Patch. It means so much.
