I don’t know what to talk to you guys about today. I usually try to talk about something going on in my life and then tie it into talking about the recipe I am sharing. I think I do a decent job of doing that usually, but today it’s just not coming to me. I have written numerous paragraphs just to hit delete and start over again.

To be honest, this whole weekend was a little strange. It started off with me catching a lovely stomach bug on Thursday/Friday. I also dyed my hair, which is kind of a big deal. I used to color my hair constantly. You could easily see me as a blonde, brunette, red head or a mix of the three in any given 6 month span. About three years ago, I decided it was time I stop doing all that damage to my hair and instead let it be a more natural color.

I started just adding a little light brown color to warm up my naturally light ashy brown hair…and every few months I would go get some ombré looking highlights. Well this weekend I finally wanted to do something different again. So I dyed it a dark reddish brown and I don’t know how I feel about it yet. So maybe that’s why I can’t find my writing juice? Maybe the hair dye sucked it right outta me.

Either way, my new hair and I were off to a slow start of a weekend, but Saturday started looking up when we were invited over to a friends house for dinner and pool volleyball. They were serving up wings (but because of my aversion to meat on the bone, I brought my own boneless wings — LAME I know.) and I wanted to bring over some slaw to go with.

I remembered a recipe I had loved before that had mango and Sriracha sauce in it…and after a little googling I found the recipe. I changed it up some by adding fat free plain greek yogurt instead of all mayo and a few other changes, but the flavors are mostly the same. I love that it has mango, cilantro, lime and Sriracha all in one slaw! It’s like a delicious party in a bowl!

Sriracha: just in case you somehow missed the bus, Sriracha is an awesome hot chili sauce with tons of flavor. It’s a staple in my kitchen for spicing up simple things like fried eggs! You can find it in pretty much any grocery store, including Walmart and Target.
