It was pouring rain all day, by the time I was on my way home there were enormous puddles along the roads. Puddles that went midway up the side of a car tire. Puddles with rushing water. I had to step through one of these puddles on my way home. The moment my foot touched the water my left flip-flop was swept off my foot. I was a little shocked and didn’t realize what had happened for a few moments. By the time I did catch on, the flip-flop had made its way into speeding traffic. I thought about chasing after it, but I’m pretty sure if I had I would have been run over. So instead I walked the three blocks home with one shoe. Fun.
So to bring some sunshine into my evening I made myself a nice salad with mango, avocado, and prosciutto wrapped shrimp. Something about a nice ripe mango makes me so happy, and this one was delicious. The prosciutto also adds a really nice salty-ness to the shrimp.

And now I’m going to go eat some ice cream.

It’s just so funny that your flip flop floated away like that! Really sad, but also really funny!
I hope they weren’t too pricey….
Ripe mangoes are definitely a good source of happiness!
It was just an Old Navy flip-flop, no big loss. It was really the uncomfortable walk home that was the issue.
This salad looks delicious and definitely makes up for your walk home. I hate flip flops in the rain!
Run away flip-flop, you can’t make this stuff up ;-) When flip-flops go bad they really go bad, overall just not a dependable shoe! I love the name of your salad, I just had to check it out and it looks good, mangoes are so good right now!
What a horrible way to come home. Rain and shoeless. I am so glad you had the ingredients to make this lovely salad and ice cream to salve the bad commute.
Love the salty-sweet and the smooth creamy – this would brighten my day!
That is a perfect description!
aww terrible way to get home for sure!
Mangoes do make everything better! Salad looks divine!
Oh! That sure look like a sunshine in a plate, so colorful and yummy.
