I’ve been lazy of late.

Ok maybe not lazy but pressed for time so maybe the word is busy.

I don’t seem to have time to do ANYTHING outside of my work! And I don’t seem to do enough of my work either. Don’t know what happened to the 24 hours in a day coz to me it feels more like 8hrs.

Oooh and did I mentioned? I’m not getting enough sleep so beats me where my time is going.

Anyway last week after my not so productive day I felt like a speedy “healthy” meal so I opted for fish and mango cucumber salad. Food was ready in about 15minutes start to end, how happy was I? So this is a recipe for one of those days when u wish u had a cook in your house but because life is just sooo unfair you have to fix meals yourself and you can’s stay hungry you make this. Happy Cooking!!
