So we were in Hawaii last week. It was so nice to be warm. One of the fun things we heard about there was they have mango bread. I didn't have any there but as excited about making some when I got home. This is what I came up with. It is delicious and moist and you will love it. The mango is a wonderful addition to the bread. The texture of this bread was wonderful. Read here about some of the benefits of eating mangoes. This bread would be a great addition to your breakfast or anytime of the day. Have a wonderful Valentine's weekend! Tell those you love that you love them. :)
Also want to mention it is Britney's 30th birthday today. She is my partner on this blog and also my beautiful oldest daughter that has brought so much joy into my life as well as my husbands. It was so wonderful to have her on Valentines. I will never forget the first time of holding her. My dream of being a mother had come true. She had big beautiful eyes that were ready to see the world as soon as she came out. She is now a mother too. She has brought 3 beautiful little grandsons into our lives. Life is sweet. I am so glad to be her Mom and have her as a friend too. I love you Britney!
