Mango Basil Stir Fry

I have something that I want to add to my life bucket list.

Now, you all have seen my food bucket list, but I also have a life bucket list. There are some normal things on it, like go to Hollywood and own a dog, and some not so normal things, like try all the Cheesecake Factory cheesecake flavors and write a manifesto.

However, I have an addition. Make one of my Pinterest outfits come to life. I feel like everyone with a Pinterest account has this dream. Or, if they don’t, they do now.

I went out last night with a few friends, and wanted to reach into my computer and pull out one of those outfits. And then I thought, “Why don’t I make that happen?” I’ll just choose one and over the course of time, bring it to life.

Thanks, Pinterest. You rock.

Pinterest also gives me inspiration for food. While this stir fry was not inspired by Pinterest, it is still pretty awesome. These flavors scream summahtime.
