All those tomatoes... What's a girl to do?
I made Fresh Summer Salsa. Want the recipe? Okay, I know Pat and Sara don't want the recipe, but others might. ☺
Fresh Summer Salsa
4 large tomatoes, diced
1 large onion, finely chopped
1 green pepper, diced
1 red pepper, diced
1/2 cup green onions, chopped
2 jalapeno peppers, finely chopped
1/2 cup cilantro, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
juice of 1 lemon
1 tsp white vinegar
pinch of pepper
2 pinches of salt
Combine all ingredients. Serve with tortilla chips or (my favourite) pita chips.
Pita chips? Take a pita; cut it in eighths then peel the layers apart. Place on a cookie sheet, spray with cooking spray, and bake in 350 oven until slightly browned. Yummy - and much healthier than tortilla chips.
This salsa will keep in a sealed container in the fridge for a week, give or take a couple of days.
Sorry, no photo. I'm too lazy to trek downstairs with the camera right now.
Plus... I have other things on my mind. Such as...
After searching high and low in bookstores across the city and not being able to get my paws on a copy of Blogging for Bliss, I was prepared to order online. But now I don't have to.
The lovely Jeanne of A Bushel and a Peck picked my name ~ MY NAME ~ in her draw for the book. I'm so excited. Thank you, Jeanne. Thank you! I'm so looking forward to curling up with this book during my (ahem) spare time some weekend.
And speaking of spare time, it's becoming rare around here. I picked up the marking from my mailbox today and it is ~ no exaggeration ~ about 5 inches tall. The kids have only been in school for a few days. Little keeners. I wish they'd slow down. Arrggghhh. It's so busy at work!
Yeah... so why am I messing around on the computer...? Sigh.
(I won, I won!) ☺
