Today Ms. Debbie called the office and asked if I liked fresh tomatoes, because Mr. Bobby had brought home way too many from work and she needed to get rid of them. I told her I'd gladly take some. They were very ripe so I'd need to use them right away, so I decided to make salsa, something I've never done before. Before leaving the office I searched allrecipes.com for salsa recipes, made a shopping list, and then headed to Kroger. Here's how it turned out...
4 large tomatoes, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 jalapeno pepper, minced
1 tomatillo, chopped
salt to taste
Mix all ingredients, using only half of the jalapeno. Taste, and if you want more kick, add the rest of the jalapeno.
*I forget to pick up the cilantro and they didn't have tomatillos, so my version is lacking these ingredients.
|Pretty little jalapenos!|
|These Tostitos multigrain chips are sooo good!|
Overall, it turned out ok. It wasn't bad, but it could have really used the missing ingredients. And I made all of this wearing my cute and comfy shoes from Jessica's wedding, which I wore today. I'm so glad to be getting use out of them other than just one day!
