I love a good party and normally I'm on time. So does fashionably late count?
Welcome to my blog! Come in and stay a while. mostly i talk about my kids and my crafts. Occasionally I'll talk about other things..
I love coffee and if i meet you in person you're going to bet I brew a pot and sit there talking your ear off. Something about needing adult conversation. LOL
Go on over to 5 Minutes for Mom and get their invitation, you still have a few hours. if you're a night owl like me that is.
I'm sitting here racking my brain trying to figure out what recipe to share with Ya'll and for the life of me i can't even bring one to mind... at least not one I've not shared before.. sigh.
it's a party though so I'll share with you my salsa/pico recipe off the top of my head.
Ok so it's all about how you feel.
Allena's Make It (up as you go) Salsa.
take 2 or 3 good sized tomatoes
2 jalapeno peppers and one habenero (i don't know how to spell it, the really hot small ones) pepper and maybe a yellow banana pepper. depending on how HOT you want this salsa/pico
one or two onions. depending on the size.
you'll also need a lime and some cilantro fresh is always best but dry works too.
oh and some salt and pepper.
so dice and chop up those tomatoes and put them in the bowl. Sometimes I'll blanch and peel the tomatoes but if I'm in a hurry or wanting a real fresh taste I won't. (what ever bowl you plan on serving this salsa in I'm all about less is best with dishes)
chop up the onion ( i use my PC food chopper) add it to the bowl.
now is when we get serious take your peppers and cut them in half and seed them. (this means removing the seeds, i know you know that but what about the others?)
Now chop and dice these peppers very small. And while you're doing this don't touch your eyes or nose b/c the juices will burn them and you'll regret it! Now add them to the bowl.
Stir it up add some salt and pepper to taste. Cut your lime in half and juice half of it over your mixture. Half should be good but if you want to add the rest. chop up some cilantro or measure out some from your spice rack. mix up your salsa and let it set in the fridge for an hour or so.
then take it out and enjoy with chips or pretzels. it should stay good in the fridge for 2 days or so.
Hint: If you mix some with an egg and cook it up in the skillet and then wrap it up in a tortilla it makes a really YUMMY breakfast!
Anyways Enjoy! i hope you have a wonderful rest of the PARTY!
