Can you ever have enough salsa?

Can you ever have enough salsa?

Why, no, no, you can’t ever have enough salsa. Well, ok, maybe if it isn’t fresh homemade salsa and comes out of the jar.

Warm weather begs for salsa to me. I love the brightness of salsa. The texture of salsa. The smell of salsa. I can make a meal out of fresh salsa and chips.

I love simple salsa. Just tomatoes, white onion, cilantro, chile pepper, garlic, salt, and lime juice chopped fine. Nothing fancy for me.

I’ve been using this recipe from Real Simple magazine for years.

The 2.5 cups get eaten pretty quickly so double the recipe or there will be sad faces.

Everyone in our house loves the salsa.

Summertime and the Grillin' is  Easy

Summertime and the Grillin' is Easy

Nothing better than grilling. I look forward to it when the days warm up so we can fire up the grill. Not ashamed to admit that, yes, we are fair weather grillers. I enjoy the ease of preparation mainly because I don’t actually use the grill, my husband does. Grilling imparts a wonderful favor on the food. And lastly, it keeps the house cool when the weather is hot.

We cook everything on the grill from hot dogs to pizza. Our dinner last night

was made 100% on the grill. The menu was a firm white fish, petite Yukon potatoes, and squash. Preparation was a breeze: olive oil, Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper, and herbs from the garden. After putting out the grill fire – that’s another story – our dinner was done in 20 minutes. Yum.

What’s your favorite thing to grill?
