Salsa, Chickens and PC's, Oh My!

I made some salsa today with my new handy-dandy food chopped! So much EASIER! Did the onions and jalapenos first, only 5 pulls. Then did the beautiful tomatoes from the garden, then the cilantro. Worked great, except for a few of the tiny round tomatoes didn't quite cut. I think it's the shape. Here's my recipe, you can modify for the heat and size of batch-

Nancy's Salsa-
tomatoes- 4 cups, chopped
cilantro- 1 bunch  chopped (I like a lot!)
purple onion-1 diced
jalapeno peppers- 2 or more diced
(with or without seeds, depending
on how much heat you like)
red wine vinegar- 1/4 cup or more (or fresh lime juice)
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt to taste



Chopper worked great!!!

All mixed up

Lunch! I ate 3 little bowls it was so good!


I came home today and 2 of the girls Ellie and Buffy were snuggling the tomotoes. It was cloudy and much cooler today. Nice for them!

I finally upgrade my PC! I added 2 1/2 gig chips to my hard drive. Sounds hard, but Crucial.com has excellent, easy directions for each model. For $50.00 it easily doubled the speed. It was getting so slow........

Salsa looks good. I like my hot. I need to check out that pie book. Yours looked so yummy. The girls look very happy to a part of your garden.

Your salsa looks wonderful. As for the pie book you blogged about, I ordered a copy from ebay yesterday. I can't wait to look through it. Our library did not have a copy of it.
