Well, it's about that time of year again. The time when the kiddos head back to school and the nights are getting cooler. We have been enjoying the last of our bountiful tomato crop. I don't think I have ever eaten so much salsa in my life! I have posted some photos of the boys today. They are each such a blessing, and I am going to miss them filling the house with "boy noise" when the school bell rings. (can you tell I am emotional about it right now?) Andrew is heading off to his first year of High School and Spencer and Gannon will start the 5th grade this year. My little Nick is not so little and is beginning first grade... which means I will be all alone every day! Boo Hoo!!!! I am looking forward to planting some fall mums and putting out some fall decor as I do every year, but I think I am going to have a tough time without someone home during the day to keep me busy in my "Mom" role. On the other hand, the evenings will be filled with High School Football, Homework, Homework and more Homework along with guitar, swimming, etc. etc. I hope you all are healthy and happy and I will try to update more often. Take care everyone!
- 4 freshly chopped tomatos
- handful of chopped cilantro
- 3 T. chopped green pepper
- 2 or 3 jalapeno peppers (to taste) chopped
- 3t. freshly squeezed lime juice
- pinch of coarse ground salt
- dash of black pepper
- 1/2t. garlic powder
- 1/2 t. onion salt
- 1/2 T. sugar
* Put all ingredients in blender or food processor and "whiz" for a couple of seconds until you get desired consistancy. We like it really blended, or you can leave it chunky. It is simply soooo good!
Alright, which one of you gals left this chair on my front steps? I found this sitting outside of my door the other night! Well, whoever it was, I love it! I adore antique/old child size chairs and have some fun plans for this! When you are ready to fess up, come over for a cup of tea and I'll tell you my ideas. Thank you!!!
