Hey guys! Happy Friday to ya! Am I ever happy for this week to be over with! It's just been quite hellish, to tell you the truth. And after my shift tomorrow morning, I'll have Sunday and Monday off, so I'm definitely looking forward to some rest!
On a side note - sorry if any of you tried to visit the blog the past day or so - Blogger was apparently working out some kinks and removed Wednesday's & Thursday's post amidst all the craziness! They're back now though, so all is (seemingly) back to normal!
Anyway, no big plans for the weekend - just relaxing! How about you guys?
I know I'll be finishing off this salsa, because it was super delicious! Next time, I'll probably make my own tortilla chips, though - has anyone noticed that store-bought tortilla chips just keep getting saltier and saltier? I felt like I was eating a salt lick by eating the ones pictures with the salsa!
28 oz. can whole tomatoes, with juice
1-2 jalapeno peppers (depending on how spicy you want it! - I only removed half of the seeds, I live on the edge!)
1/2 small onion
small handful cilantro
salt and pepper, to taste
In the bowl of a food processor, combine tomatoes, jalapeno peppers, onion, and cilantro. Puree until smooth (or keep it chunky - it's your salsa, get it to your liking!). Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Bam! You've got yourself salsa in about 10 minutes. Seriously, I'll be eating salsa with everything now that the weather is warm and sunny! It's just one of those "sunshine" foods, don't you think? And of course, you could always use fresh tomatoes - but it's still a little too early for my garden beauties, and I just had a can in the pantry, so I said why not?
What's your favorite way to make salsa?
Anyway, sorry for the short and simple posts this week! I'm still working on getting the congestion out of my head from being sick and it's just easier to do simple things right now! So I promise I'll be back Monday with some awesome stuff (esp. Derby Pie Fudge!!)
Have a great weekend guys!
