Stephanie’s Salsa

There’s one food that we all agree on in our house – Mexican!!! Even the fussiest of eaters in our house asks me “Can we do Taco Tuesday!?”…even if it’s Friday. Whether your fav is tacos, quelsedilla, nachos or a big fat burrito, salsa is a must! In a pinch, I’ll definitely use a jarred salsa, but whenever I can, I’ll whip up a batch of this recipe (thanks to my sweet friend, Stephanie, who passed it on to me). The hubs has repeatedly asked for this salsa to snack on, and I’m more than willing to indulge him, since it’s as healthy as can be (the little dudes like it too – and it’s all veggies)! It comes as a close runner up to my Guacamole recipe, which is truly his all time favorite. If you have time to do both, you’ll be doing Mexican right – fresh and full of flavor!

6 roma tomatoes, diced
1 small can crushed tomatoes (15 oz)
1 green pepper, diced
1 red pepper, diced
1 yellow pepper, diced
1 jalepeno, seeded and diced
1 C onion, diced
1 tbsp black pepper
1 tbsp oregano
1 tsp salt
3/4 C olive oil
1/2 tsp balsamic vinegar
1/4 C lime juice (2 limes)
1/4 C lemon juice (1 lg juicy lemon)
1 tbsp brown sugar
1/2 C cilantro, chopped
3 garlic cloves, crushed

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl, and you’re done!

Lessons I Learned From My Mom Fails

“Failure is success in progress” – Albert Einstein Mom guilt is a legit thing – even when you’re doing everything right. I can literally feel guilty for both letting my children play outside in the cold (because, I’d be the worst mother ever for making them shiver) and making them stay
