For your viewing pleasure, a few photos I snapped of my handsome little guy at church yesterday. Isn't he something? (There's no chance I'm a little biased, is there?)

And, for your tasting pleasure (or, simply for your viewing pleasure again if you aren't interested in making this), one of the favorite recipes I inherited when I married Ryan.

His Mama (my mother-in-law) makes THE BEST salsa and this is her recipe. I chopped some up for Ry this afternoon. I swear it disappears faster than I can make it!

Bev's Delicioso Salsa
12 Roma tomatoes
1/2 C fresh cilantro
1 onion
5 drops tobasco
1 T vinegar
juice of 1/2 lemon
grated lemon rind
1/2-1T garlic salt
1/2 jalapeno pepper
1/4 t cumin

Fine chop all ingredients and combine.
(I'll confess that I used a Vidalia Chop Wizard - a gift from my MIL - and that I am not THAT good at chopping!)

Happy Monday!!

I make pico de gallo all the time and I have never thought to add vinegar to it! I will have to try her recipe and see how it compares!

Oliver is such a cutie!

He is too cute :-)

Thank you for the salsa recipe!! I've been looking for a similar one for ages, except it had black beans and canned corn. Now if only I can find the cumin and cilantro in the spice cabinet :o)

Oliver is so cute and the salsa looks great!! You should consider joining me on my blog for Friday Foodie to share some of your favorite recipes!

Lisa said...

Salsa looks amazing! Ilove salsa and make it every other week in our home as a staple :) Not to mention how adorable is your little boy in those pics :)

Christine said...

I'm just glad that recipe didn't call for coriander seeds. Ahem.

(I promise I am learning. I am growing cilantro out back, and I even know that it's the same thing as coriander!)

Also, glad to see you achieved the blurry background. I may have to have you show me when we're in TN. Every instruction I've seen online (MckMama, Pioneer Woman, etc.) deals with Canons, and I have trouble locating the aperture and what not on the Fuji. I know our cameras are cousins, so perhaps you can help. Or maybe I can just sit around and let you take the pictures. Either is fine with me.

Love him so much! His teefs look great!
