we have tried all kinds.
all different types of recipes.
but the best salsa i have ever tried is one i can have any time i want.
my honey's salsa is truly the greatest.
he starts with these key ingredients.
chops everything up (except the lime).
adds it together and blends it all smooth with the immersion blender.
he then adds lime, salt and fresh ground pepper to taste.
it is fresh,
filled with flavor and loaded with cilantro.
just the way i like it.
now i know you have had salsa before, but have you ever tried pho?
dave has made this recipe (minus the mint) for about two years now and
it is one of our go-to fall favorites.
perfect thing to make with your turkey left overs from the holidays because the flavors are so different.
my favorite part of this recipe is the star anise and of course the fresh cilantro.
you can never have too much of either in my opinion.
i prefer mine with the bean sprouts left out...but that's just me:)
dave adds a little "heat" to his
and of course uses chopsticks...he's cool like that!:)
i am so lucky to have a hubby who loves to cook
and when i say loves i mean loves
he is always treating us to delicious dinners, most of which are wasted on picky girls and mommies:)
if he could cook whatever he wanted, with no regard to who likes what and who won't eat this or that there's no telling what he would come up with...in other words, we stifle his creativity quite a bit:) but i think he'll keep us:)
thank you baby for all you do to feed us wonderful meals every single day
we love you!
the picky eaters in your life
i have kept gratitude journals on and off throughout the years and there is something powerful about looking for the good in each and every day, no matter how small.
dave and i even started a gratitude journal for each other before we got married.
every sunday we would write 5 things that we were thankful for from the week
we love reading back over that book.
we treasure it
we were pretty religious about keeping up with it...till kids came along and life got busy
which is really pretty sad.
every once in a while, one of us will pull it out and add an entry.
it's funny to see how the lists have changed over the years...they went from "thank you for the candlelit dinner" to "thank you for vacuuming and mopping and washing my car!!" ha ha
i thought since i try to blog most days, why not put my gratitudes right here
i've seen that a lot out in blog land and i like the idea
i am going to try and play along...not quite sure in what fashion...but i'm going to try
wanna join in?
have a happy day,
