The bears posed for their Christmas portraits tonight. Fa-la-la-la-la. La la. La. La.
And Matt and I had a fiesta!
when we were living in sin before we were married, in the wee beginnings of our first kitchen together, we created this onion-free salsa recipe. You see, I LOVE salsa, but I also hate onions (as you know!) and 99.9% of salsas have onions! So the best solution is to make your own. But sadly, we never remember to do that! But I’ve been having a craving for salsa, so make our own we did.
The recipe is just 2 chopped tomatoes, 1/2 of two giant bell peppers, a jalapeno (seeds optional!), about 1/3 cup cilantro, the juice of half a lime, 2 pinches kosher salt, a sprinkle of garlic powder, a sprinkle of chili powder and 30 minutes of refrigeration.
To celebrate the salsa, we made taco salads with black beans + corn (heated in the microwave with some cumin and more of the above seasonings), a bed of romaine, lots of fresh guacamole (made with the salsa) and some greek yogurt and hot sauce on top.
We both mmmed our way through this one!
A side of chips for dipping! Super important.
Tonight we watched the movie The Ugly Truth. Eh. It takes a REALLY clever comedy to get me to laugh. The movie was just OK. Many scenes were unbelievable and unrealistic, but there were a few good ones. I don’t know what was wrong with Colin!? I thought he was a hunk of a catch. I hate it when the character make dumb choices! Anyways….anyone seen any good movies lately?
A SUPER EXCITING post is supposed to go up tomorrow morning. You won’t wanna miss it!! I haven’t gotten a report on the final details, but check back first thing!
