If you know me well, you know I love salsa. And if you know me really well, you probably have "my" (actually J's mom's) fabulous salsa recipe. Came across this one the other day and it is also fab. Similar to the other, but maybe just a little better? Definitely tastes like Chili's- my favorite salsa. ever. Try it. You'll love it.
1 (14 1/2 oz.) can tomatoes and green chilies
1 (14 1/2 oz.) can whole canned tomatoes (plus the juice)
4 teaspoons jalapenos (canned, diced, not pickled)
1/4 cup yellow onion (diced)
1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon sugar
and this is not on the recipe but we add:cilantro to taste
1. In food processor place jalapenos (optional) and onion and process for just a few seconds.
2. Add both cans of tomatoes, salt, sugar, cumin,cilantro and lime juice.
3. Process all ingredients until well blended but do not puree.
4. Place in covered container and chill.
5. Serve with your favorite tortilla chips!

We have the Sea World annual pass, and this trip we fed the dolphins for the first time. Oh my goodness is it amazing! They come right up to you and you pet them and feed them. Ella absolutely loved it, and we abosultely loved watching her enjoy herself. A side note, as we were finished and exiting the exhibit Ella loudly says, "Can we go see Shamu now?!" Done with the dolphins, on to the next thing!

I feel a theme beginning to recur. Sassy. But not sassy in a bad way, a good way. To me sassy is full of personality. Animated. Even dramatic. And maybe a little bit naughty. That is our girl. And I love her. P.S. In case you didn't notice, this is a totally fake smile, in place of a requested real one.
