Homemade Salsa

I got this recipe from a woman I used to work for in college.  She was making this salsa for her neighborhood block party and when I tried it I begged for the recipe.  I've been making this salsa and getting complemented on it ever since.  I've tweaked it a bit, but not much.  It's more of a pico de gallo style salsa, rather than a traditional cooked variety.

Combine in a food processor and pulse until desired consistency.

1/4 bunch cilantro
juice from one lime (fresh is always best)
1/2 tablespoon chili pepper seeds
1/2 onion (next time I'll try a red onion, I'll bet it's better than yellow)
1 glove garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
7 roma tomatoes (wait until they aren't fresh and in season-it's worth it)
1 can Rotel (or Mexican-style diced tomatoes with chiles)

Serve with tortilla chips and enjoy.

MamaLub's Dip

The HubLub is obsessed with his mother's dip recipe, for good reason, it's so yummy!  We recently made this to share with my folks when they were over for dinner recently and it was a big hit.  We serve it with carrots and ridged potato chips.  So addicting!

MamaLub's Dip:

16 oz sour cream
1/2 cup mayo
1 tablespoon onion flakes
1 tablespoon dill weed
1 teaspoon seasoned salt

BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger

Tonight dinner was simple, yet delicious. First, we fried up some bacon. Then, we took some of our organic ground beef from Costco and made patties with Worcestershire, seasoned salt, and pepper mixed in. We fried them up on the stove top with our grill pan and topped them with some colby jack cheese. We toasted up some Milton buns from Trader Joe's and stacked up our patties, bacon, shredded lettuce, beef steak tomato, and Bulls Eye BBQ sauce. We tossed up a quick salad with mixed greens, tomatoes, and croutons. It was a great Sunday meal.

We have some leftover apple pie and vanilla ice cream for dessert. I can't wait!
