Yesterday I went to the farmers market and bought the stuff I needed to make salsa.  It took all day to make just 17 pint jars it.  (I did take a break to go to church with my granddaughter last night)  I took lots of pictures and posted them at my photo blog... go over and have a look if  you have time.  

On Friday night as I was considering spending my weekend working on this,  I decided to call my son to see if he likes this enough.  He is the one who eats it - every Sunday when he comes over for dinner- he waits for dinner by eating tortilla chips and his mother's home made salsa.  When I asked him if he liked it on Friday he was incredulous.  He said "do I eat every jar of it every year?"  I said "yes," he said "there's your answer."  

Today I slept until 8:30, and I have just done my prayer, and blogging, and will go for a run.  Then back to the market for another half bushel of tomatoes.  I have enough chiles to keep going, but not enough tomatoes.  I will spend today working in my kitchen.

Which I have to say is one of my favorite ways of spending a day.  

Let's all say a prayer for the safety of those in the path of Hurricane Gustov.

It's so great when we have someone who really loves one of our dishes. It makes the work preparing it much more enjoyable.
Enjoy your day SweetSalsaSue

MC (and others) to whom I apologize for such 'Blongs'...maybe when I've been posting for a few years, those Blongs will be more succinct? Then I can call them 'Blogs' again!

I certainly HOPE so!

Have a GREAT Sunday, while we bike around the storms and some street flooding.

I'm in awe of someone who cooks & enjoys it. It seems very relaxing for you. Nice.
