First Day Of School

The kids went back to school today. Brooke started 9th grade at Parkersburg High School. We live about 10 mins away at the most, but it took us a half hour with traffic! YIKES! Hoping it was just first day traffic and things will settle down a little!
Nic is now in 4th grade at Worthington. He was so excited that he got the teacher he wanted!
Tyler is now the big man on campus at Worthington. He is in 5th grade this year! He is very happy with his teacher too!
They all had a great first day! After school we went to Sonic to celebrate the first day of school!

Fresh Tomato Salsa Recipe

It only took an hour and a half to uncover this recipe! So here it is Kevin and Lawanda!:) This is the recipe that I use for Fresh Salsa. Christina and I are canning salsa tonight and trying a new method, I will post our completed canning recipe as soon as we get it figured out after our experiment tonight! We just used this recipe below before but it turns out runny because you have to cook it to can it. So hopefully this new way will be just as yummy and thick as the fresh!! fingers crossed!

This recipe is for one cup of fresh just adapt it to the amount of tomatoes you have!

1 large ripe tomato, cored & peeled
1 green tomato
1 clove of garlic
4 sprigs of cilantro, leaves only
1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lime juice
hot pepper sauce to taste

Place the tomato, onion, cilantro and lime juice in food processor. Process 15-20 seconds, or until chopped fine. Season with salt and hot pepper sauce to taste.
