Salsa MaMA kAriE style

1 jalapeno pepper (seeded and deviened if you want mild salsa)

1 onion

handful of cilantro (stemmed)

2-3 large tomatoes

2 T. tomato paste

1 T. fresh lime juice (or more, to taste)

1 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. garlic powder

Chop all ingredients. You can use a salsa maker or a food processor even a blender will work but salsa won't be very chunky. Taste and then re-season to taste. Add more peppers for hotter salsa. If you don't like the fresh salsa taste make with drained canned tomatoes.

Let's Get Together (ya...ya...ya)

Ok...I really think this could be awesome if we all put a little dedication into this. So here is my idea...we got those recipe books from the Ashby Reunion on Saturday, but now I say we make our own...Ludwig style (aka...FREE!).

I want you all to subscribe to this blog and as you come across old recipes, find new ones or remember favorites, post them to the blog. You can ad pics and/or a story/memories and/or ratings or commentary. Then we can lable the posts under food catagories, like poultry, breads, desserts, etc. If somebody else has a thought, memory or alteration of the recipe they can share it in the comments section.

I know I don't really cook much, but I really want to get better and better at it and I don't want any of the recipes that are so dear to me and our family to fall through the cracks. I also think this will be a great way to make the recipes come alive as we can all share about different foods in one place and can continue adding to it for years to come.

If you have others (like cousins or other relatives) you want to share recipes with us, invite them to contribute!

Now, we have all talked about getting our favorite recipes together like a million we have a way that we can all access and we can do it at our own pace.
