Since I have a new sewing room downstairs, I no longer need to spread out my sewing projects on the kitchen table It was time to make a table runner for the kitchen. My kitchen is blue and white so this is the quick and easy runner that I came up with. It was fun to use up some of my small scraps!
My brother's garden is in full swing. It has been so nice to go and get all the tomatoes, squash and cucumbers that I want and he's so good to share with me. I have been eating at least one tomato sandwich each day. I am also including a delish recipe that my friend, Alexis gave me for fresh salsa.
1 (28oz.) can tomatoes with juice
2 (10 oz.) cans Rotel (diced tomatoes and green chilies)
¼ cup chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1 whole jalapeno, quartered and sliced thin
¼ tsp. sugar
¼ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. ground cumin
½ cup cilantro (or more to taste)
the juice of half a lime
Note: This is a very large batch. Recommend using a 12 cup food processor, or you can process the ingredients in batches and then mix everything together in a large bowl.
Combine tomatoes, Rotel, onion, jalapeno, garlic, sugar, salt, cumin, lime juice and cilantro in a blender or food processor. Pulse until you get the salsa to the consistency you’d like—I do about 10 to 15 pulses. Test seasonings with a tortilla chip and adjust as needed.
Refrigerate salsa for at least an hour. Serve with tortilla chips or cheese nachos.
I enjoyed reading this Proper Romance book by Nancy Campbell Allen.
