Drool warning (especially for Jeanne!)

Our grocery store is having their "Italian Days" sale this week, so I stocked up on fresh plum tomatoes and made Sue's World Famous Salsa. I made it on Friday because it has to sit for a couple of days to really get "good!" I just popped the top to take the picture and the garlic-y, lime-y, cilantro-y smell coming out of the bowl was heavenly! I don't have a recipe, per say, but I'll share best I can. Adjust the amounts to your own liking. Plum tomatoes, red onion, garlic, fresh squeezed lime juice, jalepeno peppers, fresh chopped cilantro (no stems) salt, pepper, sugar. For something different this time, I roasted the jalepenos before I chopped them. I don't like my salsa hot, so I de-seed and de-vein the peppers. If you like more heat, leave them in. I even did a batch one time for a friend that likes his blistering hot and I used scotch bonnet peppers in his. Frito Hint of Lime Tostitos are the bomb with this salsa!

I also found a new food blog the other day. Jennie had a recipe for slow roasted tomato soup that sounded easy and good. I made her soup yesterday and that and grilled cheese sandwiches was our dinner last night. The soup was really easy and really good. She's got a couple more recipes on her blog I'll be trying soon.
