Julie & Julia Self-Challenge - Week 7

This week's recipe is Tomato and Garlic Salsa.  I thought it was odd that the recipe called for all fresh ingredients except for the tomatoes for which it specially called for canned tomatoes... However, the "recipe-writer" knows her stuff as this was hands down the second best salsa I'd ever had.   (The very best is the mango salsa at the restaurant Ethos Vegan Kitchen.)
 
 


Switching gears, yesterday was the "Making Strides Against Breast Cancer" walk.  Over 40,000 people participated in Orlando. Seeing all that pink was a beautiful sight!
 
Speaking of beautiful sights, here is Lake Eola in downtown Orlando Saturday morning and some of the walkers:





 
Tomorrow's Monday, so I wish you all a happy new week!

  1. My husband is a salsa addict. He seriously gets withdrawal symptoms if he doesn't get enough of that stuff in a week. LOL!

  2. nothing compares to fresh salsa, it is just so much fresher and tangy-er. I'm glad you had such great weather for your event this weekend.

    1. Thank you! The turn out was amazing. I don't know how much money was made, but it had to be well into the six figures :-)

  3. I LOVE salsa, and cilantro is so easy to grow - but can't get the seeds over here, and the only time I grew it, I didn't save any seeds from the pods!

    1. I have plenty left over as the only fresh at the market was in large bundles. I wish I could ship it to you!
