Tomatillo Salsa

Do you like chips and dip?  

What kind of chips?  

What Kind of salsa?

A favorite around here is Guacamole but pico de gallo comes a pretty good second, especially if it's made by me!  My daughter brought this delectable dish to our attention several years ago and it's quite easy to make.  A bunch of Roma tomatoes, red onion, jalepeno pepper, lime juice and a dash or two of chipotle pepper sauce.  I like mine with cilantro, Jim does not.. Just chop all the tomatoes, onion and pepper as big or as small as you like.  Enjoy

I also like a good tomatillo salsa.  But I don't make it, I buy it.  Salsa Verde is made by everyone!  Just do a search and the recipes will pop up....here are a couple:

Our day started early with a visit to see Jim's dermatologist.  It was a follow up for his pre cancerous skin lesions....Whew that's a mouthful.  Anyway the cream medicine he used cleared up all that was targeted.  She froze a couple spot on his head which look painful and will take a few days to heal up.  He also has to go back for a biopsy on a mole.

Then it was off to the mall for a brisk walk.  The heat is back and it was already warming up to the 90 it reached today.  

After our stroll we headed to Tony Roma's for lunch.  We left stuffed!  We each had soup, salad and half sandwich and a draft beer.  The beers were some we'd never had before, mine was good but nothing I need to repeat.  Jim had a porter that he enjoyed.

After lunch we headed to the McAllen Library on Nolana that used to be a Walmart!  Wonderful use of the building.  I liked the way it was set up with both English and Spanish sections.  Of course it has books but also magazines, videos etc.  Media Rooms and places for folks to sit and read, study rooms and internet.

Back home we changed into comfy clothes and relaxed a bit.  Around 1600 we headed to a party with a bunch of our friends and some strangers!  We had a good time and though neither of us was very hungry Jim managed to try quite a few tasty dishes and I had some chips...with and without salsa.  Jim brought some wine but I had water.  Though I did manage to down a few tequila shots.

CBS is our choice for TV viewing on Tuesday.  NCIS, Bull and NCIS: New Orleans
