I decided it was my turn. I decided that if the kids were going to have a new year, so was I. So here I am. A new look. My back to school hair cut. For so long I have wanted a different look for my blog. Something that was just me. I know, the words are mine and the pictures are mine and that was as far as it went. Now I have something with a little more pizazz and a little more pop and something I feel is just more…..me. Let me know what you think about the new look too! I have installed a bar at the bottom of the blog, which will help me share and have you share.
Here is a quick, colorful way to start your week off. Using the abundance of tomatoes you have create a quick salsa! I had some beautiful basil (grown by my brother-in-law) and some gorgeous heirloom tomatoes. I think this is the perfect recipe to show off the new look. You can call it a comeback.
Golden Italian Salsa
1/2 pound tomatoes, diced. If using big tomatoes, try to get some of the seeds out
1 small onion, diced
3 small jalapenos, minced. I took the seeds out, but if you want the extra heat go ahead and leave them in.
2 cloves of garlic, minced
A huge handful of fresh basil, cut into ribbons
A couple glugs of extra virgin olive oil
A couple glugs of red wine vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste.
Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl and refrigerate for one hour, until the flavors develop. This salsa is only good for the day you made it. Don’t worry, you’ll eat it up!
A New Haircut!
