Pico De Gallo

Whew - I've had a string of cooking flops lately.  Hate it when I choose a run similar that.  I've been trying out about novel recipes, making a twosome of things from my "30 for 2012 Project" list, together with working on a novel frosting.  Well, afterward iii runs at the novel frosting, I don't choose it nailed nevertheless (but I'm close!).   Made a terrible salad for my family's Easter get-together.  Had ii disappointments from my "Project" list.

I felt the demand to have a success.  So I decided to convey you lot i of my all-time, pretty-much-fool-proof favorites ... pico de gallo (aka - salsa fresca).  Mark together with I dearest this stuff.  We swallow it the traditional means with tortilla chips, right away from a spoon, spooned over Mexican dishes, or over chocolate-brown rice equally a meatless primary dish.  And I swear Mark tin ship away swallow a quart of it inwards a unmarried sitting.

We dearest it made with Roma tomatoes ...

... together with LOTS of cilantro together with fresh lime.  Oh, together with don't forget the jalapenos!  Mark tin ship away never larn plenty jalapenos.

Mark loves jalapenos hence much, nosotros ... together with past times 'we', I hateful Mark ... choose a joke almost them now.  Whenever I ready something Mark says, "It needs to a greater extent than jalapeno."  Give him pico de gallo? ... "Needs to a greater extent than jalapeno."  Give him spaghetti? ... "Needs to a greater extent than jalapeno."  H5N1 brownie?  ... "Needs to a greater extent than jalapeno."  You larn the point. 

Well, final night, I genuinely came upward with something for which he DID NOT country "Needs to a greater extent than jalapeno."  Yay!  You'll choose to facial expression to encounter what it was ... I'll post service it soon.  Until then, bask about pico de gallo.  You determine if it needs to a greater extent than jalapeno!
