Day nine is 9 ladies dancing, what are they dancing do you think?
The answer to that question is easy in our house – they are dancing the salsa! Arriba!
Kicked up Salsa
Makes 2 cups
1 jalapeño pepper
1 8-oz bottle mild taco sauce
3 tablespoons lime juice
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro (coriander)
1/2 cup diced tomato
1/2 cup diced onion
Seed and finely chop the jalapeño pepper. In a medium bowl, combine jalapeño pepper, taco sauce, lime juice, cilantro, tomato and onion. (I split the salsa in half and added the jalapeño to one part as the girls won’t eat spicy food.)
That has got to be one of the easiest recipes out there! It was pretty good too. Although a little to limey for Andy’s tastes. We ate it with homemade tacos, always a favorite.
The Christmas spirit has been knocked a little in our house…we are still doing all the things we normally do; on Saturday the girls got their toenails painted…Jojo had snowmen on hers and Imogen had Christmas trees, yesterday they went to the first ever children’s neighborhood cookie exchange and ended the evening with carol singing around a fire in a neighbor’s back yard.
BUT, the snow has meant that Granddad and Grandma’s flight has been cancelled from the UK. Grandma couldn’t talk on the phone as she was crying, Imogen went to school with red eyes..no one is feeling it this morning, no one.
Niamhy’s Christmas concert will be less exciting for her without Grandparents cheering her on, and as for the Coffee with Grandparents event on Wednesday morning – it’s gonna be lame for her with parents instead.
