Yesterday when I was at the store, I picked up some more tomatillos, a big poblano pepper, a white onion, some garlic and headed home to make another batch of salsa. It was hot out yesterday, and I didn’t want to turn the stove on, so I got out my skillet and added everything to the pan.
1/2 large white onion
4-5 cloves of garlic
1 Poblano pepper
juice of 1/2 lime
I just added a few teaspoons of Canola Oil, and threw everything into the skillet. I turned the heat on medium and just cooked the veggies on all sides for about 15 minutes. Some parts got a little browned, but I was OK with that!
I removed the stem from the Poblano pepper, and the paper from the garlic, but other than that, I threw everything into the blender.
I also added a few teaspoons of Tapatio picante sauce. And this is how it turned out:
Since it’s kind of warm, I put some into 2 bowls and stuck it in my freezer for about 15 minutes to cool it off.
It was so good! And the best part is it makes so much. I’m seriously thinking about canning some of this for gifts at Christmas!
So, are many of you into back to school stuff yet?? We went shoe shopping yesterday and right now Payless Shoe’s has buy one get one pair half price, AND, I went on line and found a coupon for an additional 20% off. I wasn’t sure if it would work, it just had a coupon code, but the man at the register punched those numbers in, and I saved $15.00!!
Click here to print out the coupon code I used, one is good until 8/9 and the other one is good until 8/31!
So check out the shoes my kids picked. My oldest son is going to be a Freshman in high school, my middle son is going into 7th grade and my daughter is going into 3rd grade. It’s going to be a crazy year with 3 kids in 3 different schools, we’ll see if I survive!
I should be lucky I have a few more weeks before school starts. 67 Chicago Public Schools have adopted a YEAR ROUND school and they go back to school on Monday!
Year round students get 6 weeks off during summer, 2 weeks off at Christmas and 2 weeks off during Spring break. It’s all in an effort to keep kids off the streets and keep them safer. Which I am all for that! Some areas in Chicago are pretty rough and dangerous!
If you have kids, are you excited about school starting again soon?
