Salsa~Our new favorite thing!

I got this recipe from a freind from church. It is a wonderful recipe. I substituted tomatillos for tomatoes the other day and I think it is even better!

COOKED SALSA By: Etel Ghoreishi
In a 1 quart sauce pan combine:
2 cups water
1/2 teaspoon salt – may add more to taste
Dash pepper
Heat: Medium to high heat

Add to above ingredients:
3 tomatoes
1 small white/yellow onion – cut in half
1 garlic clove
2 Serrano peppers

Boil until tomatoes and onion are thoroughly cooked.
When done, spoon out ingredients and place in a blender. Blend in Chop setting.
Heat 3 tbsp. olive or vegetable oil in same saucepan. Carefully, add blended sauce, and cook for 2 minutes.
You may store cooked salsa in the fridge for up to one week! Or, freeze.

Menu Plan Monday

We didn't get to all of the meals I had planned last week! I ran away with the kids to the coast to escape the heat. We had a great time camping out in La Push, we even got rained on over there. I was wonderful to cool down and to spend time exploring over there. We can't wait to go back!

I am trying to clean out the fridge and freezer this week before we leave for another trip next week.
