Salsa Time!

Pico de Gallo


You might be looking at this pic and thinking, "Where's the cilantro?"

After I took the pic, I realized I forgot the cilantro, not to worry though, it has been remedied.

This recipe made a big batch of fresh salsa. You can adjust the ingredients if you like.

Pico de Gallo

Ingredients: 
8 tomatoes (fresh summer tomatoes are the best)
2 jalapenos (seeded if you don't like it HOT!)
3/4 of a red onion
2 tablespoons of cilantro, chopped
1 lime, juiced
salt to taste

Preparation:
Dice everything in a small dice. Add all diced vegetables together. Add half of lime juice and a little salt. Taste it! Add more juice and salt if desired.

Happy 4th of July


This tablescape features a vintage tablecloth with a bold blue and white floral.


The red and blue glasses came from Dollar General. They are similar to an old Avon pattern of glassware.


I doubled the napkins, a white on the inside and a red on the outside. I have seen Pottery Barn do this, and I love it.


I mixed vintage Fiesta with Post-86 Fiesta. The cobalt cake server is one of my favorite vintage pieces.



Yes, Homer Laughlin made a 4th of July pattern. I have 4 cups and saucers of this pattern.


Fiesta vintage cobalt sugar bowl and vintage ivory creamer.


HLC made George and Martha mugs for the World's Fair. These are small, a mere two inches. I found an additional mug (Andrew Jackson) that I don't think is HLC.



Hey Martha!

 

The flatware came from Tuesday Morning.
