Day 39 - Salsa

Cookbook - Jamie's Food Revolution

Today was pretty good. To top it off, I made some super good salsa. Salsa is so easy to make. Extremely. It's probably the easiest thing we've ever made. And that's really saying something because we've made a lot of easy things.

All you do is chop together a clove of garlic, some green onion, tomatoes, cilantro, and chile (which we didn't use). Do this really finely, and I'm getting really good at chopping things finely, in my opinion.

I think my chopping skills are getting better. I'm quite happy about that because that's cool because now I can become a better chef.

Put it into a bowl after it's all finely chopped together. Put in some salt and pepper, and mix it. Squeeze in some lime. And then you're done.

We made some really good tacos tonight and my mom's really good rice recipe. It's SO good that Jamie Oliver should add it in his next book. The rice is good because it's made with love...and chicken broth. And it tastes really good. Tomatoey.

The tacos have potatoes and carrots and ground beef all cooked together.

Bam! You have a super good meal. One of my absolute favorites.



  1. Oh. My! I'd love to have eaten dinner with you tonight.

  2. That looks fantastic! I used to live in Dallas and boy do I miss the salsa.

    Unfortunately I am allergic to tomatoes but for some reason I can tolerate small amounts of processed ones. Rotel canned tomatoes with chilis makes good salsa. I use the same ingredients but add fresh lime juice.

  3. you guys are awesome!

  4. Yipppee on improved chopping skills! Practic makes perfect ... remember Julia in Julie and Julie with the onions? And, hooray for super easy ... love that! What a meal you guys had ... delish.


  5. Kids haven't seen Julie and Julia, but I read the book and liked it. These kids are getting SO good, and so fast!!!

  6. Allergic to tomatoes, Megan?! It's hard to make adjustments. The celiac thing is definitely difficult. We feel you!
