Ok so I had planned on blogging about what I made for dinner, but it wasn't all that good, and I had 3 different dinners tonight anyway, so I just made some salsa to blog about instead. So for my dinner, (first dinner) I made potatoes with a cheese and tomato sauce. I found the recipe here. I did not think that the recipe was very good, but with a few changes it may have been alright. I would have most definately added some garlic, and also probably added some serranos. And maybe added some spiced shredded chicken and served it over rice if I wanted some meat in there. So...I still had an overabundance of blackberries and peaches lying around, and decided to make a blackberry and peach salsa. Now, I looked at a few different blackberry peach recipes-and they all had weird random stuff in them...so I mixed/matched and such. One of the ingredients was a red bell pepper. I did not have one, so I used a purple one.
2 Large peaches, sliced and diced (peeled if you like)
1 1/2 cups fresh (or frozen, thawed) blackberries
1/2 large sweet bell pepper (red, orange, or purple), diced
1 shallot, diced
2 serrano (or jalapeno) peppers, diced
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
1 teaspoon ground cumin
6 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice (about 3 big limes)
1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1/4 cup honey
combine everything, adding the blackberries last. This is what you get!
Ok so after that I continued on and made yet another salsa...more traditional this time.
2-3 medium sized tomatoes, diced
1/2 white onion, diced
1 garlic cloved, minced
2 serrano peppers, diced
1/2 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped
1 lime, juiced
1 teaspoon vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
a few pinches of salt
combine all together and mix!
Sorry this post is forever long. Going to go do some yoga now : )
