Alright this post isn’t like my last, about our silly cabin fever, but it is about what I do when it sets in for me. I cook! Today I finally made the salsa I have been itching to make since Saturday. It consisted of tomatoes, jalapeño, whole garlic, chopped onion and dried cilantro. I drizzled them with olive oil and roasted them all, except the cilantro, in the broiler. I cored the tomatoes and then removed the skin from the tomatoes and jalapeño and garlic I tossed all the ingredients into the food processor for a quick chop and voila! Roasted salsa! Turned out delish!
Next up I am going to make some vegetable stock. It seems pretty simple and I love love love that it uses veggie scraps, or veggies that aren’t quite bad, but may be soon. Its a good way to not let anything in the fridge go to waste! Also, veggie stock is a great addition to soups or stews instead of water and also grains or pasta are much more flavorful when cooked in a stock such as this!
Lastly, I need to cook up some fresh yummy yams a friend gave to me. I am debating on just what I want to do with them. Probably just peel cut and boil in water with a little sugar. My kids’ fave!

Take care and always try to make something new and different! I always do!
