I tried an excellent Salsa Verde recipe from Simply Recipes. The salsa was a cinch to make. I broiled the tomatillos in my toaster oven and then you add everything to the food processor. I’d definitely make this recipe again. It was super tasty with chips and also equally delicious inside our black bean and rice burritos.
I should also add that the recipe made more than what is pictured. I usually portion food out for other meals when I’m done making it. I set aside some salsa verde for our lunches in Tupperware containers (which don’t leak like other containers do).
I found a great vase at the thrift store for $4. It’s hard to judge the scale of the vase from the picture but the vase is 15″ tall. It’s just another way to liven up the rental and these drab beige walls.
I stopped by the community garden over the weekend. They have all the plots staked out and there are over 100 plots! We’re still deciding on what to grow and figuring out the best garden configuration. In our previous garden, we grew several varieties of tomatoes, hot peppers, colored peppers, pickling cucumbers, zucchini and yellow squash, beans, okra, lettuce, various herbs (cilantro, basil, etc…) and radishes. Speaking of radishes, last year we grew Fire and Ice Radishes for the first time and I definitely want to grow them again. They were so good!!! Hardly any made it into salads because we ate them all as snacks. LOL
Here’s a view of some of the community garden plots. Each plot is 20′ x 20′. The pink flags you can see show the plot number and are located in the middle of each plot.
