aka See? Sometimes I cook!
Justin has been lamenting the inferior quality of store-bought salsa. I came across this recipe for Restaurant-Style Salsa from The Pioneer Woman and figured it was worth a try. It's delicious. Definitely the best salsa I've made (wait...have I made salsa before?). Possibly the best I've eated. It's definitely spicy enough to make your nose run a little. If that's not your thing, you might cut back on the jalapeno or use mild Rotel. Oh, and this makes A LOT of salsa. Plenty for a party.
Tonight I made Tequila-Lime Chicken (sans tequila cause I'm not about to buy a bottle of alcohol for a recipe), and it was really good. This is another recipe from The Pioneer Woman. Seriously, if you need dinnertime inspiration, check out her blog. We grilled the chicken breasts and then sliced them up and ate them on tortillas. Very good. Super easy.
And for dessert...
I've been thinking about these Pudding-wiches for a while. My mom used to make them for our family reunions in the summer. They're kid-friendly and couldn't be easier. I have a batch in the freezer and Luke and I have been snacking on them this week. I used sugar-free pudding and skim milk, so I imagine they're not too horrible for you.
1 1/2 cups cold milk
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 pkg (4 serving size) instant pudding and pie filling
24 graham crackers, broken in half
Add milk gradually to peanut butter in a deep narrow bottom bowl, blending till smooth.
Add pudding mix
Beat slowly on low speed of electric mixer till well blended, about 2 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes.
Spread filling on 12 cracker halves, top with remaining crackers.
Freeze until firm.
Mmm. Frozen peanut buttery goodness. I think I'll have one now...
