My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Finished, Fresh Tomato Salsa & on going on Vacation

The fall is maybe my favorite time of the year,  I know I have  posted a lot of food items lately and I feel sure I am  not sharing a fact that I Love Food & to well as to cook, Trying different recipes, textures and flavors,  and probably one of my husband and my favorite snack items is Tortillia Corn Chips with Salsa. After  purchasing may brands the past few years, I came upon a recipe that we altered a bit to our taste. We love it and  have used it to top eggs, and tacos and other Mexican dishes, now for the second year we have made our own. This year we  put it up in pint jars and managed to get 10 for the pantry processed today. That will last for a few months....if we ration our consumption.
There is such a satisfaction in planting organic & heirloom seeds and plants, growing, harvesting and processing your own food with no preservatives.  It is a lot of work but  my it looks nice on the shelf. Forget about the sore back and dirty fingernails from start to finish. Ahhh! yet another harvested crop can we go on vacation? I will be taking you along with me as we travel next week  to South Eastern Oregon, into Idaho and Montana and on to Alberta, Canada...  So pack light, bring your passport  .... Enjoy the sites with us  and enjoy the journey.... but  be sure to bring a plenty of chocolate and a treat for Buster! Yes, he is riding along too.

Nice to hear from you. YOU HAVE BEEN ONE BUSY GIRL. SO MANY PRETTY JARS OF YUMMY STUFF. THEY ALWAYS LOOK SO PRETTY LINED UP ON A SHELF YOU HATE TO USE THEM. Oh look all caps! Nevermind. And you even have bees. I need to live near you so I can enjoy some of your good stuff.
