Yesterday I decided it was time for a day of relaxation. We goofed around the house in the morning and then went for lunch at Chili's. You won't often hear me say that we went to an actual restaurant for a meal. Chick-fil-A is about as nice as we get. But, we bit the bullet and went for a nice sit down and be waited on meal. Personally, I could eat about three baskets of chips and salsa and call it good. I love that stuff!
I make a knockoff version of the salsa that we love. Here's the recipe:
Almost Chili's Salsa Recipe
1 (14 1/2 ounce) can tomatoes and green chilies
2 (14 1/2 ounce) cans whole canned tomatoes (plus the juice)
1/4 cup yellow onion (diced) (I use dehydrated onion)
1/2-3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon sugar
Combine all the ingredients in a food processor or blender - blend until almost smooth. Eat with heated tortilla chips. YUM!
(I swore I would never post a recipe on this blog. I am so not a recipe person. Maybe now people will call me SharaDub and I will get a movie deal too!)
After we ate, I managed to get the boys to go to two different thrifts with me.
I spotted this little vintage box in the 50¢ area at the first thrift. You know I love old packaging, so I picked it up. When I opened it, I gasped out loud. The Candle Coasters were missing, but instead were these:
So, I have four different sets in all. My Great Grandmother used these on Birthday Cakes and it is my fondest memory of her.
