Roasted Salsa Verde

I ♥ Roasted Salsa Verde & found this great recipe in my local newspaper (Star-Telegram) and thought I should share.

       Roasted Salsa Verde - Makes about 2 cups:
  • 8 - 10 large tomatillos, husks removed & rinsed
  • 1/2 medium white onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, unpeeled
  • 2 medium fresh jalapenos
  • handful fresh cilantro
  • sea salt, to taste

1.  Roast the tomatillos, onion, garlic, and jalapenos on a comal or cast-iron skillet, over medium-high heat, turning to make sure all sides are browned.  This'll take 15-20 minutes.
2.  Peel the garlic: put everything but jalapenos in a medium bowl.
3.  Slice jalapenos open and discard seeds & membranes.  Add to the bowl.
4.  Add cilantro to the bowl.  With a hand blender, mix everything - but not too much.  You'll wan this to be chunky.

Enjoy with Chicken Tortilla Casserole (Recipe coming soon, so check back) or with Chips!

Get in on the Savings!

Today I came across some Mommas who have never heard of JBF - Just Between Friends. So I decided not to keep the rest of you Mommas in the dark for long. I too was kept from this secret until my little 1st born was about 2 years old & a friend told me all about it. I couldn't believe I had NOT known about this for that long.

JBF is a large, LARGE, consignment one-stop shop for everything baby, toddler, kids, and maternity CONSIGNMENT SALE! Basically in a nut shell this is how it works:

Go to website and sign up. Clean out your kiddo's closets. Tag your items, take your stuff to their specified location on certain dates throughout the year, sit back at home & watch your stuff sell like crazy!!! I have sold over $700.00 at the Fort Worth Fall Sale a year ago & realized this is the best thing ever. I average about $300 to $400 at each sale. They have sales in the Spring & in the Fall. You can shop or consign or both! Either way, clear out the old & bring in the new!

This event is going on now Feb 23rd - March 2, 2010 at the Will Rogers Exhibit Hall, Fort Worth, TX

Email me if you have any questions.

Welcome to my blog. My little "mini me" is my daughter Abby! She is 2 1/2 years old & is truely like me in every good & not so good way! She is an artist, a drama queen (at times), loves life, loves to eat & is fun! I love being around my baby girl. She brings so much joy to my life. I also have a 4 year old son who is like his daddy. BUT this blog is not only about the kids & our crazy Camp life together but about how to save money! I want to help enrich lives through saving money, inspiration, laughter, & encouragement. Let's find JOY together!

Thank you for stopping by as I load up all the goodies to my blog.
