Fresh Salsa

Morning (breakfast, snack):

  • half decaf coffee*
  • toasted whole wheat bagel with peanut butter

Afternoon (lunch, snack):

  • Tim Horton's half decaf coffee*
  • LO grilled teriyaki chicken, brown rice (with margarine, salt & pepper), and grilled red and yellow pepper
  • about half of a large "Birdseed Cookie" from Old Fashion Foods (ingredients: rolled oats, whole wheat flour, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, coconut, raisins, walnuts, organic flax, wheat germ, eggs, butter, and honey)

Evening (supper, dessert/snack): at Bronwyn's birthday party

  • a ton o' party food: potato chips, corn chips, homemade fresh salsa (see below), crackers, cheese, sausage, red pepper, cauliflower, carrot, mushroom, veggie dip, cherry, apple slices, orange segments, green grapes, lots of fresh pineapple
  • two pieces of white birthday cake
  • a chocolate-covered marzipan
  • a Miller Genuine Draft beer
  • coffee*
    In our opinion, this is the best fresh salsa (p. 31, Hot and Spicy by Koren Trygg and Lucy Poshek): 1 pound ripe red tomatoes (seeds removed & chopped), 2 tbsp. white onion (chopped), 3 cloves of garlic (minced), 1/4 cup fresh cilantro (chopped), 1 small whole jalepeno or serrano pepper (sliced), 2 tsp. lime juice, 1/4 tsp. salt -- place all ingredients except the onion and half of the chopped tomatoes into a food processor; process for 3-5 seconds; strain excess liquid; stir in onion and remaining tomatoes.
