pie & salsa
We have several friends who have brand new babies, and I've been having a great time delivering meals to them (and getting to hold sweet new babies, too!) This chicken pot pie went to one home, and it looked and smelled sooooo good that I had to document it. I do love a good pie, sweet or savoury.
Speaking of savoury, I made Marisa's basic tomato salsa recipe on the weekend from her book, and it is excellent. Sweet and hot and delicious. I omitted the cilantro, as the salsa is mostly for Adam, and he's not the biggest fan. Also because when I looked at our plant, it was in a sad, sad state. The salsa is packed with tomatoes and jalapenos from our favourite vegetable vendor at the market (she knows sooooo much!), onions from our garden, and is fresh and bright and yummy. I made two batches on the weekend, and Adam volunteered to watch the boys this Saturday so I can make another. I don't mind one bit.
We just returned after a couple of days at a camp, and it was fantastic. Everything that camp should be. Dirty, loud, exhausting, happy relaxed fun. We're trying to pack as much fun as we can into these last few days of summer. The weather has cooled down, which I am *such* a huge fan of, and I'm looking forward to our fall / winter routine again. But these last few days are precious! Go forth and enjoy.
