It didn’t seem like Jenn was as excited about it as I was when I started, but I find having freshly cut salsa is both refreshing and delicious at the same time. I used the standard ingredients, tomatoes, a yellow onion, cliantro, jalepenos, but this time I decided to try adding habanero peppers to spice things up a bit. Habaneros are tiny yellowish orange peppers that look unassuming and innocent if you are not familiar with them, but boy do they pack a punch! -Jeremy
After picking up Jeremy from the airport on the day he officially moved up north, we went to the grocery store to buy food for our new apartment. Jeremy, who was living with his aunt for the majority of the four years we’ve dated, didn’t buy groceries, so this experience was new to him. While perusing the meat section, he came up to me and asked, “Can we buy salsa?” to which I replied, “Why don’t you just make some?” He blinked at me and I could tell that he would have never considered that had I not suggested. He asked, “What’s in salsa?” and I spouted, “Tomatoes, onion, cilantro, peppers, lime.” So off he went to the produce section, and I didn’t see him for quite some time. He came back, looking defeated, and confessed, “There were so many kinds of tomatoes. I didn’t know what to get.” We ended up buying a jar of organic salsa, and during the week he found a recipe he wanted to use, procured the right vegetables, and made the salsa. It was his first caloric endeavor at our new apartment.
