1st TOOTH and What Do You Do ...

Well Miss Charlotte got her first tooth today! I wouldn't have known she was even getting one since she has been her normal happy joyful self! I just so happened to put my finger in her mouth and check and SURPRISE - A TOOTH!
~ Miss Charlotte ~
Oh and What Do You Do When your Tomato plant gets to be THIS big? You make some HOMEMADE SALSA!! ~ My GINORMOUS Tomato Plant with about 32 tomatoes on it ~
~ These are Jason's pepper plants - jalapeno, anaheim, banana and sweet banana ~
~ Just a 'few' of my ripe tomatoes ~
~ Here is what I start off with - no measuring of course - just throw it all in a blender ~
~ Add some cilantro and then a 1/4 cup of lemon juice ~
~ For this batch I cut up 2 red peppers ~
~ I also cut up 1/2 of a red onion and 2 whole white onions ~
~ Next - the tomatoes OF COURSE ~
~ Next is Jason's favorite part - I used only 1/2 of this giant jalapeno this time~

~ Next is my FAVORITE part - the garlic of course - I use the minced garlic since it is easiest~ ~ Top it off with another handful of cilantro ~
~ Throw it ALL in the blender and press the Smoothie Setting ~
~ TADA ... Homemade Salsa Rebekah's Style ~
I have found myself eating this on prety much EVERYTHING! Last night I added it to some chicken in foil packets ... baked it on 425 in the oven for 30 minutes and it was FABULOUS! Hmm, maybe I found myself a new job huh? Or at least a hobby that is healthy to eat?
Well have a wonderful day everyone! I will be back later with pictures of the kids ... since they are what most people stop by to see anyhow!
Love ~ The Clark Family of FOUR ~ Rebekah, Jason, Jaden and Baby Charlotte!

That looks delicious! You make me want to grow some veggies! How easy/hard would you say it is to grow them? I don't exactly have a green thumb.

YUMMY. I totally miss having a garden this year. Last year I was up to my eyeballs in jalapenos and cilantro. I loved it!!

Congrats on your first tooth Charlotte!!
