Romans 12:1-2

So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you. Romans 12:1-2

It seems like so long ago that my friend since first grade, kg [check out her blog, she's a wonderful artist and right now has a post about pumpkin pancakes] and I met on a Wednesday to make salsa, but it was just a little over two weeks ago [now over a month ago]. I was looking so forward to this day because before the salsa I got to go to a Moms in Touch meeting for the first time.

The day did not disappoint. I love MIT! Afterwards, Kg and I laughed, chatted and worked together to create two different kinds of salsa.

The first had the usual (tomatoes, jalapeno and garlic) plus cilantro, onion and lime juice.

The second we cooked and it was pretty much just the usual.

Kg ended up mixing hers. We ate all ours pretty quickly. M wasn’t willing to try it and after L tried both he said “Disgusting”.

I didn’t think that at all, in fact, I thought it was pretty yummy. I’d do it again. Of course, the best part was making salsa with a friend.

I’m not posting a recipe because there are tons on the Internet. But, what about you, do you have a fav salsa recipe? What about making stuff from scratch? What kinds of food are cost effective to make at home? Salsa was definitely not cost effective. The next “from scratch” I’m considering is “granola bars”.

[I obviously wrote this a while back. In all my computer woes, it didn’t get posted and now the pictures are missing from the files! I decided to post anyway – I want to record the memory. Perhaps, I’ll find those pics and post them later.]

  1. I made The Pioneer Women's salsa recipe and it was really really good. It was a lot of work and a lot of ingredients, but the end result was good.


Would love for you to share. Thanks for being a part of Our Ordinary Life.
