My daughter Amy was fixing lunch for our family to have a picnic outside. Her heart was set on tacos. She worked hard to feed her family. She had to thaw the hamburger, cook it and then create a taco spice blend. She sliced the olives, mashed the avocado for guacamole, and she made homemade salsa. (her mom didn’t have a stash in the fridge)
I was so proud of her. She did all of this because she wanted too. We all enjoyed the Spring weather but most of all I enjoyed being the mom of this brilliant 11 year old.
1 14.5 ounce can of diced tomatoes, drained
1 fresh Jalapeno peppers, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
2 Tablespoons lime juice
3 cloves garlic, peeled
1 Tablespoon dried parsley
1 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
3 dashes hot sauce
Combine all ingredients in a food processor and pulse 3-10 times.
If you have a child who loves to cook, allow them to the spread their wings and serve you lunch. They can very well surprise you.
To your best health,
