I want to thank everyone for all your sweet well wishes. My headaches are completely gone and I feel sooooo much better.
It has been a busy last week or so partly due to some projects K has been working on. They have been doing a unit called See the USA. She was responsible for research and 5 projects (one being a report) on 5 different sites across the USA. She created a t-shirt, poster, mobile and a diarama. I am so proud of how hard she worked, there were several nights that she had no free time at all. Everything was due yesterday and today they are having a Taste of Americana party. I made some of my yummy salsa for her class. I told her teacher I would send her the recipe so I thought I would share it with you too.
1 (16 oz) can crushed tomatoes
2 (16 oz) cans diced tomatoes
1 small can green chilies
1 medium onion
2 large jalapenos (seeded and chopped)
2 gloves garlic
1/2 c. chopped fresh cilantro (I add a little bit more)
2 Tbsp. lime juice
1 Tbsp. sugar
salt to taste
Combine all ingredients.
*my family does not like chunks in their salsa so I put everything in the blender and puree it. It's much quicker that way too. :)
I am looking forward to this weekend. L has her first gymnastics meet of the season this weekend. She has been working so hard and has come so far. It should be good meet.
I wanted to share another project with you today. I created these tags for the Emma's Paperie blog this last week. I had so much fun making these. Each tag is printed on grid paper and inked for a worn look. I added lace to the bottom of each of the tags and lots of sparkles. Hope you enjoy them. I will be adding these to my Etsy shop if anyone is interested in purchasing them. :)
