Mostly about food, this blog is just a place for me to throw things that are of interest to me. I appreciate you taking the time to stop by an look around. This represents just some of the stops on the various pathways that this amateur home cook finds himself.

You may find that these foods tend toward protein and away from carbohydrates - this is due to diabetic issues, so I try to only sparingly use carbs, and good ones at that. Of course, sometimes I forget....

Feel free to drop me a line with any suggestions or just to let me know what you think. Thanks!

Fresh Tomatillo Salsa

...inspired by Lisa Fain 

Simple, crisp and green, vary the heat by varying the pepper count.  Two jalapenos makes for a pretty mild salsa.

3/4 lb tomatillos, smaller is better for taste (11 oz can may be used)
chiles - 2 jalapeño (mild) (or 2 Serrano [warmer], or more if you like)
6 cloves chopped garlic
1 1/2 tablespoon lime juice
1/4 cup chopped cilantro, packed
salt and pepper to taste

Makes approximately 1 pint

Bring a 4-5 quart pot of water to boil over high heat.  Peel the husks from the tomatillos and discard; and rinse the sticky coating off the tomatillos.  Boil the tomatillos for 5 minutes or so to soften, remove and drain.

Add the tomatillos, garlic, peppers, cilantro and lime juice to a blender.  Blend until smooth and add salt and pepper to taste.  After it sits, you may need to add a bit of water as it may thicken.

I really miss this sauce from when I lived in Texas. Unfortunately, I can't find tomatillos in Missouri.
