I am so sorry burdell---personally I think selling a home and moving is one of the most stressful things a person can go through. It shouldn't have to be nearly so bad either-----it's the paper work and dishonest people that help to make it so bad.

Good Morning everyone

SKBS.............That is cute the "short sheeting. Good luck as VP and soon to be Prez. I did that when my kids were little. It is a thankless job and you will work really hard but it is for the kids. I remember when we had an election and I won for a few weeks there was a whack job mother who was disappointed because she didn't win so she stood outside the school for a few weeks and picketed me..............Ahhhhhhhhh Good times.

COASTALMAINE.............feel better!

BURDELL...........Good Luck with the house stuff. You are right one of the most stressful things to do.

MTH.....enjoy the bacon overload. LOL

GRAMMIE/NANA KIMBA.........maybe after this week you will be able to catch a break.

ELSTON..that pot roast sounds good.

KELSIE................hope you had a wonderful anniversary celebration with your Love.

CYN...........so happy to see youposting!

GEORGE......you crack me up.

LACEY.........will be glad when you are back. I believe it will be tomorrow?

Sorry I didn't get everyone...

Have a great Thrusday all.

ooops I forgot..tonight is leftover American Chop Suey.

Sorry to hear that as well. I hate it when something goes bad in a deal. The sale and a purchase of a home is suppose to be an exciting thing - not one mired in issues!

Hang in there, keep your eyes on the prize. Maybe you shouldn't be in the same room for closing

Burdell, I am sure it will all be over soon, and you will be able to remember this as no worse than a bad dream, one day.

Tonight we're going to the Stars game so we'll be eating at that sports arena buffet again. This time I will try not to treat dinner as a competitive sport.

Sorry for the venting, my agent and my buyer have been no problem at all, it's the attitude of the shysters that they are somehow special and we should all be at their beck & call and their seeming amnesia about just who they're working for that's getting me cranked up, they must think they're Congressmen or something

And just to get back OT, in the past I've tr4ed the recipe for a navy bean soup that's served I believe in the Senate dining room, pretty good

I picked up some salmon to grill, and some new potatoes and green beans to throw into the slow cooker.

Hi, all. No clue as to what's for dinner tonight yet. Everybody else's sounds so good.

The ones you buy in jars at the store are fully cooked, of course, and when I think of salsa, I think of either a fully cooked sauce or else one that incorporates cooked ingredients.

Pico de gallo, on the other hand, is made of raw ingredients just chopped up and mixed together. It makes for a wonderful fresh vegetable combination - and for those of us watching calories, using celery sticks instead of chips to scoop up pico is a great low-cal snack - but the flavor notes and mouth feel are different from what I think of as salsa. You get a lot more powerful onion flavor, for example, and the result is chunky and crunchy rather than the softer feel of cooked tomatoes or tomato products, if that makes sense.

I'm sure that there are a gajillion different interpretations and recipes out there - but that's the way I've always distinguished between the two in my own mind.
Can I weigh in? I make my salsa the same as MWBW's pico, but I add the juice of a lime, and some white vinegar..I never cook it.
