Today I will be making salsa. Can you guess why I am in...
...these stocking feet?What do stocking feet have to do with salsa? Well, a lot. It seems that when I am wearing flats or stocking feet all day while standing my back begins to hurt. I also notice how tired I become at the end of the day after all that chopping.
Day one; dealing with tomatoes. I blanch them to remove the skins, then chop them. Always wear gloves when handling hot peppers.
Day two; the peppers and onions. I chop faster if I am standing. My solution? Clogs! The Scandinavians and the Dutch got it right. I wore these the second day. My back did not hurt and I was not tired by the end of the day. I had more energy! My daughters would've said, "Mom, you're not supposed to wear that kind of shoe with "skinny jeans." Well, I won't tell if you won't. Let's face it, there is nothing glamorous about making salsa. We must find our glamour someplace else. So... We did. Grace Kelly is the glamour in this day. "Rear Window," has suspense, romance.. .you name it, it's all there. Her clothes, taffeta, silk, and divine crepe are all there. She has such style and grace in her walk and talk. Her jewelry is tastefully worn. Each outfit complete.
I got so caught up in the movie, when my husband came in the room I turned to him, very seriously and said,"We think Thorwall's guilty." This brought an all knowing chuckle to my fun loving husband. My time making salsa became an event. Cilantro is a must for good salsa.
So all that time and chopping are now on the shelf waiting for winter. Yum! If you think you have seen this post before it because I am re-posting it. This is what I am doing now in my life. I get to enjoy my home and garden again. I get to show my family how much I love them. I am doing things I love once again. I am truly blessed. Please write me a comment today. I'd love to hear from you. Blessings, Kathi
