I am excited to write about all things I am passionate about...and some, well, that I may not be passionate about. But all things are happening in this LIFE. And, I want to document and have accountablity to living life with intention. And so it goes...

Excellentay!

We had such a fun weekend which surprisingly started out by being home on a Friday evening! After a very busy week, we definitely welcomed this change in our schedule. Good thing too, because the rest of the weekend proved to be rather busy, but lots of fun, all the same.


Ever since she posted the recipe for Restaurant Style Salsa I had been dying to try it. We love salsa over here and frequently have Super Nachos on those "bum around home" kind of nights. When I say Super Nachos I just mean that I basically add taco meat to cheesy chips and make it a meal. So her Restaurant Style Salsa recipe was up for deliberation. Restaurant Style Salsa is very similar to a salsa recipe that I normally make, but with a few added ingredients. We all agreed that Restaurant Style Salsa will replace my normal salsa recipe. It was excellent! Now if only I could find tortilla chips that taste like those from Chili's!!


Have to let you all know about one of my favorite kitchen appliances of all time. I use this almost everyday to make smoothies for Landon and I. And it is very handy when making salsa. It is called a Vitamix--ever heard of them? Does anyone have one and do you use it much? Go here to check them out. Awesome, powerful machines, let me tell you!! I love it. We got ours at Sam's Club on a special promotional deal. Just a little tidbit...
