Thank you for the beet recipes. Beets have never been my favorite veggie, so I am eager to try some of these ideas.

Many have written and asked if I was in the flood area near Houston. Texas is a big state. From the top of Texas to the bottom (north to south) of Texas it is over 1000 miles. East to West in Texas it is almost 900 miles. To drive from Lubbock to Houston it would be 575 miles. Here in Lubbock we probably will not be impacted by the hurricane.
Houston and other areas affected by the hurricane will take many months to years to recover. They have had a lot of rain and are expecting much more. So many people have affected by Harvey. Please keep them in your prayers.

Although this Salsa takes only 5 minutes to make it really tastes better after an hour or more in the fridge. I serve a bowl of it with a cheese board.

Five Mminute Salsa Recipe

1 can (28-Ounce) Whole Tomatoes (drained)
2 cans (10-Ounce) Rotel (diced Tomatoes And Green Chilies) Original or Mild
1/4 cup chopped onion (works fine with red or white)
1/2 -3/4 cup Coriander/Cilantro, finely chopped (more or less to taste)
1-1/2 TB fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon Salt
Pinch of sugar (optional)
If you like your salsa a little spicy throw in:
1/2 to 1 Jalapeño, chopped fine
Dash of ground cumin

Combine all of the ingredients in a blender or food processor. Pulse a few times until you get a nice consistency. Taste, and add more spice as needed. Refrigerate salsa for at least an hour before serving to help marinate the flavours.
Serve with tortilla chips or on top of your favourite Mexican dish.

Little One's bed has been relocated to inside the crib. Ditto is currently sleeping in the bed. Little One doesn't seem to be upset with the new location.
