gael, of the famous cookie party, and also the miss america party and the f1 monaco grand prix party and the world cup parties and, honestly, every fabulous party you can think of, had us over last (last) weekend for a salsa making party.
how cool is that!?
i think that, in this case, too many cooks in the kitchen was a very good thing. collectively we chopped and diced and squeezed and stirred and tasted until we had just the right salsa.
our first was a classic tomato salsa that we all wanted a little on the spicy side.
therefore, a lot of jalapeños and serranos were required.
francine was the chili-cutting master. or mistress. or whatever. i was just happy not to have this job.
we also made a lovely, sweet, mango and black bean salsa. i took home two jars of this and have been enjoying it very much.
of course, a gael party isn't complete without appropriate decorations.
and a most delicious sangria.
all followed by sweet miss kelly demonstrating her moves with her deluxe bubble maker. (i still want to know what a bubble parade is, by the way!)
