Beautiful Sunday - 08.06

I was thinking what could I capture for Beautiful Sunday without leaving my house. I have pretty much shot everything in my yard and have no new flowers (most are burned up). Then I saw my mom carrying this bowl of vegetables and said "Now, that is beautiful!" My mom and the bowl of vegetables!
My mom, the vegetables and a recipe of salsa that she just whipped up for Beautiful Sunday!

Fire roasted Salsa, this is a quick, made in a Cuisinart recipe
1 can of fire roasted tomatoes
1 small onion, chopped
2 roasted Jalapenos (fire-roasted over gas flame and sliced)
1 clove of garlic, minced
1/2 t salt
1/2 t sugar
1/2 t powder cumin
1 T olive oil
1 T balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, torn in pieces

Toss all ingredients into Cuisinart, pulsing until desired consistency.

Does your mom work outside the home? She looks so put together. She's lovely to look at and a sight to behold.

Drop over and I would be a sight too, but not necessarily the good kind. Call first! LOL

I want that corn. For some reason, this season I can't get enough.

Your mother reminds me a lot of Debbie Reynolds. :)

thanks guys, will have to pass it on to mom .... ;)
Mom works exclusively for the good of the family ;) ... she does not work outside the home, but does all the very hard work around the house. I could not work like I do if she weren't there to pick up the pieces. And Linda, she has always looked fresh and young, she can take a $3 shirt and $1 pants and look stunning. A trait, she did not pass on to her daughter ...
