It's Teacher Appreciation week this week and each day the kids have an assigned item to bring for the teachers. Monday was a note. Tuesday was flowers from the garden. Wednesday was supposed to be a baked good.

Now, I had to wonder, if Mrs. Teacher has 26 students, just how many dozens of cookies is she going to get? And how many treats can one woman eat?

So Good Mommy showed up last night. Regular Mommy put the other kids in bed (because Good Mommy is fun and doesn't put kids in bed, you know) and then Good Mommy let Curly stay up and make homemade salsa for Mrs. Teacher.

Now don't get too excited. It wasn't totally homemade. I bought canned tomatoes. I just didn't feel like trying to get it right totally from scratch. But this is what we did and it was pretty yummy:

1 can of tomatoes with green chilies
1 can of tomatoes with onion and garlic
6 green onions diced
1 handful of cilantro chopped (more if you like cilantro, less if you don't)
1 small lime
1 teaspoon of garlic salt
1 teaspoon of cumin

Depending on how chunky you want your salsa, you might want to chop your tomatoes up a little more. We did.
Add cans of tomatoes to to chopped onions and cilantro.
Add seasoning of garlic salt and cumin.
Squeeze the juice of one lime into the salsa.
Refrigerate for at least an hour.

It came out quite tasty and Curly was excited to have something she made to hand over. I thought Mrs. Teacher looked quite pleased when Curly handed her the jar this morning.

Good Mommy strikes again.
