"Becky Home-ec-y"

Well i’m pleased to say that yesturday I made up not one, not two, but three recipes and they all turned out to be new favorite things!

The first (and I can’t share the exact recipe with you because it’s a secret and I’m going to be annoying and keep the secret this time:

Tuna Salad

This was an easy and quick little meal. It tastes delightful on a sandwich with fresh garden tomato slice and a thin slice of sharp cheddar cheese. John loved it! I also added some dill pickles into the mix this time instead of celery, and to make it a bit more on the healthy side used ranch instead of mayo-so much better. Maybe someday I’ll share the complete recipe… if i remember to write it down! I’m more of a taste as i go kind of person!

The Second: Since I’d used nearly all the pickles for the salad, I thought I’d better replace them. We have cucumbers a plenty in the garden so I used just a few to try a recipe I saw on the net: it became my own recipe because i didn’t have but 2 of the ingredients.  Here  is a pickle recipe that I will try next time and below is the finished product:

YUM! Just a bit on the salty side. Practice makes perfect.

Third [and current favorite]:

Homemade raw salsa. Love. I’m munching on it right now with these.

Depends on how much you want to make, but I used

6 fresh tomatoes
1/2 onion
1/2 tsp. cilantro ( or basil if you’re impatient to try it!)
salt (to taste)
 1/2 tsp. sriracha chili sauce (but you may want to add less if you don’ t like *spicy*

It was/is great and super easy! I think the fresh tomatoes really are the secret.
