Some folks were asking about the salsa I made last weekend so here's the basic recipe:

1 1/2 lb fresh tomatillos or 3 (11-oz) cans tomatillos
1-2 fresh jalapenos
3 garlic cloves, unpeeled
1/2 cup fresh cilantro
1 large onion, coarsely chopped
Juice from 1/2 lime
2 teaspoons coarse salt

If using fresh tomatillos, remove husks and rinse under warm water to remove stickiness. If using canned tomatillos, drain and measure out 2 cups. Broil chiles, garlic, and fresh tomatillos (do not broil canned) on rack of a broiler pan 1 to 2 inches from heat, turning once, until tomatillos are softened and slightly charred, about 7 minutes.

Peel garlic and pull off tops of chiles. Purée all ingredients in a blender.

Makes about 3 cups.

Rather than use a broiler I roasted the tomatillos on the stove top in a large skillet over medium heat for about 20 minutes. By the time I was done they were cooked all the way through and well browned. Remove the tomatillos. Next deglaze the pan with 1/4 cup of tequila, reduce that by on half and add that into the salsa as well. If you can let all the roasted ingredients sit overnight before blending the flavors meld really nicely. Add the lime juice and cilantro just before blending. This salsa is not that spicy, add more chilies if you like the heat.

It was good to see you all too, sorry I didn't make it back that evening, but I was kinda sleepy after doing my part to drain that keg at the BBQ!

My, my, my, Jeff. You do get around. Two rallies in one weekend.

What's it like to walk between two worlds?

He is free spirit not held down by the chains of the conformist MAN and able to move amongest the tribes as a feather in the wind. He was wearing a super spiffy grey shirt man really into that kinda of feeling and was totally real about the event not ready to get hung up on it or get all down clown and stuff.

Plus I was wearing a rain jacket, which really helped because it was raining. A lot.

A leaf on the wind...

I love how Egy can sound like a hippy but still be a grumpy old man. It's cute.

Love,
Chris
