What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Making Salsa, for me, is a TOTAL Labor of Love.

I don't eat the Salsa I make. Oh no. Give me Sam's Club Black Bean and Corn salsa any day. You know, the kind with FLAVOR!

Matt, on the other hand, likes things HOT. The hotter the better. In fact, things aren't really on his GOOD SCALE unless his eyes are watering and sweat squeezes out of his temples. If he is unable to speak upon tasting my food, I know that I have done good.

While my first year of Salsa making had me following the recipes to the letter-seeding jalepeno's with gloves on and such. As time progressed, I would just plop the whole pepper, seeds and all in the food processor. The more seeds, the better. Now, I have taken it up one MORE notch...adding to the mixture EXTRA red pepper flakes and splashes of HOT sauce.

Nope. You'll NEVER see me trying MY salsa!
