st. patty's day san diego style

The weather has been unresistable the last couple of days. With the time change and warmer nights, it feels like summer is already coming. The cool yet still-light evening beckoned us all outside last night. Brooke and I, sitting on the porch sipping wine while the kids picked clovers and threw them at each other. Priceless! We captured a few more pics which you can check out on my Flickr page.

I mentioned green beer, yesterday. But we decided to add a few more "green" foods to the list last night. The kids and I made green chocolate chip cookies after school and later on we made guacamole and green salsa to go along with our home made bean burritos! No Irish food here! We have some yellow-green tomatoes growing in our garden that don't have much flavor and clearly aren't red tomatoes–they voluntarily sprouted up. But they make a good salsa!

- 5 tomatoes
- 3 garlic cloves
- bunch of cilantro
- 1 lime
- 1/2 onion
- 1 jalapeno
- cumin and salt to taste

... yum!
