The Secret Ingredient is Lime

I've heard it said that cooking is an art. I've also heard some say that most artists enjoy or have a talent for cooking. Well, I definietly believe the first and am not surprised by the second. I have known many artists to be excellent cooks! I too, love to cook. If I could have a second life, I would go to culinary school and become a stay at home chef!!
Yesterday my husband decided to clean the house all by himself while I went grocery shopping. I really am telling the truth... he did toliets, floors, the whole shebang. What I did to deserve this, I may never know, but needless to say, I was one Happy Camper!! So, being as I love to cook and he loves to eat, I decided to make some fresh salsa as a "Thank you SO much for cleaning the house all by yourself" gift. Scott loves salsa...with a passion. I think I may even come in second place when compared with salsa! So, I chopped up some tomatoes, green onions, cilantro, parsley, green chilies, roasted red peppers, and jalapenos, threw in some lime juice, cumin, salt, and roasted some corn on the cob on the grill to top it off. One big batch of fresh salsa later, we were both Happy Campers (with really bad salsa breath)!
