There's A Chef In The HOOUUSE!! Randi's Salsa

It's Labor Day, and that means picnics, cookouts, reunions, and just keeping things simple so you can relax.

Salsa and chips is a perfect food for a picnic or keeping things simple.

Just mix everything in a bowl and there you have it......simple!

There's a chef in the HOOUUUSE!! Did you drag out the word house when you said it?

Let's raise the roof for Randi.....

She is attending the local vocational school for chef training.

She is learning how to properly cut veggies, use spices, and lots of tips and tricks in the kitchen.

Then she comes home and shares with me.....YES!! I need to know more tips and tricks.

Did you know that you can get more juice out of a lemon if you microwave it? I didn't know that either.

This salsa is top notch, let me tell ya....

I couldn't quit eating it. Randi did great!

This recipe is linked to:

Recently I read an article that really made me think. What do children really see when they look at their parents? Our children are watching us, and they see our outward respectability, our desire to be right and to do good. But in some of us, they also see that the deepest thing in our life is to get gain or to enjoy pleasure. They see that we will quickly sacrifice a prayer meeting for a night out, that we are always willing to take that bigger salary, regardless of what it may do to the family in terms of new conditions or new circles of friends. They see that the things for which we sacrifice and are willing to skimp and save are not missions, or the church, or the work of God, but what they truly see is the new car, a new television, new furniture, a bigger and longer vacation, and a pretentious home. They are watching, and is this really what they see? Is this really what we are showing them? If this is what they are seeing, we need to be more careful as parents to make sure that our children do not lose interest in the Bible and church. We need to make sure that they do not sacrifice important occurrences in their life just to get ahead in the world.


  1. Congrats AGAIN to the Chef! I can learn from her too for sure. I need to use more fresh herbs...I'm sure this is a real winner. Keep 'em coming Randi...and Mom too. Hope you both enjoyed a wonderful day off from school.

  2. The salsa looks absolutely wonderful!
