THIS WEEK'S CRAVINGS #53 (MEN COOK) and Homemade Salsa

The Theme is: MEN Cook

(Did you know that the first Thursday in November is

Well, I've been trying for weeks to get my husband to cook dinner and it never happened. First you have to know that he NEVER cooks (only spaghetti and I already posted that), read about that here and he works ALOT of hours. I just don't mean he comes home late everyday. I mean he works 7 days a week, 12 hours a day, and when he is not working he is sleeping, his bed time is 6:30pm (SERIOUSLY). I can say we LOVE the overtime money, because it is helping us make leaps and bounds on our Dave Ramsey plan, but it does really suck sometimes. But, I had a very important post to come up with! I NEEDED a "MAN COOKING DINNER". I did the next best thing and recruited  my two adopted sons, Adam & Garrett. They really aren't adopted they are my twins best friends, since birth. They are part of a set of triplets (their sister is away at college, in New York) and my girls are twins (in case you are a new reader) and they are all BEST-BEST-FRIENDS. Here are the twins and the boys a few years ago. 

It was a busy weekend, I cooked a full Thanksgiving dinner on Saturday (it was delicious and I will be posting all the new recipes BEFORE Thanksgiving just in case you want some new ideas for this year). And on Sunday we had a celebration birthday dinner for my best friend, the triplets mom and for the triplets (except we had to Skype Brenda in New York). Carol made a mexican feast and it was YUMMY! We all came home stuffed. Garrett made the Homemade Salsa, and Adam will be making us a batch here at our home tonight (Adam is a regular guest at our house because his work and college are much closer to our house then his own home, so he visits us often and we love it)! Here are a few of my favorite pictures of them!

I LOVE THESE GUYS! Adam, Garrett, Brenda, Ashlyn & Kayley
I know they will be friends forever and ever!!!
Adam first made this Homemade Salsa for a Salsa Contest in his Spanish Class his freshman year in High School, he is now a freshman in college and they have been making it ever since.

YES, this recipe won FIRST PLACE.
