Salsa and Strawberry Ice Cream

My boyfriend love's salsa. Recently he wanted me to make some. He remembered a friend of his made the best salsa, of course, he also remembered his friend would make it in a blender, and we don't happen to own a blender, But thankfully I was able to find a recipe....

Barbecue Salsa Dip 
4 large tomatoes coarsely chopped
Juice of ½ lemon
1 tablespoon finely chopped flat leaf parsley
½ teaspoon salt
½ red onion finely chopped
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2 green chiles, seeded and finely chopped
It’s really this simple. Mix together all the ingredient and stand for in the refrigerator for 15 minutes. When ready to serve, remove from the refrigerator, give it a stir and enjoy!

Here is the link to the original recipe.

With that what could be better than Strawberry Haagan Daaz ice cream...
It is so sweet and so yummy. I love the strawberry chunks buried in their ice cream.
Talk about yummy in my tummy.

Until next time.

Arsenic and Old Lace

Everyone can agree it has been very hot the last couple of weeks. If you have the time and want to cool off go to the Ivoryton Playhouse and see "Arsenic and Old Lace," By Joseph Kesselring and directed by Julia Kiley.

The play is hilarious and the cast is wonderful.  It runs from June 9 to June 27.  It also coincides with a book that came out called The Devil's Rooming House by M. William Phelps which is the story which Arsenic and Old Lace is based off of.  The true story originated in Windsor, Connecticut.

Cary Grant played Mortimer in the movie version of this play. Who doesn't enjoy watching Cary Grant in action.

I am sorry to say that I stopped posting recipes after the Popover disaster but I will try again.
While it is hot you better get yourself some ice cream.
Who can't resist Haagan Daaz chocolate. Talk about smooth flavor. Here is the ice cream with the cover off.
Stay cool.

Bunny Rabbits, Ice Cream and Glee

Here is one of my neighbors. My boyfriend loves bunnies and rescued one last year from the dreadful lawnmower outside of our apartment.
I seem to be on a roll this Summer with ice cream and new flavors to try. I love Haagan Daaz and Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream.  The latest flavor I tried recently is Boston Cream Pie.
Here it is with the cover off.
This has a really wonderful flavor. It is very creamy like the yellow cream busting out of the Boston cream pie.

Glee is the hottest television show. When I turn on the television all I hear about is all the celebrities who want to participate. Glee brings back the return of the musicals. Chris Colfer who plays Kurt was on Ellen, and she expressed an interest to be on the show. I have enjoyed watching all the guest stars. Sue Sylvester is a character you just love to hate.

You see Chris above. John Stamos I heard is joining the cast. I can not wait to see more of the drama.

Enjoy your day and watch some Glee.

Ben and Jerry's S'mores Ice Cream

It's summertime and there is no better time to try some different ice cream flavors. My latest trial was Ben and jerry's S'mores ice cream.
Now here is the inside of the container.
If you like soft ice cream that is melted this ice cream is perfect for you. The soft marshmallow makes this ice cream soft.

By the way if you want to see how dirty a counter or wall is, take a picture of it. Look at it, and if you are like me the next thing you will want to do is clean it.

I recently saw the movie "The Informant!" starring Matt Damon.
The Informant!
It gave me a new understanding of white collar crime and price fixing. I could not resist writing an article about it. There are so many articles online about corporations price fixing despite the fact that it is illegal. They appear to rather prefer ti price fix and face the consequences later. I know I get carried away I just do not like to hear of people abusing the system.

Don' t fret about price fixing and let it get you down. You only have one life, so relax and enjoy the free time you have.
