Cucumber Salsa

I pretty much followed this recipe: 
But if you know me, you know I left out the cilantro ;) 

2 medium cucumbers, peeled, seeded and chopped
2 medium tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
1 small onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 teaspoons minced fresh cilantro (I left this out. I HATE CILANTRO!)
1 teaspoon minced fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon dill weed (Fresh is better, but dried works too!) 
1/2 teaspoon salt

In a large bowl, combine the ingredients. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. 

Serve with baked tortilla chips

Yield: 4 cups

Oreo Peanut Butter

Peanut Butter
Today my daughter and I tried Crazy for Crust’s Oreo Peanut Butter. It was easy with only 2 ingredients, honey roasted peanuts and Oreos, combined in the food processor for a mere 4 minutes. (Okay, Okay, I know these 2 ingredients do contain many other ingredients, but work with me here!)

The only modification we made was to add five extra cookies (Couldn't help it!) We tried it on graham crackers and a spoon as suggested. We thought about trying it on bananas but haven’t done so yet.

If you like peanut butter, you will like this one.

Our version:

1 ½ c. honey roasted peanuts
15 Oreos

Whirl to smooth perfection in the food processor. Be patient it takes 4 minutes!

Store in a jar at room temperature.

Original can be found here.
