that perfect hand…

In Ocean's 11, Danny said that "the house always wins. If you play long enough, never change the stakes, then the house takes you. Unless, when that perfect hand comes along, you bet big… and then, you take the house." Here's the hand I've been dealt, sometimes it's risky and sometimes it's safe, but all the time… it's perfect. It's mine.

salsa

Nadina officially secured her place in my eventual wedding party as a result of yesterday. I mean, who better to stand up for me than the person I first learned how to over-estimate the amount of peppers we needed with (thank God for Thrifty’s and letting us return them!), under-estimate the amount of tomatoes we needed, worked in tandem to create our very FIRST batch of salsa EVER, and finally, the very FIRST time we’veĀ  ever used a canner/processed jars? That’s right! Yesterday was a day of MILESTONES for us… and I think we made it through relatively unscathed. Doesn’t taste bad, either! We’re so grateful to Ky to let us invade her kitchen with our chopping and music and artichoke and asiago cheese dip. Success? I think so!

Yum!

Yum!

Nadina's handiwork!
