What happens when you show up at my house on my day off? You get roped into making salsa!

Thank God Ang showed up today. I got the idea that I would try canning salsa. Now I have been putting this off for a few weeks, I now understand why. I thought about making a half batch but then I figured I wouldn't want to do it twice if it worked. So 20 pounds of tomatoes, 6 onions, 30 different peppers and some other stuff, I now have salsa.

I chopped tomatoes and peppers for about 2 hours and Ang chopped for an hour to get stuff started. Then it ends up my biggest pot is not big enough. To top it off it is supposed to make 20 pints of salsa, WRONG!!! I washed up 18 jars and figured we'd eat the rest. I have filled all 18 jars, we have eaten 2 bowls full and I still have a quarter of the salsa to can. I am now washing 6 half pint jars too.

Top all this off I am making dinner too, for six of us!
