ROASTED TOMATILLO SALSA

How’s your summer going? We’ve been harvesting a lot of goodies from our garden recently. This year we planted tomatillos for the first time and we’re finally able to cook with them, starting with Mike’s famous Roasted Tomatillo Salsa.

Tomatillo SalsaTomatillo SalsaGardens always remind me that there’s a process behind most things. If you think about it, nothing is where it is today without patience and hard work. Sometimes when we think we want something and then realize how much work is actually involved with achieving it, it can be easy to give up or not finish what we started. I used to have this mentality with gardens. Loved the idea, didn’t love the work involved. But, I’ll never forget the first time I needed a pepper for a recipe and how cool it was to walk out into the backyard to get it. It suddenly felt worth it.
