Halloween Inspiration

If I was going to be any kind of weirdo I would be this kind. I just watched Kamikaze Girls, recommended to me by my friend Megan. I loved it so much. So the obvious next step would be to become a Lolita right? Maybe not but here are some awesome images from the film!

Recipes: Pico De Gallo

Today I wanted to share with you one of my favorite parts of what we call in this house hold Taco Night! Olé! Ok, ok I know your what your thinking not so exciting but it really is because all you have to do is pick up some tortilla's and throw in your favorite filling. (Click here for my Veggie Fajita Taco recipe). But for me what really makes taco night is fresh salsa, so I started perfecting my recipe for perfect Pico De Gallo. This is super easy so give it a try, and I use cherrie tomatoes here because I feel that their sweetness helps to balance out spicy fillings. I recommend serving this with soft corn tortillas or chips, but feel free to go crazy.

1 pint Cherrie Tomatoes quartered
1 cup diced fresh Cilantro
1/2 diced white or yellow Onion
1/2 of a Jalapeno seeded and diced (keep seeds for extra kick)
2 Limes juiced

In a bowl combined all of the ingredients listed above and stir making sure that the lime juice coats every thing evenly. You can serve this right away but it's best to let it sit in the refrigerator while you prepare your meal so that the flavors meld together.
