Seven things about me:
1. In the past few years I discovered that I like jewelry.
2. I became proficient at milking goats when we had goats in our back yard in Arizona.
3. I was completely blind in my right eye due to a detached retina-I appreciate my sight.
4. My hair started going gray when I was 19 (right after I was married...hmmm...)
5. My vice is chocolate milk.
6. I gave birth to breech twins and we all survived.
7. I love being with my family.

Can you imagine the chorus of "wails" if they were all crying together?

2 mangos - ripe
8 roma tomatoes - you can use any kind of tomato, it's best when the tomato comes right out of your garden.
1 1/2 sweet onions
2 jalapenos (seeded)
2 tsp. chopped garlic
1/2 bunch cilantro
3 Tablespoons lime juice
Peel the mangos, cut the fruit from the seed and pulse in a blender. Don't blend too much, you still want chunks. You can use as much or as little cilantro as you want. I LOVE cilantro. Am I the only one? Chop the cilantro, the tomatoes, onions and jalapenos. The first time I made this, I used the jalapeno seeds. It was TOO HOT! Not even a walk in the woods would cool it down! Maybe you like the hot taste. I have been accused of only waving the jalapeno over the salsa. You decide, but remember, it's much easier to add more jalapeno than to take some out. Add lime juice and stir well.
This made 8 cups of salsa. You can eat it right away, or let it savor in the fridge for a few hours. Eat it with chips or put on eggs...or have a luau! (There may not be the full 8 cups for the party tomorrow.)

As a child, I had normal, small, feet but as I got older, my feet grew like crazy! While in high school, there was a shoe store called "The Dollhouse." It had the cutest, strappiest shoes but the largest size was a size 9. In high school my feet were a size 9 but that size of shoe just didn't look as cute as the size 5s and I felt like Cinderella's step sister! My other uncle, who realized I DIDN"T have "doot, little feet" would say, "It takes a large foundation to hold up a mansion and a small foundation to hold up an outhouse!" (No offense to people with small feet - he just wanted me to feel better)
After having my first two children, my shoes size was a 10. After a few more children, I wore a 10 w i d e! Now...size 11! What's going on? There must be some perks to having big feet.
Famous Footwear doesn't carry a size 11 but they can get it and will ship that large sized shoe to your home with no additional charge.
I must really be a mansion!
