My little helper!

Well, it’s salsa time!
And what a job it is. I picked the tomatoes and peppers from the wonderful garden that my husband did. Then got everything ready to start the all day process of SALSA.I thought that I was going to have to do it all by myself
(Blair and the two older boys had other things they were doing).
So I get started and who should come down to help........
My little helper….Shawn. I am not kidding he was the best helper. Once I told him what his jobs were his was on top of it. I didn’t have to tell him what to do.He made sure their were tomatoes in a bucket for me, helped my get the skin off the tomatoes, ("Pop them out" as he would say), he put the tomatoes in the blender, and then he would turn on the blender for me. He even helped me with the peppers. If any of you have made salsa you know you have to try it before you put it in the bottles. Shawn and I tried it I thought it was really good. Dylan came home and when he tried it he told Shawn "if you entered this in a salsa contest you would win."
Well Shawn is pretty proud of himself. If you ask him who made it he will tell you he did. I am so glad I had a really big helper for this.
