Road trip to Kelowna

I had to go to Kelowna for work earlier this week, so we decided to take the whole family on a road trip to Kelowna. The last time I hung out in Kelowna was over 10 years ago. This time it was so much fun to bring the kids. We took the kids peach and plum picking, visited the kangaroo farm, and played at the beach.

Day 265/365 {salsa}

Angela Chang Photography Day 265 of 365

I just realized that I haven’t shared a recipe in quite a while. I think mainly because the mister has taken over most of the cooking duties, and I don’t get to play in the kitchen as much as I used to.

Cliff’s mom’s garden produced an abundant of tomatoes in the last couple of weeks. I am not a big fan of tomatoes, but the one thing I do love that calls on them is salsa. This is just my own version of salsa that I enjoy. All measures approximate.

  • 3 or 4 ripe tomatoes chopped
  • 1/2 red onion chopped
  • 1 peach or mango chopped
  • 1/2 avocado chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper seeded and chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic minced
  • 1 stalk of green onion chopped
  • 2 or 3 stalks of cilantro chopped
  • juice of 1 lime
  • salt and pepper to taste

Throw all the ingredients into a bowl, mix, cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours to allow the flavors to meld together. Better the next day.
