Kids-duh moments, and Pico de gallo-yum :)

So life has just been going along– Payton and Brynley are usually really good together but lately I’ve noticed that they are fighting a lot more and just being mean to each other. I was thinking this morning on how I can solve this little issue and it was like ‘duh’ they need a break from each other. Three months playing with the same person and always being with them would wear me out and make me fiesty too. I love it when the answer comes easily and I don’t have to struggle with it. Now I just need to find a way to do this :)

On another note my amazing sister in law, Dafne, gave me some of her recipes and I’m in love with making her Pico de gallo, and thought I’d share her yummy, simple way of making it.
*Do note I am no cook and I mean no cook!- food is my biggest struggle, I just don’t enjoy making it. Putting me in the kitchen for hours is like putting me in my own personal torture chamber, so this is an easy easy recipe :)

Dafne’s Pico De Gallo

First you have to have a cute little helper to watch and advise you not to cut yourself every few min.:)
ROMA TOMATOES

How ever many Roma tomatoes you want in it. For our family I usually use three or four. Dice them to whatever size you prefer. I like ours fairly small but you can make them bigger for a chunkier dip.

CILANTROThan some Cilantro (It’s by the lettuce heads usually-I worried about finding this cuz’ I had no clue what it was at first–ya I’m no cook), I usually use half of the bunch for our fam. Cut off the very ends but don’t worry about pulling all the leaves off the stems. And than just cut them as small as you can or like them-(I’m sure there is a proper way to do this, but I don’t know it)

ONION
Than Onion, Diced. I usually only use two to three slices of it because Dave isn’t a huge fan of onions and they can really overpower it.

LIMES
This is Dafne’s signature item, she puts lime juice it seems on everything and it surprisingly makes a huge difference. I usually will use half of a big lime.

SEASONING
Dafne uses Salt and Chicken flavored bouillon-(you can find it in the ethnicity isle–and I would recommended it, it’s yummy stuff and works as a great seasoning for tons of stuff) I usually just put a few pinches of each on it.

And of course your cute little helper has to be the first to try it, She’ll tell you if it’s good or not :) Enjoy!
