Some times you fall before you fly. In my case I had to stumble in the dark, fall on my face and get up again… only to walk into a wall.

Venice Under Water

http://edition.cnn.com/2012/11/12/europe/gallery/venice-floods-november-11/

According to CNN, this is Venice right now… about 15 inches of flooding all over the city. I sure hope it goes down before we visit at the end of the month! I don’t think my galoshes are gonna cut it! I need waders or a canoe!!

But there was no need to be ashamed of tears, for tears bore witness that a man had the greatest of courage, the courage to suffer.

Ninfa’s Salsa Recipe

ooh. I found a Ninfa’s Salsa Recipe. They have the best restaurant salsa ever. I might have to try this. This might be worth hooking up my food processor to the power converter for. 

Also there is some queso in the fridge that Sahd apparently thinks is going to last until Football Sunday. ha ha ha ha! mwahahahaahahhaha! we’ll see about that!

Ingredients:
1 -2 chiles de arbol
1 -2 dried red pepper, if you can’t get chiles de arbol
4 medium tomatoes, halved
3 garlic cloves
4 sprigs cilantro
1 teaspoon salt
1 -2 jalapeno (optional)
1 -2 tablespoon oil (Recipe doesn’t specify the type.)
1/2 cup tomato sauce (optional)

Directions:
1. Place the dried chiles on a cookie sheet and toast in a 325-degree oven for 3 to 4 minutes. Stem and seed them, and then set aside.
2. In a medium skillet, simmer the tomatoes and garlic, in just enough water to prevent scorching until softened-about 20 minutes. Transfer to a blender and puree along with the cilantro, salt, toasted chiles, and if desired, jalapenos, for 1 to 2 minutes.
3. Sauté the pureed salsa in a skillet with hot oil for 1 to 2 minutes.
4. If the salsa is pale, you may wish to add some tomato sauce to deepen the color.
5. This salsa may be made in advance and either refridgerated or frozen.
