Guys, I am really feeling depressed that summer is coming to an end! I took a look at my summer bucket list and sadly, I didn’t do a lot of the things I wanted to. :-( I did go to Stumptown Coffee though to try their nitro brew and unfortunately I didn’t think it was that good. They don’t serve it with ice so it kind of tasted like room temperature iced coffee. Oh well, at least I tried!
This weekend I was craving something with fresh veggies that required no cooking. My entire apartment gets so hot when the oven is on, and I couldn’t handle any more sweating while being indoors. This fresh Peach and Corn salsa is super delicious, and the sweet peach balances out the jalapeño perfectly. Although PLEASE pay attention when you are making this (unlike me) and don’t rub your eye shortly after cutting up the jalapeños! I seriously thought I was going blind, as water was pouring simultaneously out of my left eye and nose for several minutes. Also my fingers were kind of burning later in the day but felt better when I put a baking soda and water paste on them. I am sitting here thinking about right now and laughing, but TRUST ME I was not laughing at the time. Anyhow, the salsa is very delicious and easy to make! I have been putting it on crackers and topping with some plain yogurt.
