Too Many Tomatoes, Look At Me!, Fruit Salsa

1. I waited until dusk for the heat let up to pick tomatoes. Too many tomatoes! Is that possible? I'm thinking of where I can bring the next box load for sharing. I am just not into canning them right now.
2. Some neighbors are walking down the road and the horses put on a show. They gallop all around the field, tails high, and run along the fence line where the people are walking. Show-off boys.
3. Mangoes were on sale this week so I made a batch of fruit salsa, much to Tess' delight. We'll eat it for breakfast : )

Sweet Salsa with Cinnamon Chips

1 pineapple
2 mangoes
3 kiwi
2 bananas *but only if serving immediately, otherwise omit
10 frozen strawberries

Flour tortillas
cinnamon sugar
melted butter
Puree strawberries in blender and set aside.
Chop all the fruit into little, bite-sized pieces and combine in a large bowl.
Pour pureed strawberries over all and stir to combine.
Cut flour tortillas into four triangles each. Brush with melted butter, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Bake at 400° for 7-8 minutes. Cool.

Serve salsa with crispy cinnamon tortillas.


  1. I have made mango salsa to serve with salmon, but this recipe sounds wonderful, Lee. One can never have too many tomatoes according to my husband. Can you send some our way, please?

  2. I love the imagery of the horses. :)

    And too many tomatoes - what a nice problem to have.

  3. I never thought one could have too many tomatoes, either, but we have also had that problem this year. I have given them away to lots of folks. Even my doctor!
