i have a ton of tomatoes, green/red peppers, zucchini, and jalapenos from my garden, so, with the addition of garlic, onions, lime, and cilantro, i'm gonna make salsa.

does fresh salsa freeze well? i have no time to do a proper water bath canning.

as far as dinner goes, i'm never sure 'till i get home.

I have a bunch of chicken thighs, so it will either be Chicken Paprikash, or Breezy's Chicken Hungarian Goulash, served with broad egg noodles. I'm still getting swiss chard and cherry tomatoes fromt eh garden, so will probably sautee them.

I think it would be like freezing any of those ingredients on their own--their texture will go a bit mushy. I peel/seed/chop tomatoes and slice peppers and freeze them, but I only ever use them in cooking, then, because their texture isn't something you'd want to eat on their own. So salsa might be a gamble.

Here, it's leftovers again, but to make up for it I have a batch of trail mix cookie bars in the oven.

thanks poopsie. (not you, yt. i'll give you your own cute nickname, if'n you want)

most of the salsa will never make it into the freezer, anyway.
i made, then ate almost a full quart last week. in one sitting!

i'll try an experiment freezing one or two pints, first.

I am not sure how to answer about freezing your home made salsa. I freeze mine and let it thaw on it's own, then use. But the texture probably is compromised somewhat. I do it though and we enjoy it still. You'll have to do it and then you can be the judge.

Just took a frozen fillet mignon tenderloin out to thaw. Will jab it with rosemary sprigs and garlic slices then sea salt/pepper corn medley rub and finally slather it with bing cherry jam for it to marinate. It'll get baked.
Garlic/butter/thyme/olive oil new potatoes with carrots and broccoli will get roasted in the oven. Home made hummus on sourdough from Trader Joe's. I made a recipe that I did a search on for my Scottish Shortbread the other day. It included an egg in the mix. Getting home last night from being gone for several days, my darling said he couldn't hardly eat the cookies cause they are rock hard. Never again will I switch how I make his favorite cookies. It's 3 ingredients, not the 5 this one called for

I'm making a chicken veggie dish only... I'll be using turkey instead of chicken.
I think we'll have steamed cabbage to go with it.
