christmas salsa

Remember that one time when I peeled 1,000 tomatoes, cooked, and canned my first-ever batch of salsa? I'd never made salsa in my life, but I had high hopes of passing all those pretty little jars along as Christmas gifts. Fast forward a few months and most of it has disappeared from my cupboard. What can I say? We have Mexican at least once a week, plus I have a husband who loves to munch. (The Christmas cookies have fallen to the same fate.) For the dozen or so that were spared from our own bellies, I spent a few minutes gussying up with pretty paper, tinsel wire, and jingle bells. They're officially good for giving and too cute {for us} to crack. Merry, Merry.

Too cute. I think just about anything in those jars would be a welcome gift.
