Salsa or Tango?

I wanted to make salsa this, but with money being tight, I thought I should probably forgo it this year. So far, we have gotten the fruit that I was able to can this year off of my parents trees.
My little brother and his wife thought that they should pay me back for watching their kids (which is like getting paid twice, since I love those little girls to pieces), so they put some salsa together for me. They had to leave and do some family things, so they brought me the salsa in the roasting pan and told me to cook it all day. It was actually quite fun and I've enjoyed all the canning that I've learned how to do this summer. Bret & Jamie told me that the amount of salsa they put together would make about 15 pints.

I was kind of a dork and bought half pint bottles instead of pint size. I had so much salsa to can that I had to borrow another wet pack canner or else I was going to be at it all night.
All in all, I we got 28 half pints of salsa. I think there is probably enough there to last me until...um lets say Christmas! :)
Look, Addison's magic!

Ooh, yummy...I love homemade salsa! I am proud of you for doing it all! Addison is so cute. She looks so proud of her little trick. Her hair is cute as well--does she allow you to do it every day?

I wouldn't say that she "allows" me to do her hair per say, but she gets her hair done everyday! :) In this picture, she had just taken a bath, so her hair is O natural.
