Scenery and a recipe for salsa...

This morning fog rolled in and blanketed the seafront with a cool damp mist.
The scenery took on an ethereal look...
pretty fuchsia flowers growing along the rugged cliffs stood out in the haze.

There was a distinct chill in the air 
until the sunshine came out and burnt off the fog.
It feels like Summer might be fading and Fall is on the way...

The roses in The Humble Bungalow Garden are very happy.
They thrive in the heat and sunshine, provided they get plenty of water.

This vintage chair planted up with flowers at the garden centre stopped me in my tracks. 
I love how it was repurposed as a planter.
A very clever way of recycling an old piece of furniture.

We purchased some drought tolerant grasses for some of our planters in the front garden on the weekend.
Many new and interesting grasses are on the market.
They are often reasonably priced and they are an easy way to add texture, interest, and colour.
Usually the deer do not eat them...
time will tell.

If you are counting your calories or WW points you will like the low calorie and point count of this delicious salsa.

It is quick to make and adds a punch of flavour.

Chef John's recipe is found online at All Recipe'

I like to pair this with white fish for dinner.
I have also used it in a fish taco...
I opt for the small corn tortillas as they have higher fibre than the flour tortillas.

If you are following along with me on my journey to shed a few pounds...
I wonder how are you doing.

The brisker walking is really making a big difference in how I feel.
I must admit that my muscles are a wee bit sore but my feet are fine.
Decent walking shoes make a huge difference to my comfort.
I also put moisturizer on my feet before popping on bamboo sox.

Hope your week is off to a great start.
