Meet my friend, Lynne!

I want to introduce you to a friend of mine.
Her name is "Lynne" and she has just started blogging.
She's been a reader of many of our blogs for a long time
and she has finally decided to join the ranks!
Lynne (on the left in the picture.. her sweet daughter is on the right) helped her parents run a wonderful antiques store
in South Texas. She now does estate sales.

Papaya and Pineapple Salsa for your Easter Dinner!

New Tex-Starr Papaya and Pineapple Salsa

8 oz. New Tex-Starr Papaya (Whole Foods), cut in 1/2" cubes
8 oz. fresh pineapple, cut in 1/2" cubes
2 green onions, trimmed and thinly sliced
1/4 c. chopped fresh cilantro
1 tsp. finely shredded lime peel
1 Tbsp. freshly squeezed lime juice
1 Tbsp. olive oil
Minced fresh jalapeno or serrano to taste.

Stir and salt lightly

Adapted from a BHG recipe

This new papaya is sweeter and milder and smaller in size. And we grow it!! Yum!!

I just had to quickly share this with you.
I'll be serving this tomorrow with our ham and pork loin.
