Adventure was the name of the game yesterday. Glad I didn't get shot all for the sake of some copper wire on the roof of our office building. Just so you know, LAPD will send about 25 cops including detectives, K9 units, 2 helicopters, the fire department, three news stations, blockade an entire block, and evacuate almost 100 people if they see you trying to steal copper wires. So in the end from the 3 meth-heads stuck on a roof stealing copper pipe, they only caught one.
After a 5 hour stand-in-the-sun ordeal, I really had no strength to dive into making the delicious black eyed pea curry I have been craving for. It wasn't meant to be. Although I can't complain about the salsa I made instead. A fresh summer worthy salsa of tomatoes and watermelon. Red tomatoes, red watermelon and some red onions...what's not to like...and add to it some green mint and green lemon juice. Out of control good! Add to that a no effort, no cooking required kind of a dish. I paired it with some chicken quesadillas to die for (that's another post)
Tomato Watermelon Salsa
1 cup diced watermelon (about 1/4inch)
1 cup seeded, diced tomatoes (also 1/4 inch)
1/4 cup sliced chopped red onion
2 teaspoons wash, dried and chopped mint
1 teaspoon sugar
1 chopped chili (I used Jalapeno)
salt and pepper
Mix the first 5 ingredients and squeeze the lime. Add salt and pepper per taste and mix well. Chill for a wonderful crunchy salsa.
