While I was growing up, my parents would occasionally imitate “dumb blondes” with something they had seen in a commercial or a joke they had heard. A waiter in a restaurant asks the blonde, “Red or white wine?” She replies, “Sure!” So she’s either dumb or an alcoholic, or both.
This week, I planned on making salsa. The days are longer, the shorts have been unpacked, and the beautiful, fresh tomatoes are returning to the farmers’ market. As I was walking up and down the market searching for jalapenos, I found tomatillos first. Later, I found the jalapenos. When I started pulling out my recipes, I noticed my favorite salsa recipe didn’t have tomatillos in it. So should I make red or green salsa?
