Finishing My Coffee

and then I am out the door. Today is all about the chickens! I am on my way to pick up the supplies to build an outdoor coop for all my young-ins' (not the boys, the chicks besides the boys already have their own cage!). I have 11 young guineas and 19 young chicks that are about half grown and their little coops are getting way too small. After getting all the corn put up yesterday, I get a chance to play outside today if it doesn't rain! I'll be back with pics this afternoon of my WIP. I might even get it finished if I get up from here and get moving!

While I am here I will leave you with an awesome cucumber salsa recipe that I got from a friend this weekend. If you love fresh cucumbers, you will love this. It can also be made and frozen.

Cucumber Salsa
4 cups cucumbers
1 can Mexicorn
1 can Rotel
1/4 cup white vinegar
Canning salt
Onion powder
Garlic powder
Chop cucumber and combine with Mexicorn (mostly drained) and Rotel. Add canning salt, sugar, onion powder and garlic powder all to taste. Don't you hate it when someone says to taste LOL. I just kept sprinkling each of them until it tasted good! You can also add jalapeƱos if you like a little spiciness. Serve with tortilla chips.

I hope you all have a wonderful Thursday and don't forget to comment on the cookbook giveaway post!

I love your recipes! Thanks! Sounds like the perfect summer treat! Yeah, I've always been a little bothered by "to taste". I guess there's really no other way to say it though, huh? :)
