The drama was intense.
After a slight mishap with our lovely new fridge's temperature settings during which the fresh salsa I made on Saturday froze overnight and wasn't fit to be served on Sunday (oops. My fault. My bad.), I whipped together a fresh batch of salsa on Sunday morning. I even roasted the jalepenos and garlic ONCE AGAIN even though it made my fingers burn the first time. And then, just for kicks, I made a batch of apple/raisin/walnut muffins. I felt very domestic.
At the swap, I cautiously presented my meager fare in plastic containers and generic ziploc baggies and hoped for the best.
friendly faces helped allay my fears and I firmly set my sights on some yummy, spicy chutneys (what IS chutney, anyway?) and baked goods.
Melisa! I've missed her. We should do a LTYM every other month, Girl. What say you?
Savory Spice shop in Hinsdale with my favorite item of all: Chutney relish! OMGOMGOMG it was SO GOOD! I think I would have given her twice the amount of muffins or salsa that she took in trade, but was thrilled to just walk out with a jar! I may have to hide it from my husband...
I am SO going to the next food swap in August. I think my tomatoes will be ripe and ready by then and I will bring a big ole batch of fresh pasta sauce...
