Spring Salsa

What a fun Easter weekend!  We started it off on Friday night with our anniversary dinner at Hal's.  Alex and I agree, it was the best steak we have ever had.  I had the filet with crab meat and a side of hollandaise sauce.  Alex had something with a bone in it:)  Mine was definitely better.

Doesn't he look so cute!  I love getting dressed up for a fun dinner.  Alex is more of a shorts and flip flops kind of guy.

Do you think he has changed in the past 5 years?

Saturday, I took care of stuff around the house while Alex worked.  We went to dinner that night with our friend's, Lauren and Jon.  This was a "make-up" dinner from a few weeks before, when Jon didn't feel so good.  We ate at INC on the Roswell square.  Dinner was awesome!  Lauren and I split the Tacos Al Pastor. They are pork tacos with pineapple, YUM!  I tried these for the first time when we were in Mexico.

Most of the restaurants on the square have outside seating.  Perfect for this time of year.

Sunday morning we went to the 9 o'clock service at North Point Community Church.  Andy gave an amazing sermon.  Each year I think it can't get any better than this, and then it does.  We came home and got to work on the yard (by we I mean Alex) and went grocery shopping (that would be just me).  While I worked on this salsa and dessert (coming soon), Alex gave my car a much needed wash.  

"Best husband ever" award!

Yesterday evening, we went to Alex's parent's house for Easter dinner.  Susan prepared yummy BBQ, green beans, apples, and potatoes.  After dinner we sat around watching Tini and their dog, Makaya, play.

This salsa was easy to make and had a great flavor.  Super fresh for this spring weather.  Enjoy!
