I’m sitting at my Mother’s waiting for her to come back from church so that we can do easter lunch/dinner and we have chips but no salsa. That made me wonder, is there such a thing as Sauerkraut Salsa? Google says, YEP and we even have a video on how to make it. If you’re going to make it though, can you bring it by my Mom’s in the next 10 mintues?
On to the real purpose of Sauerkraut Sundays… As I go through the week, I use Twitterto send out little updates and links. I realize that I do this quite a bit and that not all of you use Twitter, so with that in mind I’d like to take Sunday to do sort of a week in review. I’ve selected the most useful of my tweets from the last week and placed them in to the categories that I use in this blog.
