It feels like a school day...

And that's what so nice about a 4 day weekend!! Kevin and I are just finishing off the packing now, getting ready to head back to VA. But before I left I wanted to post MyMom's Cranberry Salsa recipe.

Cranberry Salsa with Lime - Makes about 3 cups (which is a lot!)
1 package (12 oz) fresh cranberries, picked over and stemmed
2 large ribs celery, finely diced
1 small white onion, finely diced
1 jalapeƱo, seeded and minced
¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
½ teaspoon salt
¾ cup sugar
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
In a food processor, process the cranberries until coarsely and evenly ground then pour into a medium sized bowl. Mix in all the remaining ingredients and stir well to mix. Refrigerate until ready to serve, at least several hours, best if done day before serving.

It's yummy and there's always tons leftover to make awesome ham (or turkey), stuffing and cranberry salsa sandwiches.
