September is fast approaching which means fall is nearby. I’m from El Paso and crave the hot desert weather. As much as I love warm comforting foods and the colors of autumn leaves, I will sure miss summer.
Living in Colorado, Labor Day weekend means celebrating the last weekend of summer. Everyone is camping, hiking, grilling, and enjoying the outdoors before the cold weather arrives. I’ve lived in Colorado for 15 years now and its always a guessing game when we will have our first snowfall.
This week I’m not in Colorado, I’m actually in Tampa, Florida with my mom. We are pretty excited! We will be on our first nationally syndicated TV show sharing a simple Mexican picnic menu. We taped today and the show will air on Monday (Labor Day) across the country. Check out the channel listing here to watch us in your city. I’ll be sure to update this post with a link once its online. Also be sure to follow me on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, where I will be sure to share the details.
We will also be signing cookbooks tomorrow (Friday) at Costco in Brandon from 11-2PM. If you live in the area we’d love to meet you.
In this video I show you just how simple it is to whip up a fresh salsa. Please do me a favor and don’t buy jarred salsa. Nothing beats the taste of freshly chopped fruits and veggies with a hint of spicy chile. And if you want more salsa inspiration hop on over to Today.com with more Muy Bueno salsa recipes.
This Labor Day weekend, gather together for the last outdoor fiesta of the season and start off with this simple, but flavorful mango and avocado salsa.
