Party fun

If I had to have a 'career-change' from my work as a therapist, my second choice I think would be to be a party-planner.  Love to throw a party!  Today is my office party - dinner for 12.  This is one of my new appetizers - a friend gave me the recipe and said the ingredients sound unique together but it is yummy.  True - just had a taste.  Confession:  I had never cut up a jalapeno before - I generally steer clear but in this dip it is delicious!  
Cranberry Salsa

1 (12oz) bag cranberries
3/4 C. Sugar
1 medium jalapeno, remove seeds and stem
2 green onions
1-2 TBSP fresh Cilantro (I use a 1/2 a bunch or more)
1/4 tsp. cumin
Place all ingredients in food processor, process until coarsely chopped
Store in fridge overnight to blend flavors. Serve with crackers and whipped cream cheese.

Cricket and I are excited for guests to arrive.

Hope your party is wonderful...I am sure it will be. You lost my MO at Cilantro, she says it taste like soap to her.
Blessings,
Goose

My daughter and DIL both make that salsa...it has such a unique flavor and looks really pretty for this time of year.

I am NOT a good party planner. I love to go to them though (tee,hee)

Goose - love it :). I'm not a fan either usually but it seems to just have the job of enhancing the flavor or something like that!

Wendy - I would visualize you as an amazing party planner and definitely a fun one to have at a party!
