There's no place like........Garner :)

In the meantime, here's a quick and easy recipe for Pico De Gallo that is SOOOO refreshing after a long day on the Frio river (and an empty cooler! :)

-5 On The Vine Tomatoes (you can use Roma Tomatoes instead but will probably need to add more since they are smaller)
-1/4 large white onion - diced
-1/2 entire head of garlic - peeled and diced
-2 large jalapenos or 3 small/medium
-1/2 bunch cilantro (leaves only)
-2 limes
-Salt and pepper

1. Take the guts out of your tomatoes and dice (I put these into a bowl and then strained the juice back into the pico since I like mine "soupier"
2. Remove the seeds and the veins from the jalapenos and dice these
3. Add the remaining ingredients, the juice from the limes and salt and pepper to taste. It's best if you cover and refrigerate. The longer it melds together the better it is. I made mine in the morning and let it sit all day while we were at the river and it was perfect by the time we got back!
