I don't know if it's my age or my habits, BUT, I can tell each and everyone of you that a brain is most surely a terrible thing to waste! The only thing that I can tell you that I know for sure is my name...ADELE...the rest of it is a muddle of sorts as in I can't remember a DAMN thing....things for instance like my dentist appointment, my pocket book, my phone, my friends birthdays, telephone numbers, where I parked my car, some body's name that I know as well as my own, my car keys, why I walked into the kitchen, my grocery list, where I left that illusive glass of water, the Apple Salsa recipe....
2 large crisp apples (such as Gala or Pink :Lady)~chopped
1/2 cup chopped bell peppers (a mix of red, green, yellow)
1 teaspoon honey
1/4 cup cilantro~chopped
