Easy Chicken Kabobs and Homemade Salsa

One of the great blessings from our recent furlough was that we got a new sponsoring church.  It is the Monrovia Church of Christ in Madison, Alabama.  We feel very blessed that they are so excited to be sponsoring our family and getting involved with our church in Porto Alegre.  This church is also the home church of my parents and I know many of the members from my growing up years, so it is a double blessing for us to have our sponsoring church know and love our family so well.

While staying at my mom's house, I noticed that she had a cookbook from the Monrovia church.  I told her I would love to have a copy (I love church cookbooks).  After finding out that there were no more copies available, my mom ended up giving me her copy (that's the kind of mom she is...).  She says that they are going to reprint the cookbook so she can get one then.

I have already tried two recipes from the cookbook.

One was called Easy Kabobs and it was submitted by Donna Schrader who I have known and loved almost all my life.  This recipe is super, super easy and we all loved it.   I didn't take a picture of it, but here it is for you to try:
(Next time, I might try substituting olive oil for the butter to make it a little healthier.)

The second thing I made was Homemade Salsa.  I have made my own salsa for years, and mine basically has these same ingredients.  But this recipe had a few different touches and was really, really good.  It was submitted by Amy Hendrixson, a friend of mine from high school.  Here it is:
(note:  I don't peel the tomatoes.)

I love looking at all these recipes and thinking of these people that I know.  I really look forward to using this cookbook more!
