Roasted Tomatillo Salsa and an Engagement Ring

It has been a while since I posted, and I always like to share my finds and adventures.
This past weekend, Bob and I went to the local farmer's market and bought some great produce.  I didn't have anything particular in mind when I picked up tomatillos, onions, jalapeno peppers and garlic but soon realized a roasted Tomatillo Salsa would be their final journey.
Slightly sweet, a little savory this salsa would go perfectly with anything from topping a burger to eating alone with tortilla chips.
Roasted Tomatillo Salsa

8-10 tomatillos, husks removed and rinsed, cut into quarters
2 cloves garlic
1-2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and cut lengthwise (use 2 for more heat)
1 onion, peeled and cut into quarters
olive oil
handful of fresh cilantro leaves
1 lime

Heat oven to 450 degrees.
Place the tomatillos, onion, garlic and jalapenos on a cookie sheet and drizzle with a little olive oil.  Roast in the oven for 15 minutes or until everything is slightly charred.  Let cool.
Process roasted veggies, cilantro and lime juice in a food processor or blender until smooth.

On another note, even though Bob and I are engaged, he bought me something I have wanted for a long time...a Latvian engagement ring!!  The ring has 7 charms on it and here is a link explaining what the symbols mean:
