Leanne Boone and Life Lesson #14

This is a break from my usual blogging style, but I feel as though I need to come clean.

After sorting through some older e-mails this week, I noticed a comment I received from my wonderful friend Marie.  She lives in Germany and I have always enjoyed our conversations and correspondence.  I especially love that she reads this blog (Hi Marie!).  Her comment was regarding “my” Magic Salsa.  It was then that it struck me — that salsa wasn’t entirely mine.  It also may not be magic.  I am actually standing on the shoulders of one who so kindly bestowed culinary wisdom upon me many times (even at a late hour).

Mark Twain said that imitation is the most sincere form of flattery.  So may I say to everyone — Leanne Boone makes the most delicious salsa I have ever tasted.  The salsa I make only has legs because Leanne Boone taught it how to walk.*  This experience leads to…

Life Lesson #14

Never steal a recipe from the wife of your boss unless you are prepared to 1) give proper credit, 2) quit your job and start a salsa company or 3) go one on one with her in an illegal cage-fight match in Berlin hosted by your German friend.

*In case you missed it, it was Leanne’s recipe — I just tweaked it.

      I am going to leave that up to you Marie — you know the area better than I do AND you would know where I could make the most money cage-fighting.
