a nice rawish salsa type thingy

i had three yellow tomatoes and went crazy by throwing them together with some chopped red onion, cilantro, cukes, green pepper, dried garlic granules, chipotle ms. dash, cinnamon, lime juice, and some sea salt. i think it's mostly raw, but not sure dried garlic and cinnamon count. close enough, right? what a lovely relish this is. perfect for topping a baked tater, sitting on top of a chip, or by the spoonful.

chocolate covered katie is always talking about her chocolate covered song of the day, and i thought of the following song when i think about my beautiful vegan life. it's by the barenaked ladies-(i'm not a huge fan of their work, but the song is awfully cute) and it's from their "snacktime" album:

The houses are built with leafy lettuce.
The light posts are all rubbery asparagus, in Vegetable Town.
The roads are paved with sautéed onions.
Community hall is a hollow pumpkin, in Vegetable Town.

Won't you walk with me down to Vegetable Town?
Won't you walk with me down to Vegetable Town?
Where we can ride the zucchini subway,
or watch the carrot planes land on the runway.
In Vegetable Town. In Vegetable Town.

Would you walk with me down to Vegetable Town?
Would you walk with me down to Vegetable Town?
In Vegetable town. In Vegetable Town.
Would you walk with me down to Vegetable Town?
