George's Salsa

3 medium sized ripe tomatos
1/2 of a medium onion chopped
2 medium cloves garlic minced
a handful of fresh parsley finely minced (I used about a tsp of dried)
a handful of fresh cilantro finely minced (I used about a tsp of dried)
1 tsp. cumin
3/4 to 1 tsp salt
1 TBS apple cider vinegar
1 TBS olive oil
1 TBS fresh lime juice
crushed red pepper to taste
1 tsp sugar

Drop the tomatoes into a potful of simmering water for 10 seconds or until the skin starts to split. Take them out and peel the skins. Dice them. Combine all ingredients in a small bowl or container (Don't use a metal container, even stainless steel, I usually use ceramic). Cover tightly and refrigerate overnight.

George's Pancake Mix

2 cups oatmeal
1/2 cup milk powder (I leave this out)
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup date sugar (optional)  (I usually leave this out, but I have used 1/8 cup table sugar and could not taste the difference if it was there or not)
1/4 cup currants or raisins (I use raisins, and have also tried blueberries)
1 TBSP sesame seeds
1 tsp baking powder
2 TBSP oil
1 egg (optional) (I leave this out)

Mix the oatmeal in a blender or processor until most of it is a flourlike consistency.  Leave a little of it unmixed.  Then combine all of the dry ingredients and mix.  Add 1-1/4 cups of water and mix.  Then add the oil and egg and mix again.  Let the mixture stand for at least 10 minutes.  During this time it will get very thick.  I always add a little water before cooking so it is a little thinner, but not nearly as thin as conventional pancake mix.  I heat the pan to medium and spray it with PAM and pour the mixture on, but then flatten it out with the turner (I usually make the mix thick enough that you cannot shake the pan to thin it out).  Then cook it on one side until it turns golden brown and then do the other side.  Sometimes I turn it a few more times after that to get the inside cooked fully, but if you leave the egg out, there is no danger in serving it a little mushy on the inside.

I left out the milk powder, sugar, and egg on the He-Man.
