So, I had planned to make pico de gallo (hope I spelled that a little bit right) to console myself after my less than stellar day (more on that later). But now I hear that my jalapeños may be carriers of the dreaded salmonella. As I no longer trust the FDA to warn me of actual food dangers (how many tomatoes were dumped when nothing was wrong with them, and how many farmers lost how much money?), and as I have no intention of giving up produce, I am going to make and eat it anyway.
That being said, if I die from the aforementioned salmonella, please find a disgruntled tomato farmer, and hit the FDA with a sizable lawsuit.
