Okay, I saw the added video on Nick's last post, and I say we punish him by commenting on it HERE instead of on HIS post. I see no reason to reward his behavior!
Oh, did you know that if you google "Hot Monkey Sex" only olsteen you DO NOT get to HLAC?

I'm all for entertainment, but who has that kind of time?

Clearly, this is why the Japanese are beating us.

Forgive me. I am beaming with pride at my Japanese heritage. I'm a little veclempt...talk amongst yourselves...

@Steph, hence, Katdish is "beating" us

You know I'd probably to the salsa if monkey's did that to my butt.

I think the monkey's are beating us. I'll have to research it though. They are even spreading to other posts. Weird. I wonder if the ninja squirrels are helping them.

Candy, I want to make a fruity non tomato (because my husband can't have tomato) salsa. I know you make a fruity salsa to go with your fish tacos. How do you think this sounds? I really value your opinion.


Ingredients

2 cups chopped, peeled fresh peaches

1/4 cup chopped sweet onion

3 Tablespoon lime juice

2 to 3 Tablespoon finely chopped, seeded fresh jalapeno pepper

1 clove garlic, minced

1 Tablespoon snipped fresh cilantro

1/2 tsp. sugar

In a medium mixing bowl stir together peaches, onion, lime juice, peppers, garlic, cilantro, and sugar. Cover and chill for 1 to 2 hours.

Makes 2 cups.

Ewww - Helen suckered me in to coming back here to comment on salsa....

NO MO' MONKEY BUTTS!!! And please pass the Sani-Wipes.

IF you were serious Helen (doubtful at this point that word should be used here...) oh yes, that's a delightful recipe. BUT YOU TRICKED ME. I'm sharing my very similar Mango Salsa recipe anyway. So put that in your food processor and pulse it.

1 Ripe Mango, peeled, pitted, and diced (about 1 1/2 cup)
1/2 Medium Red Onion, finely chopped
1 JalapeƱo Chile, minced (include ribs and seeds for a hotter taste if desired)
1 Small Cucumber, peeled and diced (about 1 cup)
3 Tbsp Fresh Cilantro Leaves, chopped
3 Tbsp Fresh Lime Juice

Aren't you glad I left in the directions to peel and pit the mango? I mean, have you ever had a mango pit?

Helen said...

Candy, I din't mean to trick you. I was trying to steer us clear of Nick's monkey butt. Yes. That is what I was trying to do. I, too, am tire of Nick's Monkey Butt. Nick's Monkey butt is getting irksome. Nick's monkey butt Nick's monkey butt Nick's monkey butt.

Helen said...

With a little bit of efffort, we can be number one for googlers of Nick's monkey butt.

Helen said...

Nick's monkey butt.

Nick the Geek said...

I still blame katdish.

Helen said...

Nick's monkey butt!

Helen said...

Feel better now, Candy?
I will keep commenting "Nick's monkey butt" until you forgive me....
because I DID NOT know that was there! Honest.


NICK'S MONKEY BUTT!

It's like an Asian Zamfir plays Bugs Bunny in the new Broadway production of Rabbit of Seville.

OK, I tried googling "Nick's monkey butt" but all I got was some anti monkey butt powder which may be good ammo for a monkey butt powder cannon.

You are forgiven, Helen. You did it from your heart. Be sure to wash your hands before making your fruit salsa, just to humor me.

Nick's Monkey Butt

Was is from her heart or from a great big monkey butt heart?

PS I didn't put that latest image up, but I wish I did.
