Benadryl, Mango Salsa and Hair

Time to sweep up your bloggy crumbs and offer them up for Friday Fragments over at Half-Past Kissin' Time. Just click below to join in and link up..

Half-Past Kissin' Time
1. I wonder how much Benadryl I would have to give my girls to get them to stay still long enough for me to try THIS on their rebellious hair?
2. Please don't send me hate mail. I would never coax my girls still with the help of Benadryl just for a cool hair do. What kind of mother do you think I am?
See! I am too busy feeding the baby suckers laced with red dye #40 and letting her use her sticky hands as hair gel on her shaggy bangs.

3. Mango Salsa goes with everything. Spoon it on tilapia or mix it with tuna/chicken and stuff it in a pita. It's healthy but I love it anyway. Plus you can always grease it up by eating it on cheese loaded nachos. Yummy and mangolicious!

Mango Salsa Recipe

2 ripe mangos (peeled and chopped) 2 TBS cilantro (chopped)
1 Red Bell Pepper (chopped)
1/2 Red Onion (diced)
1 Jalapeno (diced)
1 TBS Lemon juice
2 TBS Lime juice

Salt and pepper to taste and then toss. Voila!

I was SO about to ask you for the recipe, and then Voila, you gave it to me! Thanks! I am definitely going to try that with our salmon the next time we make it. Looks yummy. And the hair thing? She's cute enough; gorgeous hair would only detract from her charming cuteness. :)

So...does it work? The benadryl? Just hoping I mean ASKING. Great, great photos.

Emily said...

Tranquility said...

Oh my gosh - I can hardly believe those hair dos... and more amazing is that the kids sit still long enough for them.

Oooooh... that mango recipe sound so good. I might even stop at the store on the way home and grab the fixings!!

It's so funny, I was craving mango salsa the other day when I was at the green grocer. Almost brought home a mango for hubby to create with! Now I'm definitely getting that mango.

Benedryl and suckers...perfect!

And, I just recently had mango salsa and loved it. But this one was sans onions and had pineapple...I bet you could find some of that around your neck of the woods!

Heather said...

I love mango salsa. Absolutely love it. And my girls would no way no how sit and let me do that to their hair. They don't have enough hair to do that. And I don't have enough finger muscles.
