Mango Salsa

There are like, a million flies in my house right now. You would honestly think that horses were dumping in our house by the amount of flies that are inhabiting the space at the moment. Thankfully, it does not smell that way. But WTF? They’ve taken over. Probably because it’s 85 degrees in our house. Similar to the temperature of horse poo. At least, that’s what I’m guessing. So you know what we did? We bought that nasty ass looking fly tape, hung it up all over our house and put another air conditioning unit in a window. There are only a few left. The rest are wiggling their legs while stuck to the tape. That sh*t is like super glue. I feel kind of bad for them, but then, not really because they were antagonizing me while I cooked in the kitchen. RIP flies. RIP.

Ok, so I’m trying to get into some shows. I haven’t really watched any shows since the last New Girl season ended. I hate when seasons end for the summer. Not really, because summer is so wonderful, but it is still slightly sad. So I’m trying to take up 2 shows. The first is Dexter. I used to watch Dexter years and years ago, when the first season had just come out, but it got a little intense. So I’ve watched seasons 1 and 2, part of 3, and part of 5. But when they started killing women and putting them in barrels, I was out. I’d like to keep my nightmares to a low. BUT, I’m going to try it one last time. Especially since it’s the last season. I’m trying to stick with it, but daaaaaamn is Deb a downer. I hate downers. They’re such, downers. She’s probably a downer because she was married in real life to the guy that is her brother on the show. Then they got divorced. What an awkward work environment. But I’m going to stick with it. I believe in you Deb. Just please stop using the F word so much. And that’s coming from me, who says it A LOT.

Enough about Dexter. The other new show I just got into is Ray Donovan. The gist of it is that Ray works for hollywood stars and cleans up their messes. Like if they make a sex tape, he makes sure it doesn’t leak out to the public. Or if the star has a stalker, he takes care of it. It’s all very risqué. I dig it. Good ole’ Showtime series. They always have such dramatic stuff. Drama is so fun. People who say they don’t like drama are liars. And dramatic. #factoftheday

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. I LOVE Ray Donovan!!!! So glad someone else is talking about this awesome show.

    Can’t wait to order the long sleeve shirt… super cute. Thanks for the mango salsa recipe, going to try it this weekend!

    Okay… I think that’s it.

  2. I watched the first season and part of season two of Dexter. I just couldn’t get excited about it. I did like it but my time is limited. If you haven’t watched Lost then you are CRAZY! My husband and I spent 6 months of our lives watching one episode of Lost each night after we put the kids to bed. It was so sad when it was over haha. It’s also on Netflix 🙂

    1. Dude I just got into LOST this week! I had to find something to live for since Mad Men and Game of Thrones ended. It’s really good – I recommend!

  3. Looovveee Dexter. But you are so right about Deb. Try Scandal!!! Kerry Washington is awesome. Homeland is also amazing.

  4. Watch LOST! You will never, ever want to watch another show again. It’s that good. Then, when it’s over, you’ll yell at me for getting you into it because it’s THAT DAMN CONFUSING. Worth it though.

  5. Totally love Dexter! I’ve been an avid watcher since the get…this season should be amaze…
    Homeland is sick to death! I devoured both seasons in two weekends:/
    Love Love the dolman shirt!
    Your blog makes me laugh out loud at ‘lolling’ –awko taco:)

  6. I love Dexter even though it scares the crap out of me! I only watch it on nights that I spend with my boyfriend because I will otherwise get scared at night!!

  7. I am in love with Dexter ever since season 1. Will have to say last season I hated…bringing Deb into the know of Dexters secret really sucked. But I suppose it was all a lead up to this final season. It’s a ritual in our house every Sunday during Dexter to have a big glass of red wine…seems appropriate…lol Anyway..I hate getting into summer shows because we’re always so busy so having Dexter start early really throws me off. Can’t wait for Homeland to start again. I couldn’t get into Lost…drove me crazy…I wanted to know the answer and I’m not good at suspense…hence my disapproval of How I met your mother…who’s the dang mother already??!! Thanks for the recipe…gonna try it for our house boat trip next weekend!

  8. I love mango salsa…mmm! Also, I thought your first sentence said “there are like, a million FIRES in my house right now”. I thought…what? 🙂

  9. Already ordered my pink tank after the first mention of the new clothes about a week or so ago! It should be in my mailbox when I get home! =)) So excited about the expanded options! I LIVE in my burnout tanks being from AZ and all!

  10. Not to be a downer but sometimes a sudden onslaught of flies means something died somewhere! I’d take a good look around the house to make sure a small rodent didn’t meet an untimely demise!

    1. If you have a fireplace, check there! We had a bird die in there once and we had a bazillion flies in the house. Good luck!!

  11. So I really REALLY want one of those slouchy sweatshirts – and perhaps it’s just my shotty inter-web connection but when I got to buy it my instructions are “First select a size” and then the drop down offers…no option but “first select a size”…?

  12. Watch “the killing”…it is an AMC show..sounds awful and morbid but it is a crime show–super interesting and keeps you wanting more.

    Where can I find or how can I make those plantain chips?

  13. Ooh, if you are into edgy drama, you might like Breaking Bad. The very first episode is truly over the top, kinda like a weed-out episode to drive away soft-hearted viewers. But then after that it starts to get much better and a bit more nuanced. It’s on Netflix.

  14. I don’t watch tv (well, ok….maybe I watched The Office on Hulu), but your mango salsa sounds great! And nice job on the tank tops with the forks on the back – love it!

  15. Ok, I’m gonna be the brat in this thread. LOVE the new colors and want to represent paleomg to the world (I love your cookbook), but I have one request. Purple?

  16. Yummy recipe perfect for summah!! And LOVE the shirts! I dig what the guys are saying about shirts for them but seriously most of the time the women end up with a smaller version of a man’s shirt instead of something that actually fits us! Totally going to rock the off the shoulder look!

  17. Juli,

    Okay..I read this online so I knew it to be true…right?! I tried it at home and it is working amazing!! This will get rid of your flies…

    First, take a ziploc bag and fill it half way with water. Then drop in 4 or 5 pennies. Not sure if you live in an apt or house or what…but I hung my bag in the garage by my garbage cans and now the flies are gone!!

    Give it a try…let me know how it works!


    PS I heart you!
