My excellent friend Chris just sent me a wonderful birthday gift: 5 assorted jugs of Red Monkey Spice Rubs! I have salivated copiously when reading of these spice rubs on his blog! I am most eager to put them to use! There is: Lemon Pepper, Barbeque Spice, Mango Habanera, Cajun Spice, and Savory Steak! I am drooling uncontrollably while fondling the jugs. I must go.
