At the Beach, Interlude: Dawn of the Secret Monkey Clan
Seeking neither fame nor fortune, yet bound to fight oppression and evil in any form, and known only by a small (and sometimes invisible) monkey tattoo on the inside of their right wrist, they are...
The Secret Monkey Clan!
Pac-man filled arcades of yesteryear.
But, they still had skee ball, and some other fun stuff amidst the gambling games, so we gave each of the Zoomlians a buck to spend as they chose.
Playing games means winning tickets, and tickets mean prizes! The older Zoomians pooled tickets to get several things they liked, and Zorg chose a packet of tattoos.
He bypassed the dinosaur and rock n roll tattoos in favor of an animal pack showing a monkey.
Except it wasn't a pack of animal tattoos with a monkey on top.
It was a pack of 25 monkey tattoos!
What do you do with 25 monkey tattoos?
We took the obvious answer: form a Secret Monkey Clan of sworn brotherhood, and create a Secret Monkey Clan Dessert.
If you can keep a secret, here it is, if you are a clever enough monkey to figure it out:
Secret Dessert: Monkey Picks Two Peaches
Peel and slice 6 peaches into a pot.
Add sugar to taste (sour peaches= 1/2 c. sugar, sweet peaches = 1/4 c.)
Add 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice (cinnamon, ginger, cloves)
Simmer until peaches are soft, add 1 Tbsp vanilla.
Serve warm over vanilla ice cream!
