Truth in advertising: I DO love my nuts

    I was in the mood for Vietnamese food tonight. Since Vietnamese food is about as easy to come by where I live as figure skating wardrobe restraint is at the Olympics, I had to improvise.

    I bought some vermicelli, some of that Vietnamese chili sauce and some cashews. No meat today, it's Lent, so I figured I'd sprinkle the cashews over the noodles and sauce and ... voila! ... instant ersatz-Saigon cafe meal.

    Obviously the noodles and chili sauce were mega-easy, but who wants to chop up cashews just for a post-work meal? No problem ... I have a Slap Chop.

    Did I say I have a Slap Chop? Oh no, no. I have three Slap Chops.

    Why? I thought it would be cool on Mrs. Bubbler's birthday last year for my kids -- aged 7 and 6 -- to get mom a Slap Chop. My kids thought it was awesome and it made for a cute moment when my kids gave mom their kind of funny TV present.

    Only ... I'm an idiot. When I tried to order the Slap Chop, I went to the Slap Chop web site and they had some two-for-one deal going. I went through the process of buying it, but then, whatever company makes those things kept asking for more and more information. I backed out of the sale and bought one at QVC or something.

    At least I thought I backed out of the sale, until two weeks later, when two more Slap Chops arrived. I never recalled giving them any credit card number, but here they were.

    Until today, I had never used any of them. So I whipped one my Slap Chops out of our formidable Slap Chop arsenal and went to work on my nuts.

    I have to say ... the stupid thing really worked well. Those cashews chopped up very, very nicely and were the perfect little touch to my fake-ass Vietnamese meal.

    So here's to you, Slap Chop. I really do love my nuts.

    I like the new Slap Chop commercial where they have run Vince's voice through autotune.
