It's Smoothie Saturday!!
I think I'm going to like drinking these things!
They're yummy, filling and good for you.
I don't need dinner now that today's smoothie filled my tummy up.
And I felt like I was in the tropics while I was drinking it.
Ok, not really, but the flavors kind of reminded me of it...
It would have been nice to have been swaying in a hammock on a beautiful beach, a tropical breeze caressing my fair skin, sand in between my toes, an appointment with the handsome Amadeo for a hot stone massage at 1 pm, followed by a mani / pedi, dinner reservations on the porch of a 5 star restaurant at 6 pm with a gorgeous view of the sunset over the water, a walk hand in hand with my wonderful husband down the beach under a full moon, ended with a peaceful night of sleeping in our over-the-water bungalow while the waves lap gently below us.
*shaking her head and coming back to reality*
Oh, oh, sorry. I started daydreaming a bit there and really lost it with the thought of that handsome tall, dark man giving me a massage. Yes, I know I'm married, and quite happily, too.
I'm still human though!
Don't worry, there's NO way I'd jeopardize my marriage and my family. I am COMPLETELY blessed and I know it.
Besides, that sand between the toes thing really made my skin crawl anyway.
I can't STAND the feeling of sand between my toes!!!!!
And I was raised on a beach.
Ok, not on necessarily, but like, on the edge.
Reminds me of the movie Shrek, "I'm a donkey on the edge!"
At least I'm entertaining, right?
Pineapple Mango Smoothie - serves 1
1 mango, peeled and diced
1 cup pineapple, diced (I used canned)
2/3 cup crushed ice
1/2 cup pineapple juice (yes, from that can)
2 tablespoons Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon flaxseed meal
Combine all ingredients in a blender and mix on high until smooth.
Pour into a glass (or if you want you can drink it from the blender. I won't tell.)
It actually made more than is in this glass, I just did this for photo purposes. It probably amounted to 2 1/2 of these glasses.
I rate everything I make on a scale of 1-4 and this Pineapple Mango Smoothie earned 3 1/2 rolling pins.
Sounds weird giving a smoothie rolling pins.
I think it should be a straw rating.
I don't know if that would confuse people.
What do you think, rolling pins or straws for Smoothie Saturdays?
Alright, I'm off.
I'm playing my son in a mean game of Words with Friends and I'm in it to win it, man!
I'm kidding. That's a mean thing for a mother to say.
I should be encouraging and loving and building my child's self-esteem.
C-H-A-I-N-S for triple word, boy!! BOO YAH!!
LOVE YOU ALL!!!
I give you BIG baking hugs and muffins!!
