Seriously…seriously – this morning I almost felt like I lived in the rainforests of Brazil! My morning mom walk had all the elements: dense fog, low visibility, owls hooting, tons of species of birds singing, monkeys howling…haha, no monkeys – just checking to see if you’re paying attention! Seriously though, it was crazy – those birds were LOUD! My area has a dense fog advisory so visibility was basically nil and the birds were LOVING the moist air! After about 20 minutes of walking, I reached up to tuck some hair behind my ear, only to find that my hair was sopping wet! We were basically walking through a giant cloud – it was really cool 🙂
Here’s a webcam shot from my area – pretty exciting, huh?! 😉
So the day after I ask you if you want to see a stove-top oatmeal tutorial, I crave a smoothie for breakfast! A banana, strawberry and barney butter smoothie to be exact! No worries, I will post that tutorial ASAP!
So this smooooothie. I combined sliced strawberries, 1 medium banana, 1 big spoonful of smooth Barney Butter (seriously this stuff gets better every time I use it – thanks Mom and Dad!), ~1/2 cup milk and ~1 cup ice in a blender and blended until, well, it was smooth! This made a TON of smoothie, but don’t worry, I ate it all 🙂 You could really taste the Barney Butter and the banana helps make the consistency velvety smooth.
I absolutely adore smoothies. There’s something about blended, cold drinks that make me completely devour them in no time flat. Side note: not such a good thing when it comes to pina coladas! Additional side note: I have an amazing “light” pina colada recipe I will share with you this summer!
You know what? I looked around the house last night and again this morning to find something for lunch today…and I just couldn’t find anything I wanted! There’s nothing more pointless than eating something that you’re not going to enjoy – so I decided that today, I’m going to go find something that I want to eat – and have that for lunch! I’ll let you know what makes it to my table 🙂
Do you guys like smoothies? What are your favorite combos? I like:
- milk + banana + peanut butter + ice
- any fruit + juice/milk + ice
- cantaloupe + any flavor yogurt + ice
- any fruit + any flavor yogurt + ice
- mango + water + little sugar!!
- banana + honey + peanut butter + ice

…ok, I could literally go on forever! Have an amazing day, wherever you are!
