Breakfast is served~

Lately, I have been playing with my blender experimenting with different types of fruit and juices mixing and blending for a quick, healthy, pick me up fast breakfast! I have found so many different concoctions! I found a really simple one with very few ingredients in this book... Purple Monstrosity~
  • 2 frozen bananas chunked
  • 1/2 frozen cup blueberry's
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
  • 1 tbs honey (optional) I use two splendas
    Place all ingredients in blender and puree use more or less liquid depending on thickness. ( I also sometimes add frozen strawberry's to the mix) why not? Makes half a pitcher... This stuff is SO GOOD!! and keeps you full till way past lunch time.

    Attic ~ Fall bin ~ DUST.

    Three weeks ago I noticed my neighbors across the street had pulled out pumpkins, ghosts, and a flying witch. I thought it was a little too soon, but then again what do I know? I always wait for the first cold front to start getting into the groove of things to me, it just feels like fall when the weather changes! This morning I woke up thinking... I need to make a few changes maybe bring down the flag I was flying in honor of the 10Th anniversary of 911, and go into the scorching attic to bring down my Fall bin. Where did Summer go? As I was going up the attic ladder... I thought why don't we have an attic exhaust fan?... Sure let me just add that to the loooooooooooong list of projects we need around here.... Why not? Okay first off who is the owner of these chairs Mom, Mel, Bey, Ashley, St Paul's? And how in the world did they end up here? Look at all the DUST!! And of course the Fall bin has to be at the very back! It is about 125 degrees in here, I am now moving, organizing and rearranging stuff and, I am full of DUST... One thing leads to another.. went down to get wet rags with soap and a broom.. About half hour I am bringing this bin down it gets stuck on the ladder! It weighs a ton, and it won't budge!! about now a little voice inside me starts to speak. " You should of waited for Romeo like he told you too" After pushing ,shoving, and groaning while squeezing the bin gives!!! and comes right down, but now I'm exhausted and think I will let this bin sit here for a day or two. There is always tomorrow!
