I didn't really get snowed IN in Bellingham, but I did get snowed OUT of Freshwater Bay Road. My Thanksgiving Celebration with Dearbhla was extended by four days (which was fine with me!) We had lots of fun, I got to go to Target and squeezed in a trip to my favorite Goodwill. Gus missed Trent horribly. His moods swung accordingly. The forbidden words "dumb" and "stupid" were in frequent use, as was the not forbidden though overused word "annoying".
Dearbhla makes these ridiculous Vegetable Smoothies and the idea has taken hold in our house, with even neighbor kids coming by to drink the bright green, veggie packed, mineral rich, icy slush! Trent is reluctant but I added extra fruit to yesterday's and he admitted it was "okay". Food color can be a powerful stimulant or an even more powerful depressant!!! A bright green drink is a hard sell, but four out of six of us are on board. Gene likes it because I told him : "you drink this and you don't have to eat another vegetable for the rest of the day". Here's the ingredient lineup:
Kale, Handful of raw almonds, celery, apple, pear, banana, squeeze of lemon juice, tablespoon of honey, strawberries, ice.
The look is "yuck". The taste is surprisingly fruity. The boys still agree that "chugging" it is the only way to get it down!
