St. Paddy’s Breakfast and a swap!


I would have gotten a better photo, but I was up and ready to drink this before sunrise.  Don’t be alarmed; it’s actually a green smoothie!  I’ve been trying to drink one every day to get my leafy greens in–you see, I hate salads.  From time to time, I’ll order one in a restaurant (sometimes because it sounds delish, sometimes because it’s my only option) but make one at home?  Crazy talk!  Yesterday’s was frozen pineapple, baby spinach, a splash of lemonade, and water.  My favorite so far is frozen mango, baby spinach, and orange juice.  Throw it all in a blender and you’re set.  Yum.

Lots of secret knitting stuff going on; in a pattern-writing and sample-knitting-slog this week.  I need to wrap it all up before the weekend because I’m itching to finish up Dax’s Loch Ness Monster and all that’s left on Chris’s hat is weaving in ends and blocking.  And I just signed up for a really fun swap; Adrian and Maritzaare organizing a crochet pot-holder/hot pad swap!  Sign-ups are through the 21st, so hop on over to the blog for details!

    It doesn’t look too appetizing, but the other ingredients (the non green ones) sound good. Do they effectively mask the veggie taste?

    Secret knitting, huh? Intriguing. Can’t wait until the reveals! :)

    Yep, the fruit pretty much covers up the spinach taste if you put enough in! Baby spinach has a mild flavor too, so that helps.

    If you want to really YUM it up add some Plain Whole Milk Yogurt…I love the pot holder idea–Where do you get the time?Silly Question–Knitters always find the time to knit….
