Storms and Leaks

Aren’t cats tongues the craziest things?

PS- Eric has been really slacking in his photography lately and is the reason why we haven’t had our photography show down yet. Blame HIM! ;)

I’m glad you enjoyed my ‘Vlogging’ (video blogging) last night.

I have been meaning to do more vlogs for a while now, so with your extra encouragement I just might try to make it a more regular feature again. Vlogging has its’ pros and cons. The main pro is that I don’t have to type out a post. Lately my back has been sore because I basically hunch myself over the keyboard when I am typing. With blogging 3x a day, responding to emails, and working on Glo Bakery stuff, I spend a lot of time at my desk. So vlogging gives me a nice break and allows me to move my mouth! Which I don’t do much working from home. Aside from talking to Sketchie of course. ;) The main con is that videos take a lot of editing at times and require a long time to upload. For example, last night’s video took about 1.5 hours to process. Waiting on a video to upload is not fun, especially when I have general ‘time lines’ that I like to have my posts up by.

But, it’s fun. And it allows you to see that I’m a real person behind these words! So I will keep doing it every now and then to mix it up.

I had a lovely green monster this morning. Even despite MORE thunderstorms!!

I used two new ingredients that I have never used in a GM before- GRAPES and Gena’s ‘banana softserve’!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2-3/4 cup cup red organic grapes
  • 1 cup PC low fat soy milk
  • 1 scoop Ruth’s Hemp-Maca-E3Live powder (trying to use it up…blech!)
  • 1 T chia seeds
  • 3 cups lightly steamed spinach
  • 1/4 cup banana soft serve (see below)
  • 4 cubes ice

I totally forgot to blog about Gena’s banana softserve I made on the weekend!! It was nothing short of pure heavenly bliss. You seriously should try this if you haven’t already. All you do is freeze a banana or two (with skin removed! lol) and then pop the frozen bananas in a food processor for a couple minutes. The result is the most amazing creamy softserve you’ve probably ever tasted! AMAZING! I think I liked it better than any dairy or non dairy ice cream I have ever tried.

The banana softserve made the green monster REALLY creamy and cold. I loved it.

This green monster was good, but way too sweet! I think the grapes really put it over the top. Next time I would only use 1/4 cup probably.

Last night I was going through some wedding gift cards that we still haven’t used (I know- we are SO bad for not using gift cards up quickly!) and I really want to buy a juicer. I have wanted to make funky green juices since I read Kris Carr’s Crazy Sexy Cancer.

I know nothing about good brands and haven’t done any research but I thought I would do an unofficial poll and ask you juicer-lovers if you recommend any brands! So let me know if you recommend any in particular- OR if you have a ‘dud’ that you want to warn me about. ;)

Speaking of DUDS…I am highly disappointed in my Kitchen Aid Blender! It has been used for barely 7 months and it is already leaking (among other problems!):

Gross me out.

I actually just read some reviews on Amazon and apparently I am not the only one who has had this problem! The lid also doesn’t stay on properly so I have to stand there and hold it on.

Hrmph! I am going to call their customer service to see if they can send me a new one. Worth a shot, right?

Great Sketchie pic. How fantastic is he? and your photography too! Bummer about the blender…I’ve killed a few already but my grandparents got me this amazing one for my graduation from college and I’ve even made nut butters in it. It is the Breville iKon DieCast LCD Blender. I’m afraid they paid a ton for it, but it really is a great blender….my only suggestion is to use the “blade tool” to screw the blade back on-even though they say not to-cause I’m not strong enough to get it back on without it leaking otherwise. Have fun shopping!
