Number 4? Check!

Remember that tv show from the 1980's called "Head of the Class"? It was about these nerds smart kids (and one misunderstood rebel) in an advanced class in their high school. If I had been alive in the 80's (I totally wasn't - I'm really very young), I would have been in that class without a doubt and here's why! You know how I made a list of ten things I want to do in 2013 the other day? Well get this: I already crossed one off!

Luckily I have wonderful friends who offered to help me check some things off the list. So tonight, before heading to a Monster truck rally (more on that later), Sara cooked us up an amazing dinner and made us veggie based smoothies to drink, which was number 4 on my list. I was nervous because #1. I hate V8, number #2, I've never had a veggie smoothie before, and #3, the drink was green.

BUT, it was ah-mazing.

I guzzled it down so fast! She made it with pineapples, orange juice (just a little), frozen mango, and spinach. It. Was. Divine. Here are some pics:

You can see Sara handing us our smoothies, then the very fast progression of the disappearance of mine. Thank you Sara!

Do you make smoothies? What's your best smoothie recipe?

I looooove smoothies. I've often thought of adding spinach, but haven't yet! I like to make mine with frozen berries of any kind, or cherries, or peaches, etc (I just get them in the frozen food section). Then I'll usually add a banana (or just a half) or other non-frozen fruit I have around, some milk or yogurt, and a squirt of chocolate sauce. Oh, and honey!! I've made them with frozen OJ before, too, instead of the milk. I love smoothies. Wait, did I mention that already? Congrats on the milestone!!
