Smoothie gone bad...


Oh, my goodness, last night I tried a new smoothie recipe and it was not good at all! I drank it because I did not want to waste the fruit, but I will NOT be making this one again!

I had a brilliant idea to make a coffee and cream smoothie. Now, this would not have been such a bad idea if I had used pumpkin puree with the coffee, but I used cherries and a dab of pineapple juice b/c there was no sugar in the coffee.

It would have been good if it did not have the coffee in it. Here is what I did (I do not recommend you try this recipe):



1 cup coffee, prepared with milk

1/4 cup pineapple juice

10 frozen dark cherries

3 frozen strawberries

1 banana

3 ice cubes

I blended everything together.

The coffee left a bitter taste in my mouth. If I had put sugar in the coffee it would have been better, but then I would be drinking all that sugar.

So, after my husband and I drank it anyway, he said: "I know what would be good, use sweetened condensed milk in it!" Oh, yeah and that would defeat the purpose of a healthy smoothie...is what I told him :)

Anyway, just thought I would share with you. We all makes mistakes you know!?

My new hair cut




Every so often I make a sudden decision to get all my hair cut off. Sunday was the big day. So, I left a message for Sheila at A Finishing Touch salon, off Trawick Rd in Raleigh. When she got in on Tuesday (because they are closed on Monday) she called me back and we set up my appointment for today!




She is fabulous! I showed her a picture and she cut it just the same! I did not get it styled so I let it dry by itself. You KNOW you have a great cut when it dries by itself and looks good!




Way to go Sheila!
