Need a laugh...?

This site hasn't failed me yet. Maybe other people's ridiculous problems help make mine seem more insignificant, or maybe I should just admit to getting a kick out of the stupidity of others...either way, I highly recommend this site for a giggle or two throughout the day. Let me know if anybody orders a T-Shirt (you'll know what I mean when you get there).

Green Smoothie, raw diet

I bought a big bag of washed and chopped kale at the food lion yesterday so I could try out a Green Smoothie! I've heard lots of good things about smoothies, but even more good info and health benefits for green smoothies. I didn't exactly follow any of the recipes online, not you expected I would:') I started with one cored apple, one banana, one peeled orange, a couple of handfuls of mixed frozen fruit, blended that up and gave some of that mixture to chuck and brett. I wanted them to have some smoothie w/out subjecting them to my green experiment. Then I added about 3 cups of water and as much of the kale that I could jam into the blender. Zipped it up and voila! Green drink! I actually like it a lot.. Charlie tasted and didn't seem entirely pleased, but he'll come around:')
There is tons of info on the internet about green smoothies, a lot stemming from Dr. Oz's appearance on the Oprah Winfrey show. I did find this neat blog that I like called Happy Foodie. The author has a few other blogs that are interesting. I'd like to eat a more raw diet, so I'm trying to learn some new routines...

salad table, baby spinach

it is so much fun to watch all the salad fixin's growing! Check out the growth on the baby spinach! I just can't wait to eat it up! The leaf lettuce and rocket salad is doing quite well, also.
