From Pretty to Ugly

Sometimes you need a bit of ugly in your life, especially when ugly comes from heaps of spinach. The Aussie made an amazing smoothie today--pineapple, oj, strawberries, banana, xantham gum, ice, water, and SPINACH.

It went from this color . . .


To this color . . .


Pineapple makes a smoothie taste so wonderful. My one problem was that the pineapple was in one big chunk. Seriously Wholefoods you can charge 5 dollars for pineapple but not slice it?

In addition to the smoothie the Aussie and I have a lovely salad-type creation--red pepper, yellow pepper, yellow tomato, avocado, brown rice, quinoa, pinto beans, and lime juice. It was delish.


Dessert was inspired by Julie (http://peanutbutterfingers.wordpress.com/)


That's a finger of dark choc dreams dipped into choc chips, and it was glorious.

Off to do wedding stuff (or watch trashy TV),
