♥♥♥ A Smoothie in New Stemware ♥♥♥
First & foremost, I want to lift in prayers the people of Boston & West, TX...in fact, our whole nation, as we recover from yet another horrific incident. *sigh* My heart aches for the people injured & for the families who lost their loved ones.
I had this post ready to go before I left to care for my sister.
It seems so frivolous to be *playing with dishes* now but if
we don't carry on with our lives, then we've given in to them,
and I refuse!
I bought some pretty pink *bubble* stemmed glasses recently.
Just to have a reason to show them off, I made one of my
favorite fruit smoothies...Blueberry Banana!!
1 small container of fat free blueberry yogurt
1/2 of a small banana..(DH gets the other half on his cereal)
a large handful of frozen blueberries (from my sister's bushes)
Blend it all together with just a splash of skim milk so it mixes well. For the photo, I added a dollop of whipped cream but I
don't usually do that. I just wanted to make it pretty for YOU!
I went outside, looking for some mint sprigs to use, but they are not up yet.
That was when I decided to cut some of my hyacinths to add to the tray. Brilliant idea...now I need to go find my antihistamines again! ACHOO!!! I must be allergic to them.
Aren't the stems pretty? They remind me of champagne bubbles....hey, I wonder what THAT would taste like in it?? Hmmmmm...I may create a new 'breakfast of champions'
Thank you for all your prayers & good thoughts this week.
My sister Fritzie is doing quite well after her knee surgery.
So well, in fact, that she chased me home.
She is doing much better than my husband did after his, but she is a full decade younger than he was when he had his knee replacement done.
I sure hope I never need one!! Ugh!
I'm linking to Cuisine Kathleen's Let's Dish party &
The Tablescaper's Seasonal Sunday, too.
