Recipe of the Week - Chocolate Berry Almond Smoothie

Recently we purchased a Vitamix blender and we LOVE it!  I make everything from smoothies to soups, to dips and everything in between.  I use it daily.  It was an investment but it was well worth it.  It's wonderful for homemade hummus, mashed cauliflower and I even prepare my own flours and nut butters.

Crazy Times

The last two weeks have been crazy busy for me so I apologize for my lack of posting.  I'll try to update you quickly on how things are and what I have learned . . .

Always Save

Not what I thought this would be . . .

Hello everyone!  This post was going to be a pretty long post that I had been working on for an hour, yeah an hour.  I was just so into writing.  After an hour Microsoft Word shuts down on me and of course I had not saved.  None of the adorable little antidotes, object lessons and stories I had for you had been saved.  L  Maybe it was God’s way of telling me I was, once again, talking too much.  Maybe it was just a reminder of something I learned in junior high computer class ~ ALWAYS SAVE!!!
