Sorry for the delay in posting. We went to Toronto for my BFF’s birthday party. Toronto (my hometown) is the best—and as far as I can tell, the only—city in Canada, and everything about it is 1,000,000 X superior to Ottawa, mostly because the entire city (Ottawa) supports the wrong hockey team!! That’s right, I said it. It is also probably the centre of the universe. I knew I was home when we nearly got killed on the 401 highway by a Scarborough driver who decided to displace our car by veering into it without signalling or even checking his mirrors. Oh, Toronto.
But just to backtrack a couple days, we had celebratory smoothies on Tuesday. The celebration?? A new blender!!
You may recall in my last post, I made falafels and using an electric mixer instead of a blender. Life really isn’t so hard without a blender, with two exceptions: hummus and smoothies. I eat buckets of the former so we eventually caved and put $15 down at the ol’ Wal Mart on a blender.
Ingredients: frozen berries, bananas, Earthshake Soy and Oat beverage, cocoa powder, and Dutch chocolate vodka
I got those little umbrellas at the dollar store. Cute, no?
