What we eat

I should just mention that while TR is away we eat awful!  Half the time I forget to make supper until 5pm.  We're so busy playing outside and I have not been taking meat out in the morning.  This evening we had mango smoothie and chips with cheese (I also had salsa but the kids don't like it).  Not exactly a square meal, but it did the trick.  Benjamin also had a peanut butter and honey sandwich.

Mango Smoothie
~ Frozen mango pieces, slightly thawed 
(I had mine on the counter for about 30 minutes)
~ Pineapple juice
~ Yogurt or cream (or both :)
Blend all ingredients together. (I use a food processor 
but I'm guessing a blender would work)
  Eat with a spoon and enjoy :)

Depending on how frozen your fruit is will depend on
how much liquid you need to add.  I don't like doing
lots of juice, but a little does help thin it out a little.  
We always like eating it with a spoon, but if you
like to drink it you'll need to add more liquid.  
Last fall I bought cases of mangoes and cut
them up and froze them so we've been 
enjoying this smoothie over the winter.  


  1. Mmmm, sounds yummy. I'd add in a few tablespoons of hemp hearts, and there you have a meal in a cup since hemp hearts have so much protein and omegas and fiber and minerals.
    i always eat weird when Rob's away too.

  2. I have never eaten hemp hearts!


I'd love to hear from you!
