This post is kind of a mish-mash of things. Do y'all have a regular morning routine? I definitely do. One of the first things I do after the sun comes up (yes, I'm up before the sun most days) is raise all the blinds so Holly Joaquin can see out the windows. Umm...did I ever tell you her middle name is "Joaquin?" Yep. :)
She'll remind me to open the blinds if I forget. She also likes me to move a bar stool in front of the back door so she can see out that window too. Spoiled much?
So, I discovered these "pour and bake" brownies the other day...
I got them free at HEB when I bought their coffee pods. Love those "buy this, get that free" promotions. Anyway, you literally just have to pour and bake. Like, you just spray a baking pan, rip open the pouch, pour the liquid mix into the pan and bake. You don't have to add anything or mix anything up. Oh, and there's no refrigeration required, so you can store the pouch in your pantry until you use it. Such a great item to keep on hand for a quick batch of brownies when someone stops by for a visit. I hear Trader Joe's has their own brand of pour and bake brownies too. Good stuff!
So, now on to smoothies. Do y'all make them? Now, keep in mind, I'm not talking about the ever popular kale-inspired recipes. I'm talking old school here. I used to make these all the time when the boys were little and just started making them again. Here's what I use...
Basically, I put a handful of frozen strawberries, a handful of frozen blueberries, a container of yogurt of your choice (I used raspberry here), about 3/4 cup of milk, and one banana in my blender and whirl it all up together. This will make enough for two smoothies.
It's so good and is pretty healthy too. I like knowing that in that glass, there's a banana, strawberries, blueberries, yogurt, and some milk. Not a bad breakfast or snack if you ask me. :)
Y'all have a great weekend!
