Our family thrives on it, and my husband loves coming home to the aroma of home-baked breads, but I haven’t been making them since I usually end up eating more than everybody else, and well, you know… that’s not a good thing. Since I’ll be away for a few days, I decided to bake them a couple of loaves of their favorite Maple Oatmeal Bread.
That should keep them fed until I get back. (And maybe a couple of trips to Chipotle.)
I also had to write down how to make their favorite smoothie so that they could still enjoy them while I’m gone. Here goes
Mom’s Best Smoothie:
1 cup frozen blueberries
3 frozen bananas, cut
1- 1 1/2 cups orange juice
1/2 cup soymilk
ground flaxseeds, or flax oil
I don’t really measure everything but for the sake of instruction, here it is. I have a Vitamix, but if a high quality blender is not available, just leave everything in the blender and wait a few minutes before blending so that it’s not so hard on the motor.
Add soy ice cream, or a tablespoon or two of coconut milk for a richer smoothie. Enjoy!
Sunday: While at Salt Lake City, I received a text message from dh saying that he just made smoothie, and that it was very good! (Now I’m just glad to be home… and it looks like they are, too.)
