What’s Cooking!

Hello all,
So I’ve recently been practicing my baking skills. I recently offered to host Thanksgiving at our place so we could showcase our new 6tf antique dining table and bench. I also did this because I love anything pumpkin and right now is a great season to try new recipes.
I tried a new recipe last night from an old family recipe book (not mine) I found antiquing. They turned out great!

My cooking essentials. Beer, measuring cups, measuring spoons, cook book and a taste test. Batch one good to go 🙂

Green Monster

Posted on

Hi all
Sorry for the lack in posts recently. I’ve recently been in a weather rut. Today I am going to do a little post on healthy eating. Over the last few weeks I have been drinking these shakes I discovered online. Its called the Green Monster Movement. Basically what it is, is a homemade shake you drink to start off your day. Since I’ve started I must say that my energy levels are up and I feel great.

Tada! Here it is. The Green Monster.

Ingredients
2 cups of fresh spinach
1- 1 1/2 cups of milk, soy milk, almond milk
1 banana
Ice cubes
1-2 tablespoons of flax or Chia (I use both)
And that’s it. It literally take 5 mins to make and its a nice healthy breakfast.
If your not a huge  of the flavor just add 1/2 a cup of fruit juice.

I know its not much to look at but the flavor and benefits are worth it!

Happy Friday!
