Summer is on its way and that means summer produce is, too — and that makes me happy!
1) Still fighting a cough & congestion so I whipped up something I love this weekend — my “Hey Now Salsa” oh it is so stinkin’ good! Sent a container home with oldest son yesterday & kept one for me. Crunchy, fresh, zippy and delicious, it’s better every time I make it! And it’s going with me to top off my grilled chicken salad at lunch!
2) Bought myself a “Nutribullet” this weekend, too. Why? I frequent the farmers market but often find I can’t eat everything before it spoils. And spending all that money just to throw out wilted produce goes against my grain! I’d seen the infomercial so I did the research and found it locally at “Bed, Bath and Beyond.” With the the 20% coupon I found from last December I paid around $80 ~ ~ Did you know their coupons never expire? Yes they have expiration dates but the clerks just ignore them – sweet!
Yesterday I made my first smoothie which consisted of spinach, 1 pear, a handful of blueberries and raspberries, water & some chia seeds. Youngest kid liked the taste but couldn’t get past the green-ness of it. I loved it and a concoction like that will be my breakfast today. An extra 10lbs of winter pudge snuck onto my 5′ 3″ frame and I’m hopeful that these extra nutrients will help me not only shed the fluff + boost my immunity. This latest bout marks the 3rd time in 5 mos I’ve gotten sick with the same thing = time to pay attention, I think. I’ll share my thoughts and progress as I go 🙂
That’s my 2 for Tuesday — so, tell me, what gadget have you purchased recently? And, more importantly, did it work as promised?
