A Mom's Worst Nightmare: Believe First, Judge Later

A mom posted yesterday that her son was missing. She posted this message and her plea for help and support on a very well-know forum for women. My heart broke for her when I read her plea. This is every mom's worst nightmare. Then I started reading the responses from others.

Drink Your Spinach {In This Banana Spinach Smoothie Recipe!}


Everyone could use a little spinach in their diets {okay, make thata lotof spinach.} I don't know about you, but I never have liked the taste of spinach. And I am not very good at incorporating this ultra healthy veggie into meals, with the one exception of Lasagna.

I do make a pretty mean spinach lasagna, if I say so myself.

This smoothie recipe uses spinach - which is a great thing for us. Even better is that this recipe also uses bananas and pineapple - which help hide the spinach flavor (for those of us who are a bit squeamish about spinach.)

Banana - Spinach Smoothie Recipe

What you will need:

1 cup low-fat or non-fat milk (if you like Almond milk, you should use it because it will give this smoothie extra sweetness!)

1 1/2 cups baby spinach  1 banana, peeled 3/4 pineapple - cut into very small pieces.

To Make:

Pour milk into blender and add spinach. Blend for a few seconds.

Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until smooth.

Drink and Enjoy!

Fleas and Coffee Don't Mix ( Really?}

I read an article recently on all natural products we can make at home and use instead of  buying chemical -laden products. Since we have two dogs and one princess cat, the coffee flea repellent caught my interest because we have two dogs and one princess cat.

Happy Fourth of July!

Hoping everyone enjoys fun, family and laughter today!


{and some cool fireworks ,too!}
