Tomorrow is Native American Day!
Since it is tomorrow, my grandmother is here on the bloggie!
A picture of her at least.
Remember when I told you my grandma was an adopted Hopi Indian?
There she is — headdress and all!
I love you Grandma. <3
Want my secret for a perfect green smoothie every time?
I use almond milk, like ½ of a 14oz bag (or more) of fresh spinach, a small apple, AND a small banana. The apple and banana combination gives the smoothie the PERFECT sweetness EVERY time. J
Here’s my Cinnamon Raisin Walnut Butter. My secret to less time required for turning the nuts into buttah? I let the nuts cool down BEFORE I start processing. I let them cool down on the baking sheet for like two hours and I’m telling you, NO MORE STANDING AT THE BLENDER FOR FOREVER!!! J You could even toast them the night before and they’ll be perfect for the next day.
Have you ever wanted to have BUTTERFLY-shaped pancakes?
Do you want my secret for the cutest butterfly pancakes ever?
Use a teaspoon worth of pancake batter for the body (lay the batter on in a line) and a teaspoon each worth of batter for each half of the wings (lay the batter in a circular shape connecting with the body). Then flip like regular pancakes – be gentle with them though. Butterflies are tender creatures you know.
These butterflies are topped with my Devilish Chocolate Dream Almond Butter, strawberry preserves, chocolate chips, and shredded coconut.
I had to eat these babes fast – I was afraid they would fly off my plate.
Talking about butterflies…
Did you know I used to be AFRAID of butterflies when I was a child?
I would walk into a butterfly house and FREAK OUT. I would always come out of there crying and never wanting to go back in. Then I found out that no, they don’t eat little girls. Now, it’s mosquitoes that I freak out about.
I want to hear from you.
Do you have a secret? Did you know that I hyperventilate every time I have blood taken? That I have a sensitivity to mosquito bites?
Favorite food shown? I’m loving the lil’ butterfly pancakes myself.
Green Smoothies or Nut Buttah? Oh gosh, I would say ….. hmmmmm …… nut buttah? But I like green smoothies too!
