Oh, hey guys. Remember me?
I’m so excited to announce that we are officially moved into our new apartment–it’s definitely not my dream home, but it has a dishwasher, washer and dryer, nicer kitchen appliances, a big closet to house my
shopping addiction clothes, and a little more room to wander around in. Meaning that our kitchen, living room, and dining room are not one room as it was in our last apartment.
In fact, I sometimes catch Fritz wandering around looking for me like a little lost child. Not sure how he will handle a move to a big-boy house.
Anyway, we are still waiting for the landlord to hook up the internet (hopefully this weekend) so I get it in the whole house and not just in our dining room. Now that the kitchen is all unpacked, the internet is partially good to go, and I’ve been grocery shopping–the blogging can make triumphant return.
Pictures of the apartment to come in the future. Until then, since I went for a few days eating pizza and almost no vegetables, I started craving green monsters hard core…and thought of a new one!
Banana Bread Green Monster (serves two…or one very thirsty lady)
- 1 ripe banana, frozen (peel before freezing!)
- 1 C milk
- 2 handfuls spinach leaves (I use fresh)
- 1/4 C walnuts
- 1/4 C oats
- sprinkle of cinnamon
My first though upon making this was, “how the heck have I never thought of this before?!”
Combine the ingredients in your blender, light stuff on bottom (spinach, oats, cinnamon, walnuts), heavy stuff on top (banana–and ice, if you use it), and pour the milk over the top.
Blend the heck out of it until it’s nice and smooth.
Gosh, I’ve missed green monsters. It feels so good to have the kitchen set up again!
This one tastes just slightly nutty from the walnuts and the oats, and was very filling. Best part was how banana-bready it tasted!
You could add some ground flaxseed, too, or vanilla, or whatever else makes you think of banana bread.
Try not to kiss your blender.
