Happy Friday everyone! See the excitement in Maggie's eye that this is Friday. :o)
Maggie doesn't know that she'll be home by herself most of they day Saturday though. :( We are taking a motorcycle ride with some other couples tomorrow in this terribly hot weather. This was the temp on my way home at 5:30 Thursday...now that's just too darn hot! I hope it's not this hot tomorrow.
So, what do you do when it's so hot out? You cool off with this yummy smoothie that I made with flavored coconut water. This is by far one of my favorite smoothies. I made this one with acai / pomegranate coconut water.
Beat The Heat Smoothie
1 frozen banana
hand full of frozen mango chunks
3 tablespoons hemp seeds
1 11.2 oz container Vita Coco Acai & Pomegranate coconut water
Throw everything into the blender and blend until smooth and creamy. This smoothie didn't last long at all. I think it was gone in 5 minutes. Usually my smoothies last about 30 minutes, because I drink them on the way to work.
This week was the first time that I've tried the flavored coconut waters, and I have to say...I'm lovin em!
Wednesday night we had hot dogs. When I was at Kroger over the weekend I found some Smart Dogs. I was so excited when I saw them. I know that's crazy, but when you live in a place where vegan foods like this are rare to come by, you get excited when you see them. This particular Kroger has added several new vegan products, which is great since I don't get to make the 1 hour trip to Whole Foods very much. Don't laugh when I tell you this, but this was the first time that I've ever put sauerkraut on a hot dog, and it won't be the last. I've never had a hot dog that tasted so good....total deliciousness! Tony sliced some potatoes and made us some french fries, and I made some of Elise's Fry Sauce (thanks to Shen).
I hope you have a great weekend! Everyone try to stay cool.
