When I'm bored I blend

The secret to getting veg into people is soup, and the secret to getting fruit is the freezer. This is an alternative to the frozen banana.

Half a melon (or a box of the cubed kind)

1 cup yogurt (whole, low fat or non, they all work)

1/2 bag frozen raspberries (cheaper than fresh)

a couple of dashes of honey.

a blender

ice pop molds

First puree raspberry with a little honey, set aside.

Puree down the melon with the yogurt, (you can add some milk to get the machine going) add a little honey if its not sweet enough

Starting with the melon mixture layer the ice pops with melon and raspberry, Take a skewer and run up and down the sides for the swirl look.

They should be frozen in around 5 hours.

The juice of 4 lemons

1 bag of frozen strawberries

1/4 of sugar or honey, to taste

a blender

Add the frozen berrys, the sugar, and the lemon juice to the blender, start it up, Stream in enough water to get things moving. This will create a great thick product, lovable and easy.

Random zombie thoughts #1

(Felt like I needed an outlet for them.)

Instead of having the tooth fairy give coins or cash, what about books? She would need to have a secret stash somewhere, but making rewards reading, that sounds about right.

Super Salad - to give zombies super powers

What is a super salad?

All veg, no frills, but still yum. It's different for different zombies of course. This is mine, and through some sort of text messaging with the gods, my farm box this week created this salad for me.

Super Salad

2 zucchini, chopped

2 ears of corn, boiled, cooled, removed from husks (slice off)

1 mid sized cucumber, peeled, chopped

2 cubes frozen chopped basil

juice of two lemons

olive oil to taste

lots of freshly cracked pepper, (secret power to the super salad)

some salt

Prep time 15 minutes.

Ok first things first, to boil corn you stick in a pot large enough to hold the corn (break them in half if needed) cover them with water, salt the water and bring to a boil. Once boiling take off the heat and let sit around 8 minutes, they should be done  I often do this with left over corn from a summer bbq party.

Frozen basil is available at grocery stores, including TJ's of course.

You can be adventurous and use raw corn, wash very thoroughly if you are, organic or not raw corn needs to be really clean.
