Feels Like Summer....

You can't by happiness,
 but you CAN buy smoothies and that's close enough...

Summertime weather is upon us.  We all need ways to stay cool and look good at the same
 time.  That why it's time for some smoothies to cool us off on these warm summer days.

The Honeydew Ginger Smoothie:
11/2 cups cubed honeydew melon
1/2 cup banana
1/2 cup vanilla nonfat yogurt
1/2 cup ice cubes
1/4 teaspoon grated fresh ginger

Combine the cubed honeydew, banana, yogurt, ice and grated ginger in blender; 
blend until smooth.  Pour into 2 glasses and before you know it you are
 sipping on some pretty amazing stuff.  Garnish  with mint leaves
 if you like or some fresh ginger slices or some melon balls.  

My mom is always telling us the benefits of ginger.  Today I try to use ginger in all my cooking
 and if I listened more to my mom I would also be drinking more ginger tea.  For now this 
smoothie with a hint of ginger will do it for me.  Love my ginger slices as well. This 
honey dew ginger smoothie is a great alternative from the usual green smoothies.

Yesterday we cleaned and cleaned.  Not as bad as I expected and we got quite a lot done.
As a little treat o ourselves we went to the Home and Garden Show at the Broward 
Convention Center.  We o just about every year.  Always nice to get new ideas 
and especially if one is looking for a particular item.  

The show prices are pretty good compared to retail prices.  This time we were looking
 for motorized blinds to block out some of the sun's rays in the early morning.  
Found many good deals and we had a good time as well.

Not much planned as yet, but with us that can change in seconds.  
To all a good Saturday.  Here it is already nice and warm.

In life, much like smoothies, you get out what you put in...
