I helped my mom with the sweet potato casserole yesterday (it was the most fun of the Thanksgiving projects: it involved smashing sweet potatoes and chopping up nuts with a new knife!), and it ended up quite a lovely casserole, if I do say so myself. It also ended up a casserole with (despite us revising the recipe) almost unconscionable amounts of butter and sugar.
You kind of know that going into Thanksgiving, though. I don’t think I had a green vegetable yesterday that wasn’t part of a casserole. And there was pie!
Accordingly, this morning I woke in desperate need of a green smoothie.
I headed off to the grocery store for supplies, hoping I wouldn’t run into anyone I knew since I was sporting a greasy top-knot and wearing my pajama shirt with jeans. I grabbed some spinach, almond milk, almond butter, and bananas (and some chocolate bunnies because I am powerless to resist chocolate bunnies), and I was in business.
Isn’t it lovely? Mom has a much nicer blender here than I have at home. I feel 95% better already. Now if I could only get some coffee around here …
