What is that?

Oh, nothing.

Just spinach. IN MY BLENDER.

Weird. Gross. Eww. Anything blended together with spinach can't be good!

My thoughts exactly.

But I've been hearing all about these little smoothies called GREEN MONSTERS and because I give into peer pressure super easily and am such a follower because I want to fit in with the cool kids, I decided to give it a try.

So, a handful of spinach, some frozen strawberries, 1/2 a banana, 1 cup of water, and a splash orange juice later...

I had a green monster!

And honestly, besides the fact that I thought it looked disgusting, it wasn't bad.

I actually thought it tasted much like my regular fave smoothies and I didn't even add milk or sugar, therefore I bet it is a million times healthier. Spinach > Sugar+Milk.

So yeah. I think I will experiment with it and try some other ingredients. Perhaps some different frozen fruits, some protein powder.. I've heard of people using peanut butter. Mmm.

And while I'm on the subject of food, here's what we're having for dinner...

Pork Chop Chicken Gumbo

It is really yummy and super easy to make!

Yep, that's it. 4 boneless chops & a can of Chicken Gumbo soup.

Put the pork chops in a dish and pour the soup over top of them, like this:

Then bake at 350 for about an hour.

And viola! Dinner is served (I like it with some mashed potatoes and a veggie!)
