At first I just wanted to post one smoothie recipe – rhubarb strawberry smoothie recipe. But then, yesterday morning I made the other one for Arne’s breakfast and he loved it. I did too. It was the pineapple banana raisin smoothie. So, now I’m posting both recipes. I hope you’ll like them, if you try and make them.
Rhubarb Strawberry Smoothie Recipe, 2 servings:
Ingredients: ½ cup rhubarb (trimmed and sliced), ½ cup orange juice, 10 strawberries (halved), 1 tablespoon honey, 1 cup milk
Directions: Put the trimmed and sliced rhubarb and orange juice into a small saucepan and cook over medium heat until soft (for about 10 minutes).Remove the pan from the heat and leave to cool. Then put the rhubarb, strawberries, milk and honey in a blender. Mix all together until smooth.
You know, it feels a little weird to post again after more than (just?) a week…
I got e few emails, asking if I’m okay and when I’m going to post again. Thank you!! And sorry for my little break from posting. It’s been a busy few days and we had some celebrations around here, too. I had a lot of computer work to do and no inspiration to post anything. To be honest, blogging late at night would mean too much time behind the computer for me. I finished the work on Friday morning and I promise, promise, promise I’m going to try to post more this coming week. So, this is what I’ve wanted to tell you today. But, to make this post a little bit more interesting, I’m also posting three simple little joys from my past week:
Listening good music while driving (and enjoying the scenery).
Shower and hot water on my back after an exhausting day and cold evening.
Fresh coffee smell in the morning.
What about you, what are your little joys these days?
As I wrote yesterday, I made these on Sunday afternoon. They’re such an easy, Sunday DIY project. You can make them in 10 minutes. You’ll need: a pair of (bigger) straight pins, a pair of (wooden) beads, a pair of ear hooks and tools – end cutters, long nose pliers.
Place a (wooden) bead on the straight pin, cut of the (dangerous) end of a pin and bend the remaining end of the pin – using pliers – to create a small (kind of) spiral shape. Then attach it to ear hook. (Please, take a look to the photos below.) Repeat the process for the other earring.
On Saturday evening, I took a nice bath with bubbles and this wonderful smelling sandalwood bath oil. I love it.
You might have noticed my blog has been less active last days. Sorry for that! It’s been because of the May holidays and probably spring fever has something to do with it, too. I’m back. For now… With a few highlights from lately…
Hi! I’m Mariana. I blog about pretty things that we (toddler son, husband and I) come across, my DIY adventures, simple recipes (Healthy, simple and easy recipes.), photos (I love, love, love taking photos.), clothes and all that goes with them. Welcome!
