Sorry I haven't posted all week. I've been busy getting over the flu and getting all my car maintenance done and other general preparations for heading to work. I got called up on Monday for a NOAA job in Mississippi for the next couple weeks. While it will be nice to be back at work and still be able to come home on the weekends, it means I won't be able to post as much until March 14th or so. Later, if Joe and I end up having to move. Actually, it means I'll be doing DIY stuff for 8 hours a day, but I'll be getting paid and working on a ship so I can't exactly stop to take pictures. Besides, I can't imagine that you'd be too interested to watch me changing filters and doing electrical stuff.
In the meantime, now that I finally kicked the flu, I've been busy today. I've got quite a few projects I'm taking care of before I leave, so I'll stockpile a couple of those to post over the next couple of weeks. Otherwise, I guess this will be the perfect opportunity for me to actually sit down and work on that sweater I swore I was going to make. lol.
For now, here's a smoothie I whipped up while I was waiting for laundry to be finished and baking to be done. It is sort of a mid-afternoon sweet treat and effort to clean out the fridge, since we all know whatever groceries are in the fridge now will still be there when I get back. All of these measurements are sort of approximates. It came out to about a glass and a quarter of smoothie, so I just put the leftover in a container and popped it in the fridge for dessert. You can probably use ice cream too to make a milkshake as opposed to a smoothie.
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 cup frozen/defrosted strawberries
1/4 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
1/2 tbsp sugar (optional)
Basically you just toss them all into a blender, or in my case a food processor, hang on tight (those frozen strawberries can wreak some havoc), and pulse until smooth.
While I'm unDIYable, maybe you could all pop over to my Etsy shop
and tell me in the comments what you think about the new photos I've put up for my items. I'm trying to gauge if they're better than the old ones or if they still need improvement.
