Smoothies don’t mean all goes smoothly in the kitchen

Last night Bob was making smoothies.  Blend, moosh, squoush.  Bob started moaning that he didn’ t know how to make a berry smoothy.  Nothing was blending nicely.  And that adding icecream was probably not the correct action.  I told  him to call my mother, she does it all the time.  He said something rude about my backseat cooking skills and things devolved.  At the end we were left with the following questions:

  1. How does my Mom make her berry smoothies?
  2. What happened to the missing end of the spoon?
  3. Where is smooosh on the blender dial?
  4. What does the word smooosh mean?

I need to call my mom and get instructions before the next smoothy making episode, if only to get ammunition.

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.

  1. There are a million tutorials and recipes on the internet. I like to add baby spinach to mine. Doesn’t taste spinachy, but gives it that extra nutrition in a hurry. Good luck.
