Most of the time when life is calm and somewhat functional, I try to get myself a decent breakfast. To meet a practicality criteria, it has to be simple and something that I can complete while moving around the morning routine of packing books, stuffing healthy snacks into lunch boxes and fitting myself into a reasonably presentable, stain free outfit.
I have a few staples that fit this bill. One of these is a fruit and cashew nut smoothie. Like everything else in my repetoire, the composition varies with the season. I have made this with berries, bananas and when the weather is hot like this I make it with watermelons. I usually share this with my daughter who loves watermelons. The kids have started camp, but seem to have had a rough start.
Dad recieved a call on friday since they were being roudy. They have been appropriately spoken to. I had however been a little sad, for various reasons. I am a wimp when it comes to try to discipline the kids, I also feel sad that they have to be constrained during summer, but again they were out of line and do need to learn to behave.
I decided to whip up a batch of my watermelon smoothie for everyone last afternoon. Through a quick glimpse from the camera, I observed that it made a nice, pretty and very refreshing drink. The watermelon that I picked up was surprising sweet. It brought a wonderful smile to my daughters face and the cool drink served to be nutrious and made for a good healthy afternoon snack.
