Who would have known it could be this hard?!

Seriously guys making smoothies should not be this complicated. This is what you get when you take a smoothie you feel has too much pulp, try to strain it then decide "Hey maybe the juicer will eliminate the pulp?" So you stick the pulpy smoothie into a juicer and turn it on. Well apparently it shoots out the side of the juicer. Didn't know that. Oh well, outside a huge mess in the kitchen and on me and a good laugh, no harm done. The kids enjoyed a blend of, chard, bananas,strawberries,cucumber,grapes,peppers, mixed with water and ice. They loved it!!

Raw Food Mishap

I know it doesn't look so bad but it really was. I was trying to make a healthy smoothie for my family. Our blender struggles with doing it's job on thick stuff. I have little trick, I use a spoon and I stir it. Of course I am careful not to jam it to far into the blender. I mean how stupid do you think I am. My husband thinks this is stupid but I know what I am doing and I beg to differ. I was thinking how smart I am when suddenly reality changed for me. I nearly lost an eye! The spoon made contact with the blade and whamo! It flew out of my hand splattering me with strawberries and chard. Gary and the kids got a pretty good laugh.
