All I Wanted for Christmas and a Smoothie

Uncle-and-Niece2

We just returned from a lovely trip to see my family in Canada for Christmas. One of the best things about the trip was meeting our 3 month old niece for the first time.

Some other noteworthy events from the trip: Most days we went to bed at 3am and got up at noon. It was awesome!

We had to run through the airport to catch a flight even though we’d had a 2 hour layover. We went to our gate 5 minutes before boarding and discovered that the departures board had had the wrong gate and we were in the wrong terminal. We had to go through security again (because it was an international flight). We were so blessed by the kindness of strangers who let us go ahead of them in line. And even the security officers were extra nice. We made it to our gate, winded and sweaty, with a few minutes to spare.

We have a niece. We love her so much. Oh, I already said this?

We dropped my youngest brother, Josh, off at the bus station to go back home after his holiday was over. We stood outside with him for about 15 minutes. It was -5C (23F), but felt like -12C (10F) with the windchill. I was so cold that my feet hurt. Never mind that we were wearing our California winter clothes… But, regardless, it was cold!

Tim┬áturned 30 while we were in Canada. My brother, Josh, made an amazing Bag End Under the Hill cake for his Hobbit themed party. It was AWESOME! (A few years ago he made a Lost cake, also for┬áTim’s birthday!)

We wore crowns. It’s a tradition in our family.

Crowns

My parents live on a large property. We went out as a family and cut down our Christmas tree in their “yard”. It was super cold and really fun. Then I made sure my really awesome crocheted candle was prominently displayed at the front.

While bringing in packages from a shopping trip I slipped and fell on the ice. Thankfully I was kinda behind a pillar, so I don’t know if anyone saw it happen. They just heard the shopping bags crash to the ground and saw me laying there. I’m just glad I wasn’t holding groceries!

There was snow! It was fun to jump in.

At-Dusk

Unfortunately, after being there for just a day, my body must have finally given in and I got sick. The worst part of it (aside from feeling awful and being stuck in bed for 24 hours) was not being able to play with my 3 month old niece.

My brother, Papa to my darling niece, makes these amazingly healthy smoothies most mornings. He offered me some one morning. I was a little bit skeptical because it had kale in it. I know lots of people drink green smoothies, but I wasn’t one of them.

Green-Smoothie

And then just like that I was.

This smoothie had kale, banana, apple, flax oil, strawberries, blueberries, acidophilus, and other healthful goodies.

I am sold on healthy green smoothies.

Here’s my brother’s recipe. It’s a very “to taste” kinda thing, so follow his recipe, or use what you like, in the quantities you prefer.

Happy Healthy Eating!!

Mom’s Roasted Beet Salad

Mom’s Roasted Beet Salad

Recipe Type: Salad, Side, Dinner, Lunch
Author: Susan Pries (Adaptations by Rachel Oberg – De Ma Cuisine)
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Serves: 4-6
Beets are roasted, almonds are coated with honey, spinach and beet greens are torn, making up a delightful salad. Perfect for the holiday season, or any time of year.
Ingredients
  • 2-3 medium beets (I halved them for roasting)
  • 4 T olive oil
  • 1 t lemon juice (I used orange juice)
  • 1 T balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 T honey
  • 1 T dijon mustard
  • 1/2 t dried thyme
  • 1/2 t garlic (I used 1/8 t garlic powder)
  • 1/4 t salt (my addition)
  • bit of pepper (also me)
  • 1 C almonds, coarsely chopped
  • 1 T butter
  • 2 T honey
  • 4-8 C greens (I used beet greens and spinach)
  • 1/4 C feta cheese (I didn’t have feta, so I used parmesan, Gorgonzola or Blue cheese would also be yummy)
Instructions
  1. Wash and halve beets. Bake at 350F for 45-70 minutes, or until tender, but not mushy.
  2. When cool enough to handle, peel and julienne (cut to look like matchsticks).
  3. Whisk together lemon or orange juice, vinegar, 1 T honey, dijon, thyme, garlic, salt, and pepper. Stream in olive oil and whisk, creating an emulsion.
  4. Combine beets with dressing. Let flavors meld for about 3 hours before serving (I tasted it right away and it was good too).
  5. Heat almonds with butter and honey to coat and thicken slightly. Cool (if they get too solid, re-heat).
  6. Top greens with beet mixture, cheese, and almonds.
