Cleaning Out the Fridge

I turned in my final stats paper today!  Woo!  I can’t believe I wrote an empirical paper.  It sounds so brainy of me!  (Trust me, it’s really not)

So I’m going home on Thursday! Woo!  Which means I have to clean out the fridge so my food doesn’t go bad.

I have:

-3 Ripe Bananas (perfect for Green Monsters and Oatmeal)
-1 sweet potato
-6 potatoes
-1 broccoli crown
-1/2 spaghetti squash
-6 mushrooms
-about 10 carrots
-1/2 bunch of spinach
-some salad lettuce (w/ left over lemon tahini dressing)
-left over lentil burgers (new batch I made today, I’m sure they’ll be gone VERY quickly)

What should I do with these carrots and potatoes?

Also can you freeze cream cheese?

I have something up my sleeve involving the spaghetti squash, mushrooms and an open bottle of white wine 🙂 Stay tuned for that.

Also, since I finished my paper… tonight will involve a little bit of fun… I’m seeing New Moon again, because I’m obsessed I have a friend who has yet to see it and has no one who is willing to go with her.

Hope you’re having a wonderful day!


Green Monster/Smoothie My Way

I love green smooties/green monsters.  They’re refreshing and tasty!  You’ve probably seen them on here quite a bit.  Yesteryday my brother in law requested a recipe for my green smoothie.  So here is my version of the Green Monster:

1 Ripe Banana (the riper the better)
2 handfuls of Spinach
4-5 Frozen Strawberries
1 tbsp Almond Butter
about 1 cup of water
2 or 3 ice cubes

Put it all in the blender and blend for about 1 minute or two.  Serve and enjoy!

But a one more thing… Honestly though, I usually keep adding spinach until I get the right color so it may be more or less than 2 handfuls.  I like to be a bright green color.  You should make it and see what tasted best to you. I also like mine kind of runny, not thick like a smoothie, that grosses me out for some reason. If you want it thicker freeze the banana and add more ice.

Everyone probably makes their’s extremely different from how I do.

What’s your favorite green smoothie/green monster recipe??
