This morning (oh, who am I kidding–it was actually around noon) I made a lovely breakfast for Sean and me: cheesy eggs, banana bread, and strawberry smoothies. I concocted the smoothies in the Magic Bullet. This time I just threw stuff in that sounded good, without consulting a recipe at all.
They turned out delightfully.
Strawberry Smoothie (serves 2)
8 oz vanilla yogurt (Dannon Light ‘n Fit)
2 cups fresh strawberries
2 cups ice
1 T sugar
splash skim milk
This whole yogurt thing really seems to work out well for making smoothies. The vanilla is better than the flavored ones, I think. I’ll have to remember that.
Unfortunately I don’t have a picture of the breakfast, because we ate it right away. But believe me when I say that it was pretty. Sean finally brought home the plates someone from work gave us; they’re kind of a pinky beige with soft pink and blue borders, and their rounded shapes are soothing, somehow. I put a wedge of banana bread, a glob of cheesy eggs, and a strawberry sliced in half on each plate, then served the smoothies in tall glasses. I thought wistfully that I wished I had some parsley with which to garnish the eggs, but oh well, nothing’s perfect ;>
