fresas and avocados

Today the clinic where Julton works took the day to travel off on an adventure to spend time together. I'm not sure how it went because Julton isn't home yet to tell me about it. I had been planning to go with them but as I told a friend last night... then we prayed that I would get more work.... then I did. So, I was a working lady today while Julton was off on his adventure. And tonight I have kept myself company while he is on his way back by reading too many food blogs, listening to A LOT of Maria Taylor and making a delicious smoothie. And now I will share it with you while I am inspired by all the food blogs I've spent my time tonight watching.

1. A little Milk
2. A handful of Strawberries
3. One frozen Banana
4. A teeeeny bit of Sugar
5. 1/4 of an Avocado

But seriously, an avocado.

I've heard about adding avocado to smoothies before... but could never get myself to commit. I jumped at throwing spinach in my smoothie... but for some reason stayed clear of the avocado version. I think it's partly because I was afraid of it and mostly because I like avocados too much, and could simply eat the 1/4 chunk of avocado whole instead of risking spoiling it.

But today I took the risk. And I recommend that you do too! It makes the smoothie super creamy. Delicious. 

And like I mentioned before I'm spending the night listening to Maria Taylor. LOVE her. I don't listen to her much when Julton is home (like most of my music) because he finds her tunes a little depressing. We'll have to wait until she makes a salsa or jungle folklore record for him to listen with me. hmm. I can't find a link so that you can listen to my new favorite song of hers, off her new album that was recently released... but there is a link where you can download her song, for free! So just go ahead and download it. Thank you Saddle Creek Records.

You can find a Paste article and also the link to download here: Maria Taylor: Bad Idea?
She's touring right now! You have to go if you live in a city that she is coming to. Gillian Baikie, I am talking to you!!!!   October 28 – Denver, Colo. @ Hi Dive Please go and tell her that she has a fan living in Peru that can't wait to come see her play live again!

Note: I don't always agree with the direction of her lyrics. But I still love her, and her music.

By the way Julton just arrived... explaining that he milked a cow today!!!
