Mixed Berry Yogurt Smoothie

Yup, that's right... another smoothie!  Christian has absolutely fallen in love with his daily smoothies.  It has been a great way for him to get his servings of fruits and dairy to start each day and has taken the place of cereal.  Today was a snow day and Christian slept in so he had his smoothie with his pizza burger for lunch.  Of course he made it himself.

Earlier in the week we took a mini shopping trip to Walmart where Christian picked out some frozen mixed berries (strawberries, raspberries, blackberries & blueberries) and picked out some Astro yogurt.  The 650g container was on sale for $1 so we bought up a few. 


Mixed Berry Yogurt Smoothie 

1/2 cup 1% milk
1/2 cup yogurt
1/2 cup frozen mixed berries
1 small banana

Christian loved his smoothie and said that it was extra creamy.  There were seeds from the blackberries and raspberries, but that didn't seem to bother him any.  I love how quick and easy smoothies are and love even more that Christian is enjoying them!

Banna-Nutella Tortilla Wrap

While standing in the grocery store line last week I was flipping through a cooking magazine and came across this idea.  I thought it was the perfect after school surprise for Christian.

First I spread the nutella on a tortilla.

Then I put a peeled banana on it.

Rolled it up...

...and it was ready to eat.

Christian shared it with his little brother and they both gobbled it up.  A little messy... for Alexander especially, but worth it.

Aztec Blend

I was at the Bulk Barn last week and decided to try out one of their rice blends. It is Aztec Blend #1656. It includes colusari red rice, long grain brown rice, split peas, and amaranth. I had no idea what some of those ingredients were but figured anything's worth a try, right? When I got home I looked up colusari rice & amaranth. Colusari rice is a burgundy-colored chewy rice that has a light nutty-popcorn-like flavor and amaranth is actually an herb.

It was very simple to prepare & actually pretty good. The peas were a little crunchy which added nice texture. I was surprised that both kids really liked it.

My Pinterest Inspired Asian Meal

This is a meal that we had last week that was entirely planned using Pinterest.  Thoe of you who know me well are well aware of my addiction to Pinterest.  Yes, addiction.  It has even been said that I need a Pin-tervention.  :)   I cannot help it though, I not only enjoy looking for recipe this way, but I have found it very helpful in meal planning.  I now even have weekly menu boards created on Pinterest to organize my weekly meal plans.  It has become a great tool.  So I guess you could say that this meal, in a small way, does prove that I actually do make recipes that I find on there. :)   Anyway, I was in the mood for a different kind of bbq meal so I choose to make Asian Grilled Drumsticks, Asian Cabbage Mango Slaw, Tricolor Thai Salad with Zucchini & Yellow Squash, and plain white rice.   Early in the day I put the salads together and because there were so many vegetables it involved a bit of prep work.  Plus l thought it would be a good idea to get the vegetables maridnad…
