Wow! I have lots of news to report tonight.
1. OMG! School starts tomorrow! WHERE does the time go??? It seems like just a day or so ago I was announcing that I was on vacation! I am very excited about a new year and new possibilities. I am lucky to work in a wonderful school and district! :)
2. Sad News… our TV broke tonight. So weird! It was perfect last night. But today… it won’t even come on. If you follow me on Twitter then you know I am a little suspicious. Hubby has been wanting a flat-screen for years. Yes, we are the last people we know that still have a TV that weighs more than both of us together. LOL. I am wondering if he might have sabotaged the TV… hmmmmm.
3. Thanks to Diana over at The Chic Life, I have a new breakfast fave. I heard Diana talk about Green Monster Smoothies a lot and always thought, EWWWWWW. Spinach? With fruit? Sounded crazy to me. However, I tried it and YUM. So Good. So filling and has really stuck with me in the mornings! You can go here to read all about making Green Monster Smoothies. Anyway, I don’t add any sweeteners, so mine is purely milk, banana, and spinach, and I LOVE it! You REALLY cannot taste the spinach. Try it tomorrow and see how you like it! And then let Diana know how awesome it was!
4.. I am so excited about a fruit I found at a local farm stand yesterday…
It seems like everyone knows someone with a fig tree… but you can’t buy them in most markets. I even checked the Rock Hill Farmer’s Market (who has a GREAT variety of produce) and they didn’t have any. Luckily, the Bush n Vine in York, SC sells buckets of figs this time of year!
The Bush n Vine is wonderful. They have great locally-grown produce, but they also offer CSA memberships throughout the year! We’ve been thinking about joining a CSA for a while now and maybe this Fall will be the time!
I think figs are just about the prettiest and most surprising fruit when you cut them open.
Look at how pretty and pink they are! I have been snacking on them a lot the past 2 days! I’m thinking about a pizza with figs… hmmm. Maybe you’ll be seeing that soon!
