How SMOOTH Are You?

It might be a stretch to say that my husband is the King of Smooth, after all the conversation we had when we decided to date exclusively went something like this:

Trev: You know how when you are dating it is sort of like you have all these different possible people to spend your time with, and it is like there are all these doors open?

Me: Um....yes....I guess so.

Trev: Yeah, well, I have a lot of doors open right now and I want to shut them. But I want to know if your are open and are going to be there.

Me: Are you trying to have one of those "define our relationship" conversations with me?

Trev: No. I just want to know if you are going to be there.

Me: Be there for what?

Trev: If I close these doors.

Me: mkay.

Honest, but not exactly smooth. However, Trevor could definitely be called the KING of SMOOTHIES! In the last couple of days he and I have discovered a new passion thanks to our K-TEC blender (the best blender in the world!) Being summer and all, fresh produce is ridiculously cheap right now and we have replaced an average of one meal a day with some sort of fruit smoothie concoction. Who knew that blueberries, strawberries, bananas, pineapple, apples, blackberries and raspberries could be so divine when combined with milk and ice and spun around rapidly? We are loving just tossing fruit into our trusty K-Tec, but also want to experiment with adding in vegetables like carrots and spinach. We are hoping the fruit can still cover up the veggies, but to gain the added nutrients. This is where you fabulous, varied folks come in. I am on the hunt for prime Smoothie combinations. Please share....and know we will be thinking of you next time we blend!Forgive the photo- it is a terrible self-shot, Trev's face is only half-present and my hair is pretty much huge and red....but we didn't have time to mess with taking another one...we had blueberry-banana smoothies to eat!

We are big fans of putting yogurt in our fruit smoothies instead of milk just to give it another fun flavor. Strawberries, orange juice and vanilla yogurt is pretty fantastic!!
(and thanks for the comment on my blog! I love ya!)
