Chick chick.

Today I made it a double green smoothie day. One for breakfast, one for dinner. What a great way to get your greens! In both of them I used papaya, pineapple, strawberries, and a banana. The one I made this morning also had added to the mix flax seeds, chia seeds, and hemp protein powder.

I gave half to my hubby. He loves my smoothies minus the ridiculous amount of spinach I then add to my half.

But Tiger sure does enjoy them.

This evening I dropped dinner off at my friend's house because she wasn't feeling the greatest. She requested cream of potato soup so I made her a very unhealthy yet tasty crockpot dish. Her and her husband moved from their town home out to the country and decided they wanted to raise a few roosters and hens for fresh eggs and to have as pets. They have about 8, in a large box in their kitchen complete with a comfortable bed of hay and lots of food! They are amazing little creatures. They decided to name every one of them after their friends. I give you this little beauty, yours truly, Kat.

Notice their little feet full of feathers? I can't remember the name of the breed but they have 3 of these that their feathers grow out from their feet. Their so beautiful! I wish I had gotten a picture of all them. This little one went to sleep in my friend's hand. She was so calm and sweet. I only spent about 15 minutes with them but in that short amount of time, their individual personalities were so plainly shown! Their frequent chirping was almost soothing after being with them. It left me sad, however, to think of the not so fortunate ones on factory farms. Did you know they love to be petted and will actually lay in your lap and fall asleep?


  1. I've never tried papaya in a smoothie, sounds good!

  2. Does your cat really drink the smoothies? How cute! :)

  3. I don't really let her drink them, but she has tried! She is gives ultimate meaning to the term 'curious cat'.
