Day 243 of 365
Recipe for fun
In march of 2017 I sent a book to my mother. I visited a few amazing human beings who shared this book with me and the moment I read through it I knew that mom would love it and hate it all at the same time.
Honestly, I was being naughty when I sent it. My mother appreciated every part of the book and marked a few pages with post-it notes and business cards. I can't tell you how excited I was to see it sprawled on her butcher block just a few weeks after sending it to her.
We bonded over the vulgarity and laughed at the recipies. This book is one of the few that I wanted to keep after she passed.
For my 243rd first time experience I decided to try one of the recipes inside this cookbook. I didn't have to go solo, my freshly graduated college kid was my right hand.
What did I decide to make?
I know that it doesn't seem like a recipe but this was close to my heart and mom would have been right with me on this new twist to Earl Grey tea. I have never made a tea smoothie and I should mention that this is a vegetarian cookbook so all of the ingredients are animal free.
The entire experience took a few hours and the recipe as it is written is so hilarious you should go to the library and grab a copy. I blended the smoothie in my Ninja and served it in a wonder Woman glass. It felt absolutely perfect. I'm so grateful that my mother had a sense of humor and that we shared it.
Day 243 cooked.
