Strawberry-Banana Smoothie


Yesterday was "okay, we really need to clean out the fridge and use up some things before they go bad" day. One of those items were some ripe bananas on my counter. Usually, I'll just make them into banana bread (my kids LOVE it!) But, lately, it seems like that's all I do and my freezer is STOCKED with banana bread! So, I decided to try a couple new things - a smoothie and a banana chocolate chip dessert. Here is the recipe I used for the smoothie:

1 ripe banana
several cut up strawberries (yes, I still had some of these that needed to be used, too)
2 4 oz yogurts (I had Berry Blend, some of the Dannon Activia on sale from this last week)
1/2-3/4 c. milk

Put in blender and blend till smooth. Of course, you can add anything you want to the smoothie. I just used what was on hand. But, it turned out SO YUMMY!!! It made about 2 glasses worth.

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!

LOW Entry Giveaways Ending This Week

GIVEAWAY: ERGObaby Carrier! -CLOSED-

Winner

I have carried my little boy in a baby carrier since he was born. I love the convenience of strapping him in and not worrying about the hassle of a bulky stroller. It's also a comfort to hold my little guy close and safe. When I had the chance to review the ERGObaby carrier, I was thrilled to try something that could extend my baby wearing days.


My first test was a true one...Costco. I admit that I didn't really look at the directions when I put the carrier on in the parking lot. But I didn't need to! After one look at a picture in the user manual, I strapped my 20 pound boy in, placed my little girl in the shopping cart, and started on my way through the aisles of Costco. I immediately noticed that the carrier more evenly distributed my son's weight than my normal carrier and held my boy high so my legs weren't bumping into his. This made it significantly easier to tote him around the store. Indeed my normal trips to Costco are exhausting. But after…
