There are only three things that I consider my kryptonite: Ice cream, dark chocolate covered almonds, and frappes. With it being warmer out a frappe is the way to go! Cold and chocolately with a kick!

YOU WILL NEED

2 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder ( Ghirardelli is best )

2 tablespoons of instant coffee ( I use a Starbucks packet that is lightly sweetened ) 

1 cup of chocolate milk. ( I use Organic Valley | It is THE best )


PREPARATION.
In a single serving blender ( like a Ninja ) or your regular old kitchen blender add 4-6 pieces of ice, the cocoa powder, coffee, and chocolate milk. Blend for about 30-45 seconds, or until your desired frothiness!

Voila! Your perfect frappe is ready. 

The ratios that I use give this frappe a wonderful intense flavor. If you're not a coffee person just leave that out and enjoy a delightful chocolate frappe. You can play around with the ingredients a bit. You can add a little vanilla if you like. Of course you can use regular milk, to cut back on the calories. Even with the chocolate milk it's still under 200 calories. That fact makes it taste all the better!

Have a great Wednesday, Friends!

A FEW THINGS: THE WEEKEND ROUNDUP

A FEW THINGS: THE WEEKEND ROUNDUP

Sunday, April 19, 2015
A Few Things | Razors are dangerous, violent inanimate objects. My razor decided to make a run for it, to escape my not so firm grasp, and brutally murdered two of my poor little toes in the process. How does that even happen? Not just one toe. TWO. On separate feet! So there I was, alone and dejected, standing in a pool of my own blood, contemplating the statistical probability of a razor falling and cutting even just one toe. 
It's bananas yo!

My sister, Tuna Love ( there’s a story there ), hit the road with some friends for gregarious fun at a theme park. I’m not the jealous type, but I have to admit I was a little green with envy. She left my two nieces with us so we had a sweet time with them. I learned that Hannah simply must have an Elsa cake for her birthday. "I need you to make me an Elsa cake. You have to.. have to have to have to, Aunt Jennifer!!!"

My father flies experimental aircraft, namely a Gyro Copter, which is just a fancy name for “lawn chair with propellers”. He has been going to fly-ins since I was a little girl. Every year we all gather out in the cul-de-sactake a selfie, help him pack his trailer, and send him on his way. This year was no exception. I fear to think what our neighbors think of us all out there in our pajamas carrying on. Hey, we are who we are. 

A Few Captures | Raspberry spelt muffins are my new favorite thing. They magically made me love both raspberries and coconut in one bite! | It's warm again so I can start wearing this floral dress all.the.time. | Throwback to carefree days in Hawaii. One of the best memories I have ever made. For one long sunny day I was utterly free. Such a gift! | I love love love palm trees! I don't know why, but I think they are the happiest tree; standing so tall with their sassy fronds dancing in the wind.

A Random Tidbit |
A spider jumped on my face the other night and I screamed like a five year old. Actually, a spider jumped “near" my face and I had a William Shatner level overreaction. 


A Few words for the road
"A bad attitude is like a flat tire, you can't go anywhere without changing it."


It's been a good week you guys. I hope your week was productive and filled with happy moments! Thanks so much for stopping by. I heart you, friends <3

You know that "Italian" ice stuff that tastes like sugar with a little bit of fruit in it? Well, I had one at the air show (on Saturday) and I still feel like I could lift a mac truck. There's something liberating and unnerving about consuming that much sugar. 

This past weekend was a regular party and a half. The Blue Angels came to the Air Station and displayed their flying skills for the community all weekend. I've grown up going to the air show, but this year was particularly fun. Especially the part where we were sweating years off of our lives touring the inside of the sauna like aircraft. In all seriousness though, we had front row seats to all of the loud, awe-inspiring fun! It didn't hurt that it was cloudy so the blistering heat was actually kept in check. Gathering with friends to laugh, feast, and wander is always a wonderful time!


What trouble did you get into this past weekend? Have you ever seen the Blue Angels fly?
