enjoying the weekend!

Jason and I are having a fun weekend of chillaxing, painting and hanging out and plan to try pizza on the grill tomorrow.

As for our garden, it's doing fantabulous!

I noticed that our bean plants white flowers have been changing to orange and that we have our first couple of beans! so cool!!
(look below).

This summer I went out and bought a new blender, since our old one started to smoke and died completely a couple months ago.
I've been trying different smoothie combinations and here is a surprisingly unique and refreshing one I tried today.
Watermelon smoothie:
(ingredients in order of quantity used-sorry no precise measurements here)
-watermelon pieces frozen(I left the seeds in cause I'm lazy :) probably about 3-4 cups
-rasberry/apple concentrate 1/4 can depending on desired sweetness
-lime juice or lime aid concentrate-try a 1/5 of a can to 1/4 a can if desired

put all the ingredients in a blender with some water and blend together-vary according to taste preferences.
