Recipe Using Sale Items- Smoothies

Thursday, February 25, 2010 | | 0 comments
This week at Maceys yogurt and frozen strawberries are both on sale. What does this mean we will be having at my house? One of my favorite treats - SMOOTHIES. They are such an easy way to get a little bit of extra fruit into kids, while they think that they are totally getting a treat. We like to use vanilla flavored yogurt and skip the sugar, but plain with a little sugar/honey tastes great too! I am usually a total recipe follower but this is one of those things I just add "some of this and that" to. Its pretty hard to mess these up -and I am able to ruin just about any recipe -so thats saying quite a bit! :) However here are my "about" measurements for a great smoothie.
1 cup frozen berries
1/2 cup -or so- vanilla yogurt
1/2- or less cup milk, or juice
Depending on how icey/frozen, and sweet you like you can also add:
2-3 ice cubes (optional)
2 tbl spoons honey (optional)

Cilantro-Preserving Food

Monday, February 22, 2010 | | 5 comments
Cilantro one of my very favorite things to add to salads, salsa, basically anything that its flavor will mesh with. I LOVE it! Along with my love for cilantro I am on a bit of a quest this year to learn more on how to preserve food. I will share some of my findings with you as this is definitely something that goes along with shopping smart. We all know we that the way to save is to buy when things are cheap (if only that pertained to the shoes and purses i "need" haha). This last week at Smiths (sale ending tonight) Cilantro was on sale for a great price. I have always wondered if there was a way to preserve it for later use, and just never got around to checking it out. Well, after a little bit of research I took advantage of the great sale price on it and bought some extra to use later.
One of the easiest ways I learned that you can store it is to simply wash, dry and trim it, then lightly coat in olive oil, place in plastic freezer bag, and pop the bag into the freezer.
The reason for the olive oil is to make it easy to seperate the leaves again when frozen. Those bags of cilantro look beautiful to me! lol. The goal is just to keep myself from using all of it this week to make salsa! Now to do some more research on some other things I have been wondering about preserving....I will let you know how it goes.

The above pictures come from a blog called Subsistence Pattern. I wish I had 3 bags worth in my freezer, I just dont think I could have found room for more than the one bag I do have :) The blog I found the pictures on have a garden that is just beautiful, and makes me very excited for spring to come so I can get planting!
