My banana smoothie this morning was SO delicious, I wanted to share it with you!
It’s 2 bananas, a handful of kale, ice, and water. Whip it all up in a blender til it’s all frothy and thick. I love these – the banana makes it sweet, and the kale gives it just a little extra flavor – and good green stuff!

While walking around here in California, Andy and I ran across this tree with delicious looking fruit. I looked it up on my handy-dandy hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy — err, my smartphone – and found that it was indeed edible!
Week 10′s project is simple: I converted the main theme of my photoblog from promoting my own work, to inspiring others to start photoblogs, too.
