The Genius of Bloggers

Happy Monday! I can't believe the weekend is over already! I must admit that I had a pretty productive weekend, which always makes me happy.

Yesterday the hubby and I got into a "cleaning mode" and packed up lots of stuff to donate to the Goodwill Store. Even though we brought a bunch of boxes over, we realized that we still have so much more stuff to go through! It's amazing how events (like having a baby) motivate me to clean up, reorganize and get my stuff together.

I know I've mentioned this before, but one of the reasons I love blogging and reading blogs is to get ideas from other people.

I've been making banana soft serve a lot lately because of all of this heat. I read recently on Jolene's blog about how she adds frozen blueberries to her banana soft serve to create an entirely different flavor. I tried this a few days ago and I LOVED it! Thanks so much for the idea, Jolene!

I used one frozen banana, a splash of fat free milk and a handful of frozen blueberries.


This made the traditional banana soft serve really, really tasty!

Question of the Day:
Why do you read food blogs?

Until next time!

Agree! I totally lean on others for foodie inspiration (hence the shrimp & grits). Good luck with the reorg- I always feel better when things are clean/decluttered

I am so glad you liked it!!!! :-)

I totally read for recipe ideas, and inspiration, and to discover new foods that I have never tried before. I have also always been really interested in what other people eat.
