So I made a huge discovery last night--I have been making smoothies wrong my WHOLE LIFE. Seriously folks, gather round. This is huge. So every time I make a smoothie, it always drives me crazy that I have to stop the blender several times and stir the ingredients up. But then this week, I read somewhere (and I literally have no clue where) that you should put your liquid in the bottom of the blender, then your greens, and finally chunks of fruit and ice on top. I have always done exactly the opposite--layer the fruit and greens, then pour almond milk over it all. I tried the liquid first method and oh em gee, it was perfect!
So tell me--am I the only one who didn't know that this was the correct way to make smoothies? Am I smoothie-inept? Is this common sense to anyone else? It honestly never occured to me--I've been blaming my blender for years!
Today was our LAST DAY of ISAT testing!! Woohoo!! More than anything, I am relieved to be back to our normal schedule--for everyone's sake!!! My pre-testing "pep talks" have gotten shorter every day, and yesterday morning I had to swap my heels for a pair of crocs midway through our test. I am so over testing!!
My grade level team has been saying this year that we needed a "team building" activity to socialize together outside of school. Back in December, we bought Groupons for one of those step-by-step painting classes. None of us are artists, but there was the promise of conversation and wine. We ended up having a great time!
(That wine has been refilled by this point...)
The finished product! I'm not going to be changing careers anytime soon, let's just say!
Tell me about your week!
