bubbly, beautiful GREEN Smoothies

Photobucket Pictures, Images and PhotosBack in my youthful and artistic days, I spent many hours looking for pictures of amoebas to re-create on a canvas with batik. I found so much beauty in the cells as they gathered and made beautiful masses. Call me crazy, but I am now obsessed with the bubbly mess that is created when I make green smoothies. I try to make a green smoothie or at least juice, everyday. I buy organic fruits and vegetables and add either almond milk or coconut water and a few spices and see what happens. Most days I come up with something good, but recently, I find myself making one smoothie at least once a week. Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos Fall is here and I have already had a few Pumpkin Lattes either from Starbucks or Tully's or homemade, but I'm trying to cut down on coffee, so my new Fall favorite is Spicy Pear Smoothie! no caffeine, but I feel like I have more energy. Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos Pears are in Season right now, so I am going to makes this smoothie until I get sick of it.

Sweet Treats on our walk: Crumble & Flake

Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos So I'm probably the last person to finally try the yummy treats at Crumble & Flake. I have to admit, I didn't feel like standing in line for a croissant, only to find out they have run out. Besides, I'd like to decide on my own if something is truly worth the wait. I had read a few articles and ran across Facebook posts raving about Crumble & Flake. Well, the rumor are true!!! Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos Every crumb and flake I devoured was delicious. John got the Pistachio Croissant and I ordered the Goat Cheese and Fig, both delicious. One bummer is there is no seating, however, right outside is a Parklette. No kidding! There is a little deck that has a few plants and a little place to stand and enjoy the view. Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos So, as long as I won't need to stand in line, too long, I'll be back.
