I'm glad it's Friday

Even the dog is ready for Friday! He is guarding the monkey hoping that someone will come after it and initiate a chase.

I don't know about you, but this week has been really long for me. I think it was the lack of sun that made me tired. My blog has been really boring lately because I haven't found the time (or energy) to turn on the sewing machine. I did try a really good and semi-nutritious smoothie for lunch. My daughter brought the recipe home from school.

Pumpkin Yogurt Cheesecake Shake

1 14-ounce can pumpkin chilled
3 ounces reduced fat cream cheese (I used regular)
1 6 or 8 ounce container low-fat vanilla yogurt
2 cups milk
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
graham cracker crumbs to sprinkle on the top!

Dump everything into the blender and process until smooth. Pour into glasses and sprinkle with graham cracker crumbs . (It would be tasty with whipped cream added before the crumbs, but that sort of defeats the nutritional value)

Plenty of vitamin A, Calcium, protein, and Fiber. It was a big hit with all the little people at my house today. I will be making these again. Let me know if you try these. I am curious what you think!

Yes, once the sun comes out you will feel MUCH better. Personally, I like rainy days. Then I can light the fragrant candles and enjoy the smells.
I signed up for the Shipsee retreat. Come on 2010!!!!!!!!

Oh my!! Poor Gunner! He must miss me :c) Im in Raleigh teaching this weekend and being loved on by 3 large dogs at a lady's house so I'm getting lots of licks and kisses, and giving much scritches, scratches and belly rubs in return :c)

The pumpkin smoothie sounds GREAT!!!
