I got home from tutoring last night at 8:30. Due to a series of unfortunate events, I did not get to eat dinner at tutoring like I usually do.
Back up…I tutor once a week in a GED program for at risk women. I usually grab a bite to eat during the opening announcements, prayer requests, and devotional. Last night I was trying to make copies for homework for the women, and the copier was giving me grief. It jammed ever second sheet of paper. I couldn’t get it to do double sided to save my life. Collating? fuh-get-about-it.
After a long battle with the second copier, I arrived back in the room just in time to teach with a stack of 12 copies of 15 different worksheets, uncollated and not stapled.
Mary, another tutor, took one look at my face and sprang to her feet and asked, “May I help with that?”
Bless her heart, I just handed her the whole stack.
“Stapled too?” ask Mary.
“Yes, bless you, bless you.” I said.
Anyways, where was I? Oh yes, dinner. I didn’t have any. It was late so I didn’t want to reheat leftovers because it felt too heavy right before bed. So I made a smoothie.
Sorry, no pics of this one, I was rushing around too much just trying to feed my face, but it turned out rather good so I want to share.
Blueberry Peach Smoothie
- 1/3 cup washed frozen blueberries
- 1/3 cup washed frozen peaches
- 1/3 cup plain yogurt
- good splash of milk
- 1 heaping tablespoon peanut butter
Throw it all in a blender and puree until smooth. Enjoy!
I wasn’t sure the peanut butter would mix with the fruit, but I really liked the combination. I guess it’s not too different from a PB&J sandwich when I think about it. I also ate it with the spoon I used to scoop the peanut butter so I’ve got extra yumminess in every bite.
What would you do for dinner right before bed? (I realize 8:30 isn’t that late for dinner. Honestly, I eat that late all the time, but it’s more the fact that I have to go to bed early and get up early that caused me not to want a heavy dinner.)
Have I over explained this situation enough? Make a smoothie. They’re yummy.
Over and out.
