Talking about simple acts of kindness....Pumpkiny Green Monsters, and the Holidays

Posted Nov 21 2010 8:53pm
So I was sitting in the parking lot of a local mall tonight- finishing up a phone conversation with a friend. All of a sudden...a white mercedes SUV decides to park in the spot directly in front of me. The man doesn't turn his car enough and scrapes his white SUV along the entire side of the red car directly next to him. He sees me watching this whole situation. He gets out- checks his car- and wipes his hand over the other car- as if trying to "buff" out the scrape. Then, he walks away into the mall and never comes back. People just amaze me sometimes. So...my remedy? I decided to write the red car owner a note with the license plate of the SUV that did the damage. Hey if that ever happened to me, I would hope someone else would do the same. 

With the Thanksgiving holiday coming along...my cousin K  gets obsessed with pumpkin. I love pumpkin especially with all of its healthy aspects. Reading through the blog world I have read over and over about pumpkin shakes, breads pancakes...etc. So I decided to try a little pumpkin shake of my own. As you may know...I am a big fan of the Green Monster  and all of its healthy qualities. So for the holiday season I attempted a Pumpkiny Green Monster. The ingredients included:

1/2 cup of canned pumpkin1 cup of almond milkIce1/4 cup of water2 cup of raw spinach1/2 scoop of vanilla protein powder1 tablespoon of flaxseed1 bananaCinnamon and Nutmeg to taste
Blend and serve...in a fancy glass of course. Great way to get lots of veggies in! Very yummy if I do say so myself....and in case you were wondering, no you don't taste the spinach at all! Even though the drink is totally green. (sorry my picture did not save....next time)
Yay for three day work weeks. The turkey trot is coming along soon.....only 3 more days to train this week. Yikes. Wish me luck. I am thankful that I am able to spend Thanksgiving with my family. This year has been a year of health concerns over and over but thankfully everyone is on the mend and will be able to spend the Thanksgiving holiday together as a family. Yay! Do you have any fun plans for Thanksgiving?
