Proof that Spring is coming

Yesterday it seemed as if Aslan might really be on his way (Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe reference). Today, not so much with a steady, cold, sleety, rain. But, I have proof! And we all know what a picture is worth....

I have rediscovered a recipe for a delicious, healthy shake I used to make way back in high school. And, it's a good use for bananas that are still perfectly fine but unacceptable to children who judge everything by its cover.

You will need:

1 frozen banana(easiest if you peel and cut into a few pieces before freezing)

1 cup of milk

1 (or 2) tablespoons of peanutbutter -chunky if you like the texture, otherwise smooth.
Mix these in a blender or food processor - how long depends on how smooth you want it to be.

That smoothie / milkshake sounds great! I think I need to add some chocolate syrup to it.

IO'm soooo happy to see this! We still have mounds of snow - dirty snow, but snow still. Maybe this weekend I'll check the backyard!

I don't know what happened to my crocus this year, but the tulips and hiacynths are about 3 inches tall, so yes Spring is really on the way.

The smoothie sounds yummy
