Monday in Minutes

Mon·day: the first day of the working week, hated by mankind in general and tolerated only during football season.

Maybe that is not the exact definition, but it’s pretty close! Despite our dislike of Mondays, they do have one redeeming quality in our house: all the men have regularly scheduled obligations on Monday night, leaving us women to our blissful selves. Since the guys are not home to eat, this is the night we pull out the good stuff make “chick food”. French toast, omelets, light salads, and yogurt are a few of our favorites, but to stick to our goal of spicing up the routine we tried an awesome new smoothie recipe last night. Keeping this one from becoming a habit is going to be difficult! Maybe we can compromise a little….

Minted Peach Smoothies

2 cups milk
2 cups frozen sliced peaches
1/4 cup orange juice concentrate
2 tbsp. sugar
5 ice cubes

In a blender, combine all ingredients;

 cover and process until smooth.  Pour into glasses and serve immediately.

 Add mint sprigs for garnish.  Yields 4 servings.

Done in 10 minutes or less, leaving plenty of time to enjoy the rest of the boy-free evening!
