FALL PERSIMMON PIE SMOOTHIE

Happy almost Thanksgiving!  I LOVE this holiday and how it encourages us to get together with our loved ones.

I am spending Thanksgiving with 27 loved ones and can’t wait! I thought I would share my children’s Thanksgiving placemats with you. ¬†It is a tradition where I live that¬†kindergartners make placemats for their Thanksgiving feast at school and then they bring them home as a keepsake. ¬†I love these. ¬†It is so funny to see what the kids write and to watch their parent’s reaction to what they are thankful for. ¬†Last year I read my son’s Thanksgiving poem that highlighted all he was thankful for and all I could think after reading it was that I was thankful for that fact that his family was listed before Biz Markie (who knew he even knew who Biz Markie was???). ¬†Really??? ¬†Out of the mouths of babes…

Tomorrow is a wonderful day of cooking which also means a wonderful day of eating.  I encourage you to start the day off right with a nice Fall smoothie.

TIP – When I go shopping at my local Mother’s Market I treat myself to a fresh-squeezed juice. ¬†I always bring the container home, wash it, and save it in the cabinet so I have a great container to use when I am running out of the house and want to bring a smoothie with me on the run. ¬†Recycling is the best!!!I made this smoothie the other morning as I was running out the door to go to the hairdresser and ended-up happily sipping it throughout my appointment. ¬†I loved it so much I made it for breakfast the next day too. ¬†Stock-up on persimmons at the Farmer’s Market…they are wickedly good right now.
