Juice is the Word

OK, so I know a lot of you were shocked by my Tuesday post. “Who is this and what blog have I stumbled upon?” might have run through your minds. But no worries! Never fear! I haven’t changed THAT much. After all, just the other day I filled up my Central Market cold cup with a Diet Coke/Coke Zero blend of awesome not once…but twice. [If you're wondering why there is no photographic evidence, it is because I consumed it too quickly to document.]

And I definitely consumed almost half of this amazing Berto’s Dark Chocolate White Mint Gelato on Monday night. [Imagine dark chocolate ice cream surrounding broken Andes mints...so that when it was all melty due to the heat, it was like biting into a giant mountain of minty fresh cool river of chocolate...Willy Wonka-style.]

And since I’ve got the hook-up at Central Market now (as I work there and all), I knew that this particular gelato had been discontinued, and therefore would ring up at only $1.99, not the original $8,000,000 or whatever it cost. So I went back and bought the rest of what was in stock yesterday.* By the way, thanks for asking…I DO like to carry gelato home in my purse. What’s the point of carrying around a big bag if you can’t put your groceries in it?

*Which is actually Tuesday, if you are reading this on Thursday.Just to be on the safe side, I also ate Frosted Flakes for breakfast.

Twice. Wouldn’t want oatmeal to get TOO comfortable around here, you know?You see? I haven’t changed! Just because I bought a juicer….…doesn’t mean I’m going to start saying “nom” or “bloobs” (rhymes with boobs) or signing up for marathons or something crazy like that. I just happened to become obsessed with juice because we make some crazy good juices at work.But as per usual, I figured “I can totally do that at home.”So after my food processor and my juicer had sized each other up for a while….…I set out to make some JUICE!In an effort to recreate a drink I had in Costa Rica, I gathered some lemons and limes (to replicate the flavor of a limon as best I could)…
Some cilantro and mint were welcomed to the party as well.

Peeled and ready to rock and roll! (Juice and jive?)Oh. Right.

To quote Miss Britney Spears: “That is just so typically me.”*

*Oh baby, baby.

I told y’all I haven’t changed.(I apparently can’t read either.)

That dark chocolate white mint gelato sounds ridiculously delicious! I doubt I'd be able to find it in stores around here. :(

You'll get the hang of it! I can't imagine all the crazy juice concoctions you're going to come up with.

In the meantime… enjoy that ice cream! I love that they say right on the pint that it's hard to find.

I'm interested to see how you like it! The boyfriend really wants a juicer, but I myself don't really like juice. Of any kind. Perhaps I could get him one as a gift though. "Nom nom nom." Btw, I just found out that nom nom is actually a zombie term. I was (ahem) making fun of something someone somewhere wrote, and the boyfriend shared this with me. I feel stupid for not knowing that. I'm not sure bloobs have any other root meaning.

Michael actually recently became really interested in juicing…only, I'm more interested in smoothies. We're trying to meet halfway on that one!
