An Ode to the Ninja

It's been a rough week. But the one thing that has done more than anything else to help me through it has been my dear Ninja Master Prep Pro System. Here's a quick photo tour through my morning smoothie preparation.

Part One of a successful base, Kale

Part Two of a successful base, Spinach

You're also going to need help

Lots of wiggly help...

Insert frozen berries...not the best but better than nothing

For consistency...

What ended up being too much honey...

Work it Ninja!

Ta Da! I blended a bit more after this but look how great it is!

On an even better note, this morning I strayed from the berry smoothie and did a fresh pineapple and pink lady apple blend. Ah. May. Zing! In yesterday's Green Bean bin I got a big ol', ripe, delicious, fresh pineapple! This morning I "ran" downstairs like a kid on Christmas to slice my pineapple. It was heavenly.

I'm lucky at least some of it made it into a bowl!

What's your favorite thing in your kitchen?


  1. My favorite thing in my kitchen is a toss up between my Cuisinart 7 cup food processor or my Cuisinart (sooo not sponsored, it's just coincidence) hand mixer/immersion blender thingy. I used the whisk attachment for the first time yesterday, to make whipped cream. It's the fastest thing ever. I think I had whipped cream in under a minute (usually takes me 3+ whisking by hand...but then it's a workout, right?). If you like vegetarian recipes, check out the link "eat like a labbit" on my blog.

  2. When me and my sister used to live together we had a hand food processor but she got custody when we moved out. I need a new one so I'll check that one out. Thanks for the recipes! I can always use more!

Year 30

Is this thing on? I've been struggling with a bit anxiety out of nowhere over the past year and a half so in an attempt to keep my head from spinning I'm going to try my return to writing.

I turned 30 in February and it's seriously been my best year. Suddenly I stopped caring so much about things, and more about *gasp* my family and friends. Weird right? But in caring more about people, I also started to care less about their opinions on my life choices. That said, I am going to provide you with a VERY brief rundown of the 3 major life events happening right now:

We are buying a house! Maybe... Yay right? Back in October I found this really great house under a lease option contract that we ended up snatching up. It's in a nice, established neighborhood where *most* people own and genuinely take care of their houses. Not at the Hank Hill lawn level but I'm talking seasonal outdoor decorations and it just happens to be the neighborhood other parents bring their kids t…

Burn the Past

One of my old pastors used to say "God gave you two ears and one mouth so you could listen twice as much". I've always been a pretty decent listener. I was always in the top 5 during games of Simon Says and with a mother like mine, you needed to do your best to prevent her repeating herself. But one area where I really struggle is listening to what God says to me and what direction to go in my life. I'm a control freak. There, I said it. There have been times in my life where I've had to schedule not only when I would have free time but what I would do during said free time. I've literally put "watch tv" on my calendar. So is it any surprise that when someone says to "let go and let God" I have trouble leaving my entire life and existence to someone other than myself? Not only that, but someone who isn't a someone at all? To someone I can't see, don't understand, don't know how to listen to and just have to have blind faith…

Guess Who's Back

Sometimes my thoughts get really overwhelming and when that happens I usually have to do something active and relatively creative. I've been using coloring books since before they were cool and strangely baking is still a big go-to for me but there's also writing. Today while lamenting to the husband he suggested I write a blog to try to just get shit out. So that's what I'm doing.

We are moving back to Louisville. Yay? I guess that's still TBD. I love Louisville, I really do and I have for years but like a weird, slightly dysfunctional, long term relationship, love just wasn't enough. I felt trapped and suffocated. I had created this identity box for myself and while it worked for a while it eventually turned into my coffin. It was tiny and I didn't feel like it could fit everything I wanted to be a part of my identity. 15 months ago I was exercise and non-profit worker Rennay. That's it. When we moved I realized it was a true clean slate. Absolutely n…
