Smoothie of the Day (and Happy Birthday Tori Amos) - August 22, 2010

Banana-coffee smoothie experiment
Sundays are great for experimenting, no? I tried making a fruit smoothie WITH coffee. The results were acceptable, though I probably won't make it again this way. For the record, it was cow milk, instant coffee, frozen spinach, a splash of vanilla extract, a whole banana, a squoosh of chocolate syrup, a spoonful of sugar, and a whole bunch of ice. If I do delve into this sort of thing again, I'll use a smaller amount of coffee for sure.

And a happy, happy birthday to my favorite musician ever (even if I haven't absolutely loved her last few studio albums, I will always love her live), Tori Amos. I've been a fan since late 1991 and have seen her in concert (and at a few radio performances, two discussions with Ann Powers, and one book signing) about 40 times over the years. Not much else in my life has been quite that consistent.
