Hey Look… It’s a Cantaloupe Coconut Lassi.There are some days when I would just die to have you in the kitchen with me.
And then, there are others when I thank the universe that no one can see me.
Yesterday was both.
Lots of delicious things came out of my kitchen. Also coming out of my kitchen? A very loud, off-key version of Lisa Loeb’s Stay not in tune whatsoever while it played on Pandora after I overflowed a mason jar with beer and ate about 16 maraschino cherries from the jar. And the overflowing foam looked so pretty that I then intentionally overflowed it again just so I could take a picture. Which I didn’t even get. Boo freaking hoo.
In addition to all of the things that materialized in my kitchen, it was 5 million degrees and I finally let the heat win. I needed something cold and while I wished it was an entire gallon of Phish Food, that was practically impossible to eat while doing a bunch of other things. The only thing I could add to my multitasking list was a straw.
So I did!
This is totally healthy too. And it tastes good. And it’s somewhat filling. And it doesn’t even have chocolate? I’m so confused.
Buuuut I just happen to think it’s the new perfect snack. Plus it was an interesting new way for me to consume cantaloupe which I’ve been totally destroying this week. True story: I’m on my 4th.
Oh and in case anyone’s interested, I just wasted 90 minutes of my life watching Wanderlust. What?
