Mallards and Soy Milk

Apparently this didn’t post when it was scheduled last night. :)

Your inquisitive mind is probably asking, “What in the world do these things have in common, Mallards and soy milk?” Well, the answer is…me. It makes perfect sense now, doesn’t it? 

Hubby is working late tonight, so I decided to have a Green Monster Smoothie. Any trip to the kitchen requires a peek out the window to see who might have stopped by for dinner.

The Mallards were back!  I snapped a few photos, then set about making the smoothie.

Blender is clean, check. Frozen bananas, check. Peanut butter, check. Oh, look! SHINY! The setting sun was reflecting in the window of a neighbor’s garage. Snap a picture, ok. Back to the smoothie. Soy milk…and this is where things went terribly wrong. I broke rule #4! “Twist collar onto jar. Be sure to engage threads properly and securely.” I poured a cup of Silk Very Vanilla soy milk into the blender, only to watch it run out the bottom as quickly as it was poured in the top. Of course it was sitting on the blender base at the time, which immediately turned from black to white–just like that! <snaps fingers> 

No, I didn’t get a picture, was too busy cleaning it up before it ran off onto the floor; and no, I didn’t do a reenactment for you, either!
