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! 

A merry heart is a good medicine: but a broken spirit drieth up the bones. Proverbs 17:22

  1. I was laughing when I saw the title of this post in my email…when I read it,I was laughing out loud…not at you, of course…just at the image of your smoothie running all over the counter…hahaha!

    Great photos, by the way…love those mallards…reminds me of my mom…we used to go to one of the state parks and walk around the lake…the ducks always followed us around the lake…I don’t think they liked our company all that much, think they were just hoping we brought bread that day…


    • It’s always funnier when it is someone else, Patti! I’m glad I made you laugh.
      I used to take our daughter for walks to the pond with bread. She wasn’t much taller than some of those geese. One came over and tugged on her jumpsuit, like hey, feed me, feed me. I thought it was funny, but she might not have at the time. Wish I’d had a camera with me!


  2. Well, that’ll teach you to make a smoothie! I haven’t messed up the bottom part, but I did start the blender once without the stopper piece in the center of the lid. Oops 🙂

    Those Mallards sure are a cute couple. Thanks for sharing the pics!


    • Making smoothies for dinner is my new favorite way to cook! lol Even making a mess like this is better than pots and pans, right? I just need a drain in the kitchen floor and a garden hose. Glad you like the Mallards. I stopped in and got more corn for them today.


  3. The reflective shots of the window are beautiful. I am a sucker for reflective shots. I love the mallards, too. Glad they returned for another visit.
    My neighbor brought over a green smoothie for me to try – banana, kale, pears, and other stuff I can’t remember right now. It was good – not my favorite, but I did like it.

    We are a soymilk family, and we have smoothies every day. Love ’em!
