Taste Test

Homemade Almond Milk (Almonds, Water, Maple Syrup, Lemon Juice, Salt) vs Commercial Almond Milk (Vanilla Almond Breeze)

Almond Breeze: Creamier, Sweeter, vitamin enriched, more expensive

Homemade: Fresher, Watery-er, little bits of almond make my throat feel scratchy, less ingredients (Needs work, but pretty good.)

Sonar and her squash

Sonar loves this new toy we got at REI. It's made of eco friendly materials, and it's recyclable. It also has a minty smell and bounces in really silly directions, which Sonar LOVES.

This is Billy the Turtle. I moved him out of an on-ramp in Michigan a few years ago. How neat is he?

Glass Straw

So I've been using the glass straws sold on for about 3 months now, and they are AWESOME. You'd think that they'd be weird, but they're not. They have a lifetime guarantee against breaking (will replace). They come with a neat little scrub brush to clean them out so they don't get gunky. I like drinking large glasses of water and warm soup through them. Yes, warm soup. What a nice clean way to eat soup without a spoon. Obviously only blended up soups work.

Thank You Kong

Frozen Kongs = Peace and Quiet

This one had blended up mixed (frozen in a bag) veggies and applesauce, stuffed in and frozen over night, topped with a dab of peanut butter. Peanut butter is awesome. Sonar will do ANYTHING for peanut butter.
