At the dawn of 09 it was out with the 10 dozen Christmas cookies and in with loads of this….
Fortunately my kids like all sorts veggies and fruits. I visit the fruit market once or twice a week. Oh, they like the cookies too but are taking part in mom’s limited sugar mandate and they are so appreciative—NOT!
Everything was fine and dandy until they caught a glimpse of me pulling out the juicer. It was then the moans began as did the pounds of carrots being pummeled into liquid.
They have been troopers…they plug their nose, down the veggie potion and secretly pray mom gets over this phase before their skin turns orange.....
Well this morning I thought their prayers would surely manifest. Even though I was juicing while they were in school, I am ever mindful of them, as I store their share in the frig for an nice afterschool snack. How nice am I?!
I was happily creating my concoction when there was a loud sound and a puff of smoke. Oh no, I thought…she bit the dust…my precious juicer that has been with me longer than my dear children. Well after cleaning and some investigation I decided to try it again and was back to juicing in no time. Phew, my kids would have their yummy juice after all.
Upon finishing I noticed something floating in the glass of juice. Fortunately I did not shrug it off as pulp because as I scooped out the small mass I noticed legs….8 to be exact. Well there was supposed to be 8 anyway. Ew gross, that noise and puff of smoke wasn’t my juicer biting the dust it was a spider’s last moments of life and its remains were now in my juice.
So I am wondering does anyone know the nutritional value of an arachnid? Hey it might make for a new protein drink.
