News, food and a return?

This once a year blogging has got to stop. I am going to try hard to return to the blogosphere now.

It seems that everything happening right now in our lives is new! I got a new job at the end of February. I started working a couple of days a week at my local yarn store. It is literally 10 minutes away by car, if there is not a lot of traffic. I can even take public transit if I need to. I am also working as a Knitting Tech Editor. Editing knitting patterns for designers. I'm taking a lunch break right now from that in fact. I am loving my life!

In other news, our oldest, John got accepted into Pharmacy school for this fall. He'll be moving down to Corvallis at the end of summer. I will really miss having him around. Kim and the dogs will be here to keep me company though!

I made an Orange Julius a few weeks ago and it was really good. I based it off of this recipe. Today I made another one, just a little bit different. It is very tropical tasting, just what we need in this rainy season.

2 cups Pure Silk Coconut Milk
1/2 can of orange juice concentrate
1 fresh, ripe banana or frozen banana
approximately 1 cup frozen pineapple tidbits
1 TBSP vanilla extract
2 TBSP sugar
1 TBSP chia seeds
Ice cubes optional to make it more frozen
