Supper.

Guess what I had for supper last night?

A big juicy steak with garlic butter and onion strings on top? Nope.

Sizzling chicken fajitas with lots of onions and peppers? Nope again.

One of the fabulous soup recipes that you wonderful people sent to me? Nope. Not last night.

Give up?

A smoothie!

After getting up from the couch after a quick after work nap and readying myself for Bible study, I took a detour to the bathroom and spent the next twenty minutes hugging the toilet. Needless to say, I skipped out on Bible study and spent the rest of the evening on the couch. Nothing at all sounded appealing, so I asked if Husby would make me one of his world famous smoothies.

It was exactly what the Doctor ordered. YUM! The perfect supper for a preggy sickie.

A Smoothie For One

First you take some frozen strawberries and peaches and throw them in a blender.





Then add a few scoops of strawberry yogurt and a few swigs of orange juice and get to blending.

Break out the little bear and add some honey!



Pour in a glass and serve to the one you love.





Yummy. 'Twas delish.

And so far, I have kept it down. Three cheers for Whitney!

I will leave you with a question. As I was enjoying my delightful smoothie, I noticed something rather strange and thought I would ask you if you know the answer.

How come when you look into a spoon, it shows your reflection upside down....but when you turn it around and look at your reflection, you are right side up!? So strange.

  1. MMM that looks good!

    Guess what I had for dinner last night? Your southwestern Taco Pot Pie - it was SO good! Hubby and I both loved it.

    Hope you feel better today!

  6. Hope you feel better- this time of your pregnancy is certainly not the part I look forward to! I just hope my Hubby is as nice as yours... he better be!

    Here is an explanation about the spoon thing: http://www-psych.stanford.edu/~lera/psych115s/quiz/puzzle1.html. What an interesting question I probably never would have thought of!

  7. Husby sounds like a keeper to me.;)

    And I have no idea about the spoon question....I hope that you will give us the answer if you find it though.;)

    I hope that you are able to break away from your toilet hugging very soon.

    God Bless,
    Amy:)

  11. No matter how sick I have ever been, I have never been able to "hug the toilet". Give me a trash can any day. I just can't hang my head over the porcelain bowl. I hope your queasies are few and far between. Yeah for Darin!

  17. I've often wondered the same thing! Kinda like a "Fun House" on the Go!! ;-) Cereal and/or PB&J on toast. Lived on that thru entire 1st 2 semesters of pregnancy!!! Looks like Smoothies might be your sustenance! Lots of vitamins, so, nothing wrong with that!!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I can't answer your question...I never knew that! I am going downstairs to check it out!
    Sorry you were barfing-that is the worst! I only had it with my last one (of three) and I thought for sure that meant I was having a girl...I bought PINK clothes! (I had a third-but wonderful-boy...)

  19. Sorry you felt ill....it will get better. The smoothie looked delish and very refreshing...I want one now.

    I used to eat saltines and drink Sprite (even though I dont like any type of soda) but it seemed to help.

    ReplyDelete
  20. First of all, the smoothie looks delicious! Yummo! Secondly, never even thought about the spoon thing. I will have to test that out. Thirdly, sorry bout the toilet hugging. Too bad you had to miss Bible study! Love ya!

  21. Oh no, the morning sickness has arrived! At least you could hold down that yummy smoothie!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Just wanted to add my congratulations to you and your husband on your wonderful news. I was so excited for you when I read you were expecting.

    I had quite bad morning sickness when I was expecting my daughter. I found those travel sickness bands (they're called Sea Bands in England, maybe they have the same name over there?) helped with the worst of the nausea. They didn't get rid of it completely, but they definitly helped.

    The sickness will be over soon enough and before you know it your precious child will be in your arms. Enjoy being spoilt during this special time.

  23. Yummy looking smoothie you have there (and such a sweet husby!)
    Hope you pass through the nauseous phase quickly :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Such a good idea! I've been enjoying a dinner of saltines and Sprite for several weeks now. Maybe I should switch over to smoothies...

    Thanks for the idea!

    ReplyDelete
  25. so...you're having evening sickness? :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. No fun! But thank goodness for sweet hubbies.

  27. you'd think i was pregnant by the way i eat... :) for dinner i had.... about 2 huge chunks of fresh french bread with butter. YUM. it was delish. that with a great book? oh, i am in heaven! i think i'll have the same tonight with some plain chicken broth... mmmm.... and rent an oldie but goodie movie.... i'm so excited to get home!!! :)

    oh and i've always wondered about the spoon thing too! is it bc one side is convex, the other concave?

    and a question for you! what are some of your favorite-of-all-time movies? i ask bc i'm home alone tonight (husby as you say is working late again) and i don't want to be lonely!

  28. God love fabulous husbands! God sure blessed you with a keeper! :)

    As for the whole spoon thing, its all about lens and mirrors, it's the shape of the spoon and that changes the way light reflects off it, thus the way your image is reflected. That's about as technical as this little English major can be.:)

    Oh, how I long to be your pregnancy partner! :) I'm ready, but my husby isn't yet. I've got to pray for patience! And thanks your play by play of early pregnancy, I love it!

  29. Well congrats on being pregnant! That is so exciting! I am with you on the meat thing...it sounded gross to me in the first trimester too. Smoothies were always good because they are filling but have nothing "gross" in them to make you feel sicker! Feel better!

  30. Sorry you weren't feeling well! :( Smoothies are soo good though! I try to have one every couple of days because they are so healthy and yummy.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Yummy smoothie! What a sweet husby to make that! I'm sorry you were sick though!

    ReplyDelete
  32. That smoothie sounds delish! I'm sure you are glad you found something that doesn't make you sick. That is too funny about the spoon ... never noticed.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Hi! Sorry I have know idea about the spoon!

    However I did leave you some bloggy love on my post today :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Ahh the spoon question... you're so silly! Glad you kept your smoothie down. Welcome the wonderful world of pregnancy. :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Yay for smoothies and for them staying down!

    Hoping you are feeling well!

    i am so happy for you guys!

    ReplyDelete
  36. That does sound yummy, yay for your sweet Hubby :) My Hubs used to make smoothies all the time, I should probably get back into it! That steak sounds good too though, when I was preggers I crave meat (burgers!) like nobodys business! :) I guess my body is saying pass the iron :) I hope you have less of a relationship with the toilet very soon!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I hope you are feeling better today:) I don't know the answer to your question but I'm going to go look at myself in a spoon!

    ReplyDelete
  38. The smoothie looks yummy! What a nice husband you have. I don't know about the spoon thing.

    ReplyDelete
  39. so sorry about the "morning" sickness. I always thought that was a funny expression, since mine was pretty much all day... My friend gave me a great piece of advice, try eating something every 2 hours. Nothing big, just to have something in your stomach all the time. It worked pretty well for me. Just remember, this too will pass!

    ReplyDelete
  40. You notice the most bizarre things! I'm so sorry that the yucky tummy has already set in. Yeah for pregnancy :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. That looks great! I miss having a blender...back on the list now for a someday want....right now I'm working back the large food processor LOL~

    You crack me up with the spoon! Reminds me of my son who came home today and asked where frogs go in the winter. Of course I had to find the answer for him...which by the way is the dig a hole and hybernate underground...

    ReplyDelete
  42. BTW...the only people I know who got sick in pregnancies had girls ;)

    ReplyDelete
  43. How yummy is that! I love making smoothies but I have not done it in so long!

    Hope each day gets better and you feel better!

  44. Ok, the science teacher can answer your spoon question. It has to do with convex/concave and reflection. Concave will always show you upside down! I am so sorry to hear that you upchucked for 20 minutes... Hope you are feeling better.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I was sick - every day for 6 months with two of my four babies...I FEEL YOUR PAIN! Try lemon heads, the candy, and also ginger snaps, they might help you with the queasy belly. Smoothies are great, but sometimes milk wasn't my friend!! Good Luck on your journey to domestic bliss!!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. isn't that a smoothie for TWO? (-:

    ReplyDelete
  47. I am going to try that smoothie!

    Weird about the spoon thing...I'll have to check that out!

    Btw, I purchased a brookstone sleeping mask last night. I"ve been sleeping so bad the last few nights I decided to give it a try, too bad it won't come for 5-7 days!

    this gal is in the same boat as you. go see her. and she is a creator of some sweet apron patterns!

    "This (sickness) too shall pass", will pass very quickly for you, my dear.

  49. Ha! This is funny. So whne I was pregnant I always barfed in the morning after breakfast. So I started drinking smoothies becuase if you are going to throw up, barfing a smoothie is not as disgusting as other things you know. I know this is gross but seriously it's the truth. Just keep remembering that feeling disgusting is a sign of a healyth pregnancy and your way of knowing everything is going well. When it does end, it's from one day to the next and you almost can't even imagine you ever felt like that.

  50. Well, Whitney, have I got a surprise for you! I happen to have several ring pops in my closet that I don't want to give to my kids (they eat too much sugar as it is!) I will try to remember to bring them to church on Sunday and you can add them to your candy dish!

May the Lord bless you and keep you safe today! Thanks for the comment, friends! :)
