I’m soo glad it’s Friday. What do you have planned this cinco de mayo weekend?
It’s funny, when I was in my early 20s cinco de mayo meant looking forward to margaritas and coronas, but now I’m just as interested (if not more so) in the guacamole. Is that just me?
I’m really excited about today’s edition of Foodstuff Friday because my guest smoothie-maker is my mother!
Her smoothies are pretty legendary in my family so I hope you’re starting to get excited too.
Just make sure that you follow these instructions down to the letter, because otherwise I can not be held responsible for any injuries, pulled muscles or lack of fun. Her email to me is below:
