Icebreaker and a delicious smoothie

Hello! Happy Friday!

It dawned on me this morning that you have no idea who I am; asides from of course, being slightly crazy, obsessed with food but not cooking, and a slow runner. So, I’m going to spend a little time helping you get to know me. Enjoy!

But first… it’s smoothie time! I made a delicious chocolate peanut butter banana smoothie that was oh so yummy.
