A bright drink to sign off Summer!
Summer has officially ended but there is still warmth in our air and humming birds are still hovering for nectar around vibrant flowers. Don’t we all wish summer should never end!
This storm water pond came to life with ducks, ducklings and cranes…Some delicate darlings visited our garden…Chickadee feet gently tickling when it sat on my palm to peck a seed…Duck wading in duckweed abundance…Flower opening so silently…Summer made me truly happy and here is the proof!
Fall has started with all root vegetables showing up! It’s the season to buy all Autumn coloured vegetables. My husband bought a big bag of plump carrots and I had to find a way to put 10 pounds of that juicy orange stuff to good use. It was wrong timing though!
This week end, I am taking off to India for a 2 month long vacation. I am not sure about my blogging activities when I go back home. I will be pressed for time as I will lavishly indulge in all pleasures that I missed immensely. There is a wedding in our family which will be action packed with a lot of chattering, visiting, shopping and some bitching. It is going to be hectic! Oooh, I am lost in some sweet thoughts!
Before I lose track of those carrots let me mention that I had a light bulb moment. Yes, juice them up! So, I summoned the juice extractor from the storage shelf and got that contraption ready for some motion. The result was delightful and filling!
- About 20 carrots
- 1 cup milk
- ice cubes
Juice carrots by sending them through the feeder tube in a juicer. Collect juice in the container provided. (There was no need to add sugar as this juice was very sweet.) Drink it chilled or add ice cubes. Add milk for a different flavour and enjoy! Or have a party!
