Day 5 - Recipes 6, 7, & 8

Today was a busy day. Anya had swimming lessons this morning and a toddler fitness class this evening. So, it was easy meals for us today! We started out the day with Blueberry-Pomegranate Smooties, made a Munchie Mix mid-day, and Sausage with Broccoli and Rice for dinner.

I love the color!
I had some leftover blueberries from dinner last night and I had blueberry-pomegranate juice in the fridge and I decided to throw them together for a smoothie. The smoothie was delicious, but next time I make it I will probably use frozen berries. I just prefer using frozen fruit instead of ice in a smoothie. I like how the frozen fruit not only thickens the smoothie, but it adds flavor at the same time.

Anya's Munchie Mix

So proud of her creation!

Anya really enjoyed making the Munchie Mix. After making it, I divided it into snack sized Ziploc bags and added them to Anya's snack basket. You could do a million things with this mix. Just add what you like!

With having to rush out of the house at 5:15 to head to the post office and Anya's toddler class, dinner needed to be quick and easy. I had some kielbasa that needed to be used, so I threw this together. It was good and definately fit the requirement of being easy. It was a one pot meal, which meant I got the dishes done before we left, too! It wasn't anything spectacular, but it was a healthy at home meal instead of fast food!

As always... the recipes.....
