Since it was 40 degrees last week we decided to take advantage of the cold and defrost our freezers. Yes, freezers...more than one. Three full size to be exact. What do you put in three freezers!?! Well if you must ask...
One is full of meat. Beef, pork, chicken, fish...you name it we have it. Last summer we bought half a cow from my dad's uncle and quarter of a pig from our friends. For anyone who hasn't had farm fresh meat, you're missing out! Not only is it better for you, it tastes 110x better! If you are ever given the opportunity to buy local meat do it. Definitely worth the extra penny!
Freezer two has vegetables. Corn, green beans, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, onions, peppers, zucchini, applesauce, soup, coleslaw, pickles. Basically this freezer is our garden. One problem...every year our garden gets bigger, and the freezer seems to be getting smaller. Christmas 2014:
new computer freezer four?
The last one has stuff we need on a daily basis. Bread, muffins, fruits, chocolate chips, butter/margarine, pie fillings, pie crusts, apple dumplings, ice cream. Do you think we like dessert? We LOVE it!
So there's our freezers. Well in the middle of defrosting the third (everyday) freezer I found some blueberries. Not sure how long they'd been in there I figured I better use them pretty quick. But what do you do with a gallon zip lock bag of frozen blueberries? Smoothies!
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 cup greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- ice (if using fresh berries)
Combine all ingredients in a blender.
Blend until smooth.
