One of our favorite things to do is go to junk stores. Not your fancy pants antique stores (although we love that too, and dude we just got a real live card catalog today and I’m giddy).
But the side of the road, random crap stores. Two of the best dollars we ever spent is on our juicer. I think it’s an ancient Cuisinart.
I’m pretty sure it’s missing parts, and it doesn’t actually work exactly right, but it does it’s job.
We love our fizzy water, but like a little flavor. So we buy citrus and juice them. This is today’s haul.
Left to right: grapefruit, orange, blood orange, lemon, lime. They’re great for a little zip in your water, a fruit vinaigrette, whatever needs a little acid. I will often freeze them for good ice cubes. I also have cranberry juice in the fridge.
Also in the background are some tangerines and bananas that I’m freezing for smoothies. They’re healthy, and curb my sweet tooth.
I usually do a frozen banana, some other frozen fruit (usually berries) of some kind, and kefir. I’ve tried strawberry and peach, and have plain to try, because I want an orange smoothie.
