In the kitchen!

I don't cook.
I make things.
For dinner and what not.
And I bake.
But.
I don't cook.
Usually.
I married a cook.

But....
The twins and I are always in the kitchen "making" things!
So, I told them this week we had to "make" something
for Mommy to take pictures and post the recipe.
And I asked them what they wanted to make.

It was morning time, so they ecstatically YELLED
"FRUIT SMOOTHES!"

Step 1:
Dress Appropriately

(Austin left, Logan right)
(Even if we are just making jello, we always, always have to dress appropriately!)

Step 2:
Cut up your choice of (frozen) fruit.
Strawberries
 Bananas
Mixed Berries


Cut some into really tiny slivers.
and leave some whole.
Just to be random.

Step 3:  Sample a lot of the frozen fruits while you're cutting.

 Step 4: Concentrate.


Step 5: Really, really concentrate.


Step 6:  After the fruit is all cut up and added to the blender,
Add some regular milk.
And
You MUST use COW milk, too!!!
Or it will not get eaten.

(cow milk is condensed milk!  hahaha)

We don't mearsure anything.
We taste to perfection.

Final step:
Approve of the outcome!

(At some point, they switched. Logan is now left and Austin, right!?)

Austin and Logan highly recommend serving the Fruit Smoothies in the Special Pink and Yellow cups.
The ones that Mommy and Daddy got on a cruise.
Before we were around.
Even though said cruise line ran into a little touble this week!

Chaos always ensues during the final steps - of adding (both) milks, taking turns flipping the blender switch,
Sampling the goods, pouring the mixture into special cups, etc. 
So, this is the only picture I got of the end result! 

Bon appetit!
