One of the things I hate most after going on a trip, and camping in particular, is the unpacking, cleaning and reorganizing of everything. I swear our car always seems fuller on the way home – isn’t it supposed to get lighter after we’ve gone through a bunch of food? Yes, today was spent attempting to get things back in order, and to top it off it was like a bazillion degrees outside (okay, like 91) and I was exhausted, and before I knew it, it was lunchtime. A lot of times on weekdays I’ll walk the kids down to our town’s summer lunch program and let them eat at the school and then when we get back I’ll work on leftovers for or make a salad for myself, but when it gets super warm like it was today I don’t feel like eating a whole lot, so often times I’ll just eat a snack bar and make a quick berry smoothie to tide me over for a few hours. It’s also my go-to food when I’m in a hurry and need something nutritious to keep my body functioning during the day!
I used frozen berries this time – one thing I do every summer is pick a bunch of blueberries with the kids and freeze them all with my vacuum sealer so that I can use them all year long in many different recipes.
