Smoothie Sipdown (238)

I am quickly running out of food but I leave in a week so I keep trying to avoid buying food. This smoothie saw the end of my yogurt, my matchas, and left me with only 1 frozen banana. I also have no eggs. No bread. I finished my guacamole this morning. It is getting pretty barren in here but I am trying to just survive off the freezer foods and stuff that I have lingering around.

This smoothie was tasty at least. It had a lot of honey dew flavor. The key is to not use honey and instead use a shitton of the matcha. Then the flavor comes through rather distinctively. Well, as distinctive as honeydew can.

I have the same problem. I’m out of milk but I leave for Florida on Saturday and can’t justify buying a 2L soymilk that I will not finish in time. I ate a smoothie and some celery with dip for dinner last night lol. Tonight looks like its going to be the last of the fruit and some more celery. Maybe a canned soup.

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.

Tea Ratings Guide (as of December 10, 2017)
90-100 Teas I NEED on hand at all times
80-89 Teas I want to keep around for a cup every now and then
70-79 Teas I am glad I have around and can experiment with but probably don’t need more than what’s in my cupboard
60-69 Teas I would not turn down a cup of from a friend but that would probably be enough
50-59 Teas I can see why someone would enjoy but are not for me
Under 50 Teas I really did not like and most likely got dumped
