OMG!!! I can’t believe that I did this.

Mike and I went to my girlfriend Robin’s house for a house warming she was having Saturday Afternoon.  So, I got up with every intention of making some salsas with the VitaMix to take to her party!

I made the Tropical Avocado Salsa – Again. Which turned out even better the second time???

Plus, I made a Pineapple Salsa:


1Can Cut Pineapples

2Tbls. Olive Oil

1/2Small Onion, Peel

1/2Orange Bell Pepper

2Tbls. Cilantro

1/2 Lime, peeled

1/2Tsp salt

1/4 Jalapeno Pepper


Oh they tasted soooo good. I also brought along some Tortilla Chips and some Ritz Crackers for dipping. After finishing the dips and running some last minute errands, we arrived at Robin’s house around 1pm.

I met Robin’s parents, her in-laws; it was such a lovely time. And Robin had out her appetizers (my salsas) and then a lunch which consisted of grilling hamburgers and hot dogs, shrimp gumbo, and a big Strawberry Salad. I had every intentions of eating. In fact I was snacking on my dips that I had brought. But as the afternoon went on, my glass of wine kept getting filled (Not once was my glass of wine empty for more than 10 seconds) and before I knew it, it was around 7 or 8 pm in the evening. 

Well, Mike had to pull me away from the festivities which had winded down to an almost screeching halt and drive home. Needless to say, I jumped right into bed and passed out when I got home.

The next morning, I woke up feeling sluggish and brandishing a headache from the night before. I didn’t do much, but watch movies and drink some Fruit Smoothies, Juice and water. I did have enough energy to get up and make my own version of a Strawberry Salad for lunch and for dinner, Mike got take out from The Outback Restaurant. I ordered a Baked Potato and had some more of my Strawberry Salad.

When I wasn’t studying for my Real Estate 14-hour continuing education test…. I was able to make some surprises with my VitaMix. I have to admit, while I was studying I managed to eat some Candy Corn from Halloween and today (Friday) I had some mini Tootsie Rolls. But on the other hand, no white wine or eating out.

So hear are the VitaMix Creations I made (Wednesday):

Wednesday I made Hummus and a Tropical Avocado Salsa… both were fabulous. ! They were so great; I managed to have both for dinner with some Triscuts.
