the new Jakob Dylan album, and the new one by Damien Rice. Having spent most of yesterday drinking $8 bottles of Jacob's Creek sparkling with strawberries, I thoroughly enjoyed my vege feast from Fidels on Cuba St this morning.
1 frozen or fresh banana
A couple of tablespoons of tinned crushed pineappple, with a little juice
A little vanilla ice cream, or yoghurt if you have either snouting around
A dash of runny honey
A little pinch of cinnamon
A drop of vanilla
Put all ingredients in a blender, then add milk - but not too much. It depends on how thick you like your smoothies. Blend until smooth. Enjoy!
Ryan is self-proclaimed food trash, and wasn't going to have one because of the pineapple, but I bullied him into trying it and even he said it was delicious. Not as good as the afghans apparently, but a nice healthy alternative to chocolate milk (sort of) when hungover and craving dairy. I'm now going to whip up some strawberry mascarpone tarts to take to my friend Claire's for dinner. And on the blog this week? My wine matched degustation dinner at the Tasting Room, Toast Owhiro, cheap malaysian and stories of my dilemma with lamb. Watch this space.
