Snowed In.....

It rarely ever happens before Christmas and it isn't often that we get snow here in this part of the NW. But this past weekend everything shut down and life became a flurry of white. From Thursday afternoon until late Saturday evening there was snow, wind more snow and then it all got topped of with a thick layer of freezing ice rain.

I think we probably have 4 to maybe 5 inches of snow here and it is all so pretty. We haven't been completely housebound as my hubby has a 4x4 jeep that seems to conquer the worst road conditions with ease. It has been cute to watch him smile with mischievous delight when asking if I need him to run to the store for anything.

This morning when I got up to the slow drip of melting coldness, I craved something good and green to take the edge off of the unwise snacking we have been doing.

  Lord what can we create this morning that is a bit out of the norm while using up left overs in the fridge?
The answer came back fun and clear.......

 I ran these ingredients thru my juicer:
4 celery stalks
1.5 cucumber
1 red delicious apple
1 granny smith apple
1 pear
2 handfuls green beans
6 romaine leaves
2" fresh ginger

Then I brought out my blender and poured 3 cups of the juice into it along with:
1 banana
1 handful of spinach
3 handfuls frozen blueberries

I did that twice to make breakfast and lunch for both hubby and myself. 
Wow it is really good! 
The green beans give it an incredible fresh kick that washes away the winter freeze outside.  
Thank You God for this great surge of green celebration!

(I apologize. I had pictures here of all the yummy goodness, but I cleared out too many files and lost them)

I pray that wherever you are at you are safe warm and knowing you are loved.
Together let's celebrate God's goodness!
