What are you doing to me, Rochester??
Isn’t it hard enough to stay focused on studying for my Biochem exam tomorrow in the dead of winter? Now you have to go and dangle spring in front of my face?
If you haven’t been paying attention, today the weather in Rochester, NY was supposed to hit 68 degrees.
The past few weeks it’s barely been above freezing and I’ve been bundled up to my eyebrows with a down coat and flannel lined pants.
For no reason at all, today the temperature skyrocketed, and this was the beautiful spring view out my back window.
January 13th… are you freaking kidding me?
In response to everything I’ve come to understand about the unforgiving, unyielding East coast winters being thrown out the window, I decided to take a little siesta from my homework and celebrate by using my new blender.
And something wonderful happened. A nutritious, thick, fruit smoothie from only things that were lying around my house.
Cran-Blueberry Citrus Smoothie
Makes 1 serving
