Is anyone trying to gain weight? I am forever on "a diet" to lose weight but for those who have a hard time keeping it on smoothies are great for that!

Start with a banana or two, throw in some berries (it doesn't matter what kind) blueberries, strawberries, blackberries or raspberries. I always put a yogurt in for a smooth taste, 1-2 scoops of protein mix and  vanilla ice cream, that is the "creme de la creme" of this recipe. Ice cream makes the smoothie takes great! Today I added one peach and one apple. Other fruit is optional. Then blend it all together. 

And voila! You have the best smoothie this side of the Mississippi!! Or anywhere, for that matter! Here's to happy blending! Have a great rest of the weekend!

One of My Favorite Poems

It's like a dream, a vision. Just close your eyes and listen to the words of the video. Let it take you to another place far away. A place called "Xanadu". I fell in love with this poem in high school. I had the best teachers on the planet that introduced all this poetry to me at such an early age. I've loved it ever since. I hope you love it as much as I do. Sweet reveries. 

Kubla Khan by Samuel Coleridge
In Xanadu did Kubla Khan
A stately pleasure dome decree:
Where Alph, the sacred river, ran
Through caverns measureless to man
Down to a sunless sea.
So twice five miles of fertile ground
With walls and towers were girdled round:
And there were gardens bright with sinuous rills,
Where blossomed many an incense-bearing tree;
And here were forests ancient as the hills,
Enfolding sunny spots of greenery.

But oh! that deep romantic chasm which slanted
Down the green hill athwart a cedarn cover!
A savage place! as holy and enchanted
As e'er beneath a waning moon was haunted
By woman …
