Do they know what they are getting into?

Updated: Mar 16, 2020

Fabio Viviani from “Top Chef” is going to be in Rockford on Thursday at the Coronado Theater.

So, what does that have to do with the Organizing Mommy? A lot.

Just because I do not watch T.V. or do anything cool for that matter, does not mean that I don’t stumble upon a magazine once in a while. And if someone delivers a free magazine to my door, I’ll probably pick it up and read it. So, that’s what happened.

I noticed a cooking contest. I decided to research it online and submit a recipe. Since the deadline was the day after I noticed the contest, I tried sending a link of one of my recipes from THIS little blog. Yes, the little organizing mommy blog with my hokey pokey recipes.

First of all, can you guess which recipe I submitted?

That weird GREEN SMOOTHIE recipe that is my own rendition of the green goodness..

Here’s my little recap of that post:

Green Smoothies revisited..

This does not require

1. buying any expensive equipment

2. buying strange foods that are hard to find

3. or taking hours and hours to prepare something that will be consumed immediately.

But, I am not saying that it’s not weird!!

For once, it’s not my hair that’s weird. It’s just my.. food.

So, what is this weird food that I am eating??

It’s spinach that makes it green. Weird, I know. To make it worse, you combine several cups of leafy goodness with frozen fruit, yogurt, orange juice concentrate–to cover the taste.

There are several variations to this, but it is pretty good!

So, the next time you see me, and I have green things hanging from my teeth, you’ll know it’s part of the reason for my energy. Just call me pop-eye.. olive oil? Just don’t call me late for my green smoothie!


Frozen mango (1 cup)

plain yogurt (1/2 cup)

fruit juice or water (1 cup)

spinach (2 cups)

frozen juice concentrate 2-3 spoons full

ground flax seed 1 T.

protein powder 1/4 cup (optional)

Whirl around/ blend smooth

bon apetit!

Now, can you guess who made it into the top 5 finalists? Yes. That’s right. So, I’ll be at the Coronado Theater Thursday night. First, I have to go over to Giovanni’s and demonstrate my recipe for Fabio, and then I have to go to the V.I.P. party and THEN watch the cooking show at the Coronado.

So, that’s that. Pray for me. I’m not even sure how to prepare for this. Any ideas?

Remember that I was trying to prepare him? Should I call my mind-mannered husband who is studying Greek at Moody this week at prepare him for my fame, or just let him watch it on T.V.? Who knew it would come THIS soon, eh? I think I’ll hold a press conference for my kids, the other homeschool moms and the chipmunks in my neighborhood. LOL. Really. On second thought, I hope I remember to go!
