Papaya Love

When we can get fresh (good) papaya I go a bit nuts.
I think I'm eating two papayas a week
mainly making these yummies...

Papaya Smoothies

Chopped papaya (I usually use about 1-2 cups of papaya)
Ice Cubes (also 1-2 cups)
Milk (just enough to cover ice and papaya)
(and sometimes I add a bit of honey if papaya's not really sweet)
Sometimes I'll add a Tablespoon or two of Greek Yogurt

Blend until good and frothy!

On Cookie Transport

The boys went to the lake this past weekend 
and I thought of a new way 
to carry cookies!

1.  Make cookies!  (These were Snickerdoodles, a good traveling cookie.)

2.  Cut two strips of waxed paper, criss-cross and tape. (measure around outside of a clean "Pringle chip" type can and add 3-4" to determine length of strips.)

3.  Place strips in can with cross near top of can. 

4.  Hold ends of strips and start stacking cookies!  You will slowly lower them into the can as you add cookies. 

The boys report that the cookies traveled without breaking and stayed fresh!  Great for fishing or camping trips!
