Oh the weather outside is frightful,
but the fire is so delightful,
And since we have no place to go,
Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!’
Would believe it if I told you, the lyrics of this famous song was written in 1945, during a hot summer in California by Sammy Cahn and Julie Styne.
Writing about the snow during the heat of summer, is – as my mother used to say, ‘really thinking outside the box!’My mother loved to think positive and big and if she were around today she would be spreading words of comfort to those of you, whose homes and businesses are at risk of becoming flooded at the moment. She like Teresa Mannion would say’ Don’t make unnecessary journeys, don’t take risks on treacherous roads’. Stay at home, she would persistently urge and prepare nourishing drinks to keep you warm and strong to face what challenges that may lie ahead.
She called her favorite nourishing drink Zingy Zip idée, which she believed, soothed all ailments especially those brought on by the cold weather.
This drink is very easy to do and only takes a few moments to prepare.
It consists of the following ingredients which are blended together in a juicer
- Six apples, unpeeled.
- Two bananas.
- One teaspoon of smooth peanut butter.
It is a delight to drink and is brimming with slow releasing sugar . The apples give the body an instant boost and the the bananas slow release of sugar keeps the body energized throughout the day. Peanut butter is high in protein, iron, magnesium, vitamin C and folic acid; All of which is necessary to maintain the body at optimal health.
Note to self.
I will be up bright and early tomorrow Monday, thinking about all of you my children.
Unfortunately however, I will not be close to a computer as I need to spend time meeting family and friends in person as you do during this time of peace and goodwill.
This post is my replacement of my early Monday Morning Post guys and I hope that is OK with You?
In the meantime it might be interesting if you prepared my mammy’s zingy Zip idee juice today and bring it to work in the morning.
I would love to know how you got on
Stay well and keep warm my friends in this terrible wet weather.
Hugs and love,
