Almost daily I get a text between 3:00 and 4:00 inviting me to hoop with Andrea and her neighbor girls. Brianna, 11, is a natural. She learns moves/tricks and then show us how “easy” they are. Yea, if your a natural!
This is a very fun part of my day. I found the fun of hooping (yay!) in August of 2010. In fact I was looking for a fun (emphasis on fun) physical activity. At 52 I needed a fun physical activity. I was sitting to much.
Years of standing as a hair dresser had help me stay some what trim, but my pulse (and weight) were rising… steadily. So I was looking when I saw a FB post about a hoop jam. I loved it, and now I love the fun I get to have with Andrea and Brianna. And other friends. *:)
Green Bean Soup
1 pound of fresh green beans
~1/2 to 1 cup water
~1 to 2 cups milk
salt & pepper to taste
Water and milk amounts give you playing room with the thickness & creaminess of the soup.
rinse green beans
steam green beans with water until very soft (I do this in the microwave)
“blend” with water I ad salt here
(I just use enough water to not kill my machine)
add warmed milk to desired thickness
pour over rice for a meal or serve a small bowl as a side dish.
add Pepper to taste
I don’t heat the milk in summer for a very refreshing side dish soup.
