When Cereal For Dinner Is Not Enough

I had a crazy busy day. Spending most of it in Raleigh doing Food Bank work. I ran out at five to try and beat the rush hour traffic to get to school for Carter’s basketball team’s last regular season game. I made it with time to spare.  
It was senior day, a sad time for me since I have come to love the parents of these great seniors. I am not sure what it will be like sitting in the stands without them next year, but of course I am happy that their wonderful daughters are going to be moving on to great colleges.
After a wild game with the DA girls winning, I finally had to leave to get home to take care of Shay. I had not thought about dinner and it was 8:30 by the time I walked in the door. Since Carter was staying for the boys game I opted to eat cereal for dinner. It wasn’t quite enough so when hunger was hitting me at ten I went back to the kitchen.  
This could have been dangerous. I have been doing well staying away from sugar and white flour and I did not want to blow it now. I looked in the fridge and noticed that I have a handful of pineapple, red grapes and blueberries. I threw them all in the blender with a little crushed ice and I grated a little frozen ginger root in. Whiz, whiz, whiz and Poured the purple drink in a glass.
I was thrilled with the spicy and sweet smoothie. The perfect answer to my unsatisfied tummy. Now I feel like I had a full meal and a treat.
