Coolest thing that happened over the weekend? My team and I won Harry Potter trivia on Saturday night! With 21 teams, we were convinced we would be trailing after missing 4 of 32 questions in the first half. As we listened to them counting down the top 15 teams we began to get worried as they neared the top 5 and we had not yet heard out team name – could we really have been worse than #15? 5 – not us, 4 – still not us, 3 – could we really be in the top two? 2 – yet again not us. Low and behold we were rocking the #1 spot! Tension rose for the second half as we fought to retain our throne of nerddom and despite missing a few more questions we the reigning champions in the end. To make it even sweeter we won half of money collected to participate ($5/person) which amounted to $200 or $50/person. Who knew Harry potter knowledge could earn money? We proceeded to bar hop around the Knoxville Market Square-area to celebrate.

Coolest thing that you should cook this week? This creamy peanut chicken made with coconut milk, peanut butter and just a little kick thanks to some garlic-chili paste. Lots of flavor for a quick weeknight meal.

Strawberry-Banana Colada Smoothie

Happy SSS! After a week full of ice cream, it’s time to share a smoothie that has spinach in it – but doesn’t look like it! Normally when I make smoothies I go for the vibrant green monster. But every now and then I try something new. This particular smoothie caught my eye because pictures of the original recipe still showed a pink smoothie despite having a little bit of spinach blended in. When I made it, it did not come out as pink but it isn’t green either. It was a good change from my normal routine and the addition of tropical flavors was perfect for the summertime.
