What Katie Ate on the Weekend

 Katie Quinn Davies of the blog, What Katie Ate, produces a beautiful blog.  In fact, it is an award winning blog. After a stint in graphic design, Katie turned toward photography and was soon shooting for everything from Kitchen Aid to Martha Stewart Living.  And let's just say, she was good at it!

In 2010 she did her own little Christmas magazine downloadable to her readers that clocked in at an impressive 495 pages.  Her first cookbook, appropriately titled, What Katie Ate was a huge success.  She came back with What Katie Ate on the Weekend.  Frankly, I think Katie is having better weekends that we are...

As you might have guessed by now, her photos are beautiful, her friends are having a glorious time, the food looks magical, and one feels like a bit of a dullard when flipping through the book.  But then, that is what some cookbooks are for...to lift us out our complacency and to strive for really beautiful weekends.

We are starting out with a smoothie.  Seriously, the girl can make a glass of green sludge look like something you crave!

Super Smoothie

2 kiwi, peeled
1 green apple, cored
3/4 oz. kale or baby spinach leaves
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 small handful of mint
1 large handful of ice, plus extra to serve

Put all the ingredients and 1 cup cold water into a blender and whiz until smooth.

Pour into chilled glasses, add extra ice and serve.

Now drink that down.  You have the entire week to plan and execute a glorious weekend.  Don't dawdle!
