First off, I've got a great update on Gimpy. S/he is still alive. And I seriously wondered if that would be the case after we returned from the Great Wolf Lodge Saturday evening. We were only gone a day and a half, and fed them lots before leaving, but still. I'm just unsure why Spyra has eaten parts of him/her. Gimpy has no left arm and only one finger on the right hand and is missing one toe.
I like to watch Gimpy get around. S/he bounces around like a bunny and the one arm stabilizes her every now and again. And what really bugs me as I write is that I don't know his sex. Let me be honest with you. I've yet to touch any of them. But I find them all fascinating none the less.
A high school friend (well elementary and junior high, too) posted a Vitamix recipe on Facebook this evening for orange avocado sorbet. It looked interesting. Mostly the avocado part. Elliott was with me asking for ice cream (Tymon bought some last week) and so I told him I would make some sorbet. It was exactly what he didn't want to hear. Then the whining increased when I told him I was putting avocado in it.
Turns out he tasted it. Loved it. And asked for seconds. Then thirds. And begged for some of mine. It wasn't just him, either. They all wanted more. I especially loved Kira's "cheese" smile for the camera. So cute. Ha ha ha.
Orange Avocado Sorbet:
- 2 oranges, peeled and halved
- 1/4 cup (60 ml) honey
- 1/2 avocado, pitted and peeled
- 1/2 lemon, peeled and seeded
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2"x2" strip of orange peel (5cm x 5 cm)
- 5 cups ice cubes (1.2 liters)
Blend it all up well and then start adding the ice until the sorbet forms. Then eat it as soon as you can. It's truly fantastic!
