Not-so smoothie - Win a $150 Visa Gift Card from The Laughing Cow

This is sponsored content from BlogHer and The Laughing Cow.



Adding healthy stuff like vegetable puree to kids' meals hoping it goes undetected, is a popular concept to get a little more nutrition in them.

I'm not very good at it.

The Internet is rife with people extolling the virtues of smoothies. More specifically, smoothies made supersonically healthy by putting spinach in them.

Spinach? Yeah, that's what I thought, too, but people swear you can't taste it.

I like to think I'm open to new things, and there's no doubt I need to eat more vegetables, so I thought, "Why not give it a try?" I mean, if it's good enough for the Internet, it's good enough for me.

Internet? You lied. My beloved strawberry-banana smoothies were green, slightly earthy and had stems.

What? You're supposed to use baby spinach? Take out stems? Use less? Uh...

So, I either need a new recipe, a new blender, or I just need to grow up.

Have you had any funny food mishaps in your quest to eat more healthfully?

  • Yesterday my husband tried making a smoothie but he didn't put the lid on the blender tightly enough and the contents squirted all over the kitchen counter. It was a pretty funny sight.

  • Actually I had quite a lot of mishaps on my quest to a healthier lifestyle.
    For two weeks straight , I used sugar with my oatmeal , instead of Honey. Clumsy me... I bought the Honey and never opened nor used it for two weeks.

  • well this is my sister's story, but i have permission to use it. When she was learning to bake, she couldnt tell the difference betwen salt and sugar, so she added 1.5 cups of salt instead of 1.5 cups of sugar to a cookie recipe, and needless to say they were NOT edible!

  • My husband works in education and his kids were coloring pictures of themselves, and this one little boy walked up with a picture that was only half done, so my husband asked the kid, why didn't you color the boy in the picture in? He's blank, and the boy replied "I can't find the caucasian marker" We thought it was cute :)

    Comment: My story consists of a cat that likes water and a toilet. Our cats usually jump up onthe toilet lid to get to the sink for some water, but I dont think they realized that we have to put the lid down before they can jump up, and one day our little boy kitten jumped up, not thinking,and in he went . . . so we had to wash him off, as we hadn't flushed yet :-/

  • Here is a "funny" story, but more like frustrating:
    Our brand new Amana dishwasher broke 10 months after we got it, so we had one ocmpany out, then another company out to fix it, only to find out the part we needed was backordered for 2 months, so they decided to replace it, so we waited 3 weeks for that to come in, and when they came to deliver it, we found out it wouldn't fit . . . so now it's been 3 months and we are still without a dishwasher . . . funny, isnt it? :-P

  • This morning, I went to our local farmer's market and tried Indian food for the first time. It was this tortilla-bread thing with spinach on the inside. What I WASN'T expecting was the strong CURRY attached to said spinach. Too bad the dude behind the table wasn't selling water, too! I couldn't even talk to him because my lips were on fire!

  • It wasn't funny at the time but I actually once blew up the stove. Now it wasn;t like it totally blew up but I was cooking pasta and the water spilled on the flat top. This stove was old so the water leaked into where the heating elements are and it sizzled and popped and ons of black smoke came out. Luckily the breaker turned off and besides some smoke & the fire alarm going off, it was fine. The alarm company called and checked onme and I said, it;s fine. Nothing is going on. THey sent the fire dept anyway. So 2 fire trucks show up with about 10 firemen. The problem, I am in my jammies with my hair up like Pebbles Flintstones and I look like heck. They all came in, checked everything out and left. When I looked out the whole neighborhood was out. It was enarrasing but now funny!

  • I absolutely always forget to read the packages for calories and fat grams which means that even though I am trying to eat better I fall off the diet wagon more than stay on. I also tend to sneak snacks in the dark kitchen so I don't wake the kids or maybe because I don't want to share. I once put bottled blue cheese salad dressing on my ice cream in the dark--grabbed the wrong bottle.

Every time I'd tell my family that I was going to make it, I'd find that I didn't have one ingredient that I needed or I didn't have the right size pan. I am FINALLY making it today. And I'm making three of them so I can freeze two so I don't have to go through this again in the near future!

    I thought I'd serve a healthy plate of cheese and crackers, with grapes and melon cut into small pieces...it seemed to be a great idea..., until, as I prepared it (and our guests said they looked forward to this snack, chatting in the living room)....our cat jumped up and grabbed the piece of cheese and ran throought the living room...how could I serve more cheese after that?!

    It became a dear joke after some time passed, about our cheese-cat!

  • I have a tendency to burn anything I'm making and constantly set off the smoke detector when I'm cooking. My husband, children and I went to a restaurant for dinner and as we sat there, someone's pager went off across the restaurant and it sounded just like our smoke detector. My son turned to my husband and said "That sound means dinner's ready at home!"

  • When I was in 7th grade my Mother and I were making a Genoise Cake for my French class. It was the first time I had ever seen baking chocolate. And at 12 years old you'd think I'd get the clue when my Mother said NOT to taste it because it's not sweet. Well, I didn't listen. I took a HUGE bite of it. It was awful! The most horrible taste ever. After drinking a few glasses of milk and brushing my teeth twice I finally got the taste out of my mouth and the chocolate out of my teeth. I learned never to do that again and to always listen to my Mom. Thanks so much for a chance.

The other day the blender wasn't doing so hot so in my INFINITE wisdom I stuck a steak knife in the blender. (Yes, while it was blending.) Needless to say I am lucky to have all of my fingers but the blender is shot to heck and back now! I really need a new one!

    When I was a kid my mom was making ice cream out of snow. She put the snow and an egg (and whatever else?) in the blender and turned it on high. Without the lid. Egg and snow stuck to the ceiling. I thought it was pretty funny.

  • Not a “real” cooking story, but so very funny. My husband had to dig up a pipe in the backyard to fix it. When he was done, he was going to seed it over, but the boys loved to dig in the dirt, so we decided to leave it for them to play in. A few weeks ago – the day after a rain – they went outside to play and I was getting dinner ready, doing chores, etc. I could hear them, but was so surprised after almost an hour that there was no fighting, yelling, crying, etc. I was thinking to myself, boy, they are getting along so nicely, I have such good boys maybe we can go out for ice cream after dinner as a treat. I stepped outside to compliment them on their behavior, and this is what I was greeted with

    I must have said something like “What possessed you?” and my youngest (the one covered from head to toe) said “I was making mud pies for dinner, but the recipe went all wrong!” I could not do anything but laugh, but needless to say, the area was seeded by the weekend!

She had a can of dog food on the flat top stove and it overheated and exploded...we can assume, there were "bits" (or kibbles maybe) in the sauce.

  • Was blessed with an old-world grandmother. Although she didn’t teach me how to cook, I had an expectation of a high level of home cooking.

    When I went to college some young women tried to impress me with a “home cooked meal.” Well, they (the dinners) were disasters.

    I learned to feed myself, simple meals, likely solely by osmosis.

    The young women would throw up their hands, as if in surrender, and I had to do the cooking.

She was like "Help yourself!" So I looked around in the fridge and I'd seen her cook zucchini before & it smelled amazing so I grabbed what I thought was a zucchini, cleaned it up, chopped it up and cooked it. Then when I was eating I was like "This doesn't taste so great." I didn't finish it & tossed it. I asked my mom the next day "What was wrong with that zucchini you bought? Did I not cook it right or something?" She was like "What zucchini? You mean the cucumber???" So yeah, I cooked and ate a cucumber and it was gross.

  • I'm trying to get my kids to drink more water. Over a month ago my daughter opened a jug of water, poured some in a glass and then protested to drink it. I was saying drink it because it's good for you. She told me to drink it...that's when i realized it smelled like plastic VERY strongly. There was no way that this was good. I called the company & they sent me a refund for the jug and were to send a container to put a small amount of the water in so then I could mail it to them for testing....however the container and mailer never arrived. I take it they're not as concerned over it as we initially thought? They said it's normal sometimes for the plastic to "leak" into the water and this to happen since it's recycled plastic. My kids now are asking how water can be healthy now due to this happening.

  • I just started cooking a couple of years ago (at age 62). I was gifted a turkey for Thanksgiving so decided I would figure out how to cook it. I researched and had all my instructions. After I prepped the bird and put it in the oven, I was very proud. What I didn't realize for a few hours was there were 2 packs (neck, gizzard, etc.) inside the bird and I had only removed one of them.

  • One day a friend and I were eating lunch together. She happened to have pizza and I can't remember what I was eating. Anyway, during the course of our lunch we were talking and laughing. At one point, my friend laughed so hard that her bite of pizza flew out of her mouth and landing on my clothing!

  • Recently we stopped buying chocolate milk because I learned of how much sugar is added. My 5 year old son exclaimed to my 8 month old daughter that she can only have white milk when she gets older- chocolate milk is BAAAAAAD! it was too cute.

  • I pureed a bunch of veggies and added them to our usual pasta sauce. My DD took one bite and gave me this *look* then said "Mama, this is not our regular sauce. It's okay, I'll eat it, but next time please warn me when you change our regular stuff" she's 4, the cheeky monkey!

  • I thought I was being slick by hiding vegetables in the dinner. When we all sat down, my son yelled out "nobody eat... mommy hid the hedgetables in our food!!"

  • I was cooking my first thanksgiving dinner and I was around 19 teen. I cooked the turkey but did not tke the inside packlet out. I thought it was ready to go in the oven. Luckly it was only my mom and dad, boyfriend. It was a wonder he still married me after he found I could not cook:))

  • I try eating healthier by adding oatmeal to my breakfast routine. But for a while I was buying the sweetened/flavored ones...way too much artificial stuff and sugars. Now I sweeten the plain myself! Contact info on my blog, thanks!

  • I have a funny story. I told my daughter that I could change the color on tv. We watched the Wizard of Oz and I told her I would change the color after Dorothy’s house crashed in the tornado. Her eyes opened up wide, and she was like, “Wow, Daddy, you were right!”

  • Under the theme of hiding nutritious stuff in "regular" food, I still will give my toddler pureed baby food by calling it a "smoothie" and putting a straw in it. He's a texture junkie, so this is how I win the veggie battle with him.

    Also ditto to @Angel- Rutgers Univ has food trucks and the "Fat Cat" is a popular 1AM treat. Funny when the cook yells out "Who ordered the Fat Cat with a Diet Coke?" Wasn't me!

  • I am a horrible cook. I like to make simple things like rice. Well the other night i decided to make some popcorm to snack on, i havent made it in months, and somehow i managed to think it takes 4 minutes to pop. Needless to say my night was spent trying to fan out the smoke and burnt popcorn smell. Since then i switched to making Jello as my night snack.
