Greetings from Vegas! I have to admit, it’s a little strange to be here, of all places, when we open up the sign up for our September Squeeze program (a few spots remain). In today’s newsletter we mentioned our “work”trip to the wild blueberry barrens of Maine. In Bar Harbor, a little competition took place for the best wild blueberry smoothie. I made a basil blend and Carolyn concocted something with avocado. Full disclosure, it was pretty annoying how into food styling their creations some people were. Carolyn and I did not win but our non annoying, awesome friend Marnie did. Here’s her winning recipe.

Enjoy the last days of summer!
