Yummy Creamy Goodness- without milk

Recently my insides have decided that I can not have a variety of specific foods any more without getting very ill. Milk being one of them, my family has had some concern that I now cannot partake in birthday ice cream. I saw a pin on pintrest about making "ice cream" with just a frozen banana so while they were enjoying a bowl of ice cream from my youngest's birthday, I tried out this banana ice cream- with a twist of my own.
1 frozen banana, 4 frozen strawberries, handful of chopped pecans, 1/2 cup-ish almond milk, Pulse in food processor until smooth. I added the almond milk because I like it creamy - soft serve like. You could add less or more depending on how firm you like it. Mmmmmmm!

I got the table all set up! Drawers are filled, and work space is arranged. I even got to do a little sewing on it already.

I picked out the stool first and then he determined what height to make tabletop.

In 3 drawers I have cans to wind and store all my notions, and 3 drawers hold all of my patterns (Boy/men's, women's, girl's). The drawer above the shelves holds all of my thread and bobbins.

The Lazy Susan isn't quite done yet, but it works nicely. Since both my surger and sewing machine can use the same foot pedal/power cord, I can simply unplug one machine, spin it to the other side, and plug in the other machine. Sweet!

The Susan will not be attached to the table, so if I need extra work space I can move it aside. I can also adjust where the pedal sits, so I can position the machines wherever I need to.

Awesome Daddy

My awesome husband finished my wonderful sewing table.
7 drawers
3 adjustable shelf bookcase
Maple, with bamboo top, and ebony accents

What you don't see is a stand to put the machine pedal at the right height, and it is the perfect height for me to stand and work without killing my back. To top it off, he is making a Lazy Susan for me to put my sewing machine and serger on so I can switch them without moving from my stool. When it is all set up I'll post another picture.

I'm one happy girl!
