Simply A Banana Milkshake

I love that my kids think the milkshakes I make for them are the “Bees Knees”. As I watch them down a cup of un-sugared bliss I am content that they are getting the vitamins growing bodies need. This banana milkshake has very fond memories associated with it. Back when I was in college I worked at a local antique car dealership that specialized in rag top convertibles. Hence the name Ragtops Motorcars.

In the evenings the facility was a happening party venue. Private groups to Fortune 500 companies could rent the building or one of it’s (at the time) three levels. A party consisted of cocktail hour, dinner and dancing usually with a 50’s vibe. Guests are greeted by fun, energetic, dancing cast members whose soul purpose is to rev up the party and protect the million inventory. After four hours of twisting and bopping I was completely exhausted. The owners Ty and Sherri Houck, two of my dearest friends, would let me crash at their house so I did not have to make the hour drive home at 2:00 in the morning. When I was not at their house I crashed out on the couch at Emi and Esteri’s house, two more incredible individuals I have had the opportunity of knowing. Some nights after work Emi and I would make banana milkshakes with protein powder and enjoy a slice of toast with Royal Jelly Honey. The perfect end to a day.
