I recently popped out of town for a few days in search of some snowflakes. There haven’t been too many floating through New York City this winter, and I missed them. I didn’t bring much aside from a few snow clothes and some PJs, though I did manage to sneak in my small travel blender. It’s always great for whipping up a healthy breakfast, like this apple-yogurt mixture, on the road.
