Quail Prosciutto in a Gorgonzola Dressing

Scallops served with Braised Escarole

Grilled Colorado Lamb Chop stuffed with Pesto

We celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary on Wednesday night (and our 10 year anniversary of being together). :-) Both of us worked during the day but decided to have dinner out at a new Italian restaurant in the neighborhood. The food was excellent and it was a lovely way to spend some one-on-one time.

Happy anniversary, my sweet angel! I can't wait for our 20th, 30th, 40th and beyond! You are the true blessing, joy and meaning in my life!

Well hello there, Harry!

Now, I'm not going to sell my stick blender. I swear, I thought it was just for soups! LOL I have a brand new one that was about go on e-bay, but now I can see myself spinning into smoothie oblivion with LC smoothies! Have you ever tried putting unsweetened coconut in, or just the oil?

Happy day to you, Harry!

Another light day of eating, so I'm guessing you're still enjoying great weather. You lucky thing!

Keep up the good work :)

Harry said...

Howdy, Fit. Hope you're recovering well. :-)

I've only used coconut milk and oil in the smoothies. But I'm sure that the coconut meat would probably work out just fine too. Maybe the shredded variety would process easier? Please let me know how it turns out if you try it!

(Belated) Happy day back at ya!

Harry said...

Thanks, Cilla. Will do.

Harry said...

Thanks, Erika.

I've been super busy and feeling sort of down/not so energetic at times. Smoothies help me get some good nutrition when I don't feel up to eating anything else.

The weather does help! :-)

Harry said...

Hope you and your daughter enjoy the shake, Nancy! If not, just play around with the ingredients and see if you can make it work out more to your liking. I'll be happy to learn any tricks that you pick up along the way!

Erika said...

Well I'm impressed that you can keep up your blogging when you're feel a bit down and not so energetic. When I'm not energetic, blogging is probably my first thing to go (sorry!).

So, very impressed! :)

Happy belated anniversary, to Mr and Mrs. Healthy Fellow!!!!

Harry said...

Thanks, Erika! I think the blogging helps get me out of my "funks". It's one of the many ways this menu blogging has helped me. :-)

Harry said...

Thank you, Jo! :)
