Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone had a great weekend. I did, but it just wasn't long enough. Of course it never is. First up on my food list is Happy Herbivore's Neapolitan Smoothie. The Neapolitan ice cream used to be one of my favorites when I was growing up, so I was really anxious to try Lindsay's smoothie. It was amazing. It taste like the original stuff. Makes for a great frozen dessert.. It's really good for breakfast also. :o) This recipe can be found on her website here.
Sunday night I made HH's Quiche with Greens. I used spinach in mine and I also added some red bell pepper. Another very yummy dish! If you like quiche, this was very good and very easy. I'm all about easy meals. This recipe is also on HH's website and it can be found here. Yes, I am on the HH kick. Everything that I have made from her cookbook has been fantastic and so easy to make. Sorry my food pictures are so dark. We are minus a light bulb or two in our lighting fixture in the kitchen. I keep forgetting to stop and pick light bulbs up.
This is the red pepper that I used in the quiche. It came out of our garden. :o)
Okay, here's something that I made last night that did not come from the HH cookbook. Are you amazed? These are Double Chocolate Brownie Dough Balls and they are delicious. I got the recipe from Oh She Glows, which can be found here. Tony was even amazed at how good they were. These are going to be perfect for that mid afternoon chocolate craving that I get sometimes.
Next up today are some random pictures that I took Saturday on our bike trip to Patti's. This place is known for it's 2 inch pork chop, so you know that I didn't have very much to choose from. Not a vegan friendly place, but they were very willing to help me out. They had a chicken portobello sandwich on their menu, so I asked if I could order that with out the chicken. I figured the lady would think I was crazy, but she said sure and that she has had other people to order like that before because they didn't eat meat....like me...ha It was very good, but they could have put a little more mushroom on there for me, but I didn't complain. I had that and some of their homemade chips...delish! I took a picture of it with my phone, but it was so dark that you couldn't tell what it was....sorry.
Since I love dogs, I just had to take a picture of this sign.
This was the side of one of the gift shops. I thought all the bird houses were so cool.
Here's a close up of one of the bird houses.
I felt so sorry for this Turkey. I so wanted to set him free. Obviously he has been very stressed, because he has pulled out all the feathers on his chest. He looked at us and made some little noises as if he were saying please help me. Just broke my heart!
He/She was napping when we first came upon him. He was standing on one leg with his head buried into his back...so pretty. We woke him up by mistake though...oops
A cute little wedding chapel. Someone was getting married there last year when we went, so we weren't able to go inside.
It was open this time though. :o) It might hold like 20 people, and that would be very crowded!
Two angels were right outside the wedding chapel. A friend of mine took this picture, so I stole it from her off of her facebook page...ha I thought it was so cool.
This was the sail boat harbor right across the street...so pretty! Have you ever been sail boating? I haven't and would love to go.!
We had to make a pit stop on our way to Patti's to put on our rain gear. It came a down pour on us. We rode in the rain for about an hour I guess....it was still fun though.
Yep...ridding with out a helmet. There's not a helmet law in KY. I think we were the only rebels. Everyone else kept their helmets on....probably the smartest thing to do.
