We had a beautiful day, followed by a beautiful sunset!

Dinner tonight was beer can chicken again.  I didn’t overcook it and have lots of leftovers to make something – not sure what yet!

I made skin on mashed potatoes and cheesy broccoli.  While the potatoes were boiling, I used the steam to steam my broccoli:


I have no ideas how many calories specifically my dinner was, but considering we blended breakfast and lunch, I am not too concerned about it!

But I did make the dessert I mentioned before on Healthy Appetites on FoodNetwork.

Balsamic Strawberries with Ricotta Cream

  • 1 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (I used my Mexican vanilla – so good!)
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 16 ounces strawberries, hulled and quartered

Put the ricotta cheese, honey and vanilla extract into the small bowl of a food processor and process until smooth, 1 minute.  Transfer to a small bowl and refrierate for at least 2 hours.

In a small saucepan combine the vinegar and sugar and bring to a boil.  Simmer over medium heat for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Allow to cool completely.

In a medium bowl, toss the berries with the balsamic syrup.  Divide the cream among 4 cocktail glasses, top with berry mixture and serve.

Per serving: 1/3 cup cream and 1/2 cup berries)

Here is Hannah enjoying it!

Planning on meeting my mom for lunch and a movie tomorrow.  Okay, we are going to see the new Nicolas Sparks movie, Road to Rodanthe.  It only got 1 1/2 stars.  Does that deter you from seeing a movie??

See you at breakfast!
