I am writing this post tonight while watching the movie, Serendipity. I'm just a ridiculous romantic at heart and this movie is truly, insanely romantic.
According to Wikipedia the word Serendipity means the effect by which one accidentally discovers something fortunate, especially while looking for something else entirely unrelated.
If you haven't seen this movie, go and rent it tonight!
My husband's cousin is turning 40 and tonight we attended a Birthday BBQ. He has been dabbling in beer brewing and had several of his creations on tap. I didn't want to show up empty handed so I ran to the market to search for ingredients for an appetizer but as I perused the produce dept for herbs and veggies I was drawn to the fruits instead. Then I decided to completely change direction and make a fruit salad.
For the salad you will need:
1/2 a canteloupe
1 pint of strawberries
1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries
4 red apricots (These are fabulous!)
juice from 1 lemon
1 tbsp grated lemon zest
Cut all of the fruit into bite sized pieces and toss with lemon juice and zest.
For the dressing I used:
1 cup of plain Greek style yogurt
juice from 1/2 a lemon
1 1/2 tbsp honey
1 tsp grated lemon zest
This was an outstanding and unexpected treat. I can't wait to whip this one up again very soon!
