Happy Anniversary to Meeeee!.... and Harry....

Five years of wedded bliss can only be celebrated in one way. That's right - by spending too much time in a movie theater.  

Last Friday we saw "Get Smart" which was pretty cute and not too cliched or stupid.  After a refreshing meal of burgers and greasy fries we then decided to catch a second flick "Love Guru" which was a bit cliched and stupid.  Mike Myers may have hit his stride with Austin Powers but the Love Guru was just a bit, well, blah. Justin Timberlake, however, was awesome in it!   He actually sings Celine Dion with a fake Canadian French accent at one point.  

And then Harry looked at me with that twinkle in his eyes.  

And I ended up at the end of a row watching a third movie.  "The Incredible Hulk" was actually pretty good and Harry was salivating at the thought of getting the flick on a blu-ray disc.

Saturday morning dawned with our anniversary seeming very much like the d-day of 2003 with me in bed alone and groggy.  Harry had left me to go buy some overpriced boat-like shoes with little jumpy men on them and I decided to go with mom to the local Farmer's market that just started up down the street.  Only it wasn't there.  Hmm.

So we ended up at a produce stand and I bought some lovely non-tainted red, yellow and green tomatoes and some peaches.  The man who quickly put our produce in recycled plastic wal-mart bags told us of a lunch dish prepared by the Greenbrier here in WV.   After pan-frying not-too-thinly-sliced tomatoes in olive oil and slicing one of the large red tomatoes, I layered it on two pieces of white toast with a piece of American Cheese and some mayo on it. 

I expected it to me okay and it was WONDERFUL!!!!

And then we had a great meal at The Chop House.

Congratulations on 5 years of wedded bliss! It's mine and Doc's anniversary this Friday and it will be 5 for us as well. We're just NOT married (winks)'s just as loving and special to me as if we were. Sounds like you did indeed have a movie marathon. The tomatoe sandwich sounded great. I put tomatoes on my grilled cheese all the time. (Hugs)Indigo

Is that all that is on that sandwich is the tomato and mayo? I think I might have to try it.  Linda

It's our anniversary too but after 29 yeas the only thing left to celebrate is survival. ;O)
