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.
