Day #3

Well I must say I have had more fruit and vegetables in the past 3 days than I've had in the past 2 months, especially at breakfast and lunch! I pretty much always cooked green beans or some veggie for dinner or had a salad, but they have escaped my plate the rest of the day :-)  Of course preparing breakfast at 9:30 or 10 a.m. is a lot easier for me than at 7 a.m.!

I started off the day with a variation of the Smoothie I listed yesterday. Kids will even like these - they taste great!  Be creative and use fruits that you have or look up some recipes and try them. You can find the benefits of each fruit/vegetable and gear it to your needs. If you are low on energy, try an energizing smoothie!

I used: 
3 large fresh kale leaves
a handful of organic baby romaine
1/2 c. fresh raspberries
1 c. watermelon
1/2 banana ( I ate the other 1/2)
a few large spoonfuls of Greek Yogurt
Although the recipe said you didn't need to add water with watermelon I added 4 ice cubes to make it a little thicker. 

I also had 2 slices of 'When Pigs Fly' New York Rye bread toasted with butter and Raspberry jam.  I canNOT eat dry toast so I'll either eat if the way i like it or not at all. 

I'm cooking up some hardboiled eggs.  I only use cage-free.  I truly believe that the energy of the food is transferred to us and if I eat chicken or eggs from caged chickens I swear that I get agitated and that it's transferred from the horrible life they have.  Same with cattle that are slaughtered in an inhumane way.

Anyway the way to cook perfect hardboiled eggs is:

Put the eggs in a pot large enough to hold them and cover with water. Make sure the pot is large enough to have an inch or two above the water.  Cover and bring to a boil. When they come to a boil, remove the pot from the heat and let sit for 15 minutes.  Drain the water and keep rinsing with cold water to stop the edges from cooking any further. I just put the pan in the sink and let the water run. Once the eggs are cool, store them in the refrigerator and run under cold water to peel when you want to eat them.  Notice the color of the yolk compared to chicken that are caged and don't get sunshine.  Delicious - I just HAD to have one.  Now you have eggs ready for breakfast, a snack, or to slice and put in a salad!

Salad Nicoise for lunch: Organic baby romaine, Roma Tomatoes,  green beans, fresh mozzarella, Kalamata olives, tuna, artichoke hearts and roasted red pepper. . .  with a side of Celtic water.

I cooked up some  Garlic & Cheese sausages and some hot Italian sausages on the grill tonight. Then I sautéed some frozen green, yellow, red peppers and white onions for the sausages.  A little corn on the cob and voila - an easy dinner with lots of leftovers since I was the only one who was hungry!

Sneak Peek for Kristin & Stephen “Tie the Knot❣️“

 Each wedding is unique. Even though we basically start with close to the same photo list there are always individual requests that are special to each couple. I try to bring out the essence & individuality of each couple for their special day❣️ Here is the Sneak Peek for Kristin & Stephen's beautiful wedding day! They'd never been to York so when I said we needed photos at Nubble, Kristin said, "If we have time!"  Ummmmm, NO! We need to make time . . . and we're glad we did!    My 3rd wedding in 3 months and final one of 2022 for me!  Two hearts, one from New Hampshire and one from Newfoundland, were united in a small, intimate ceremony surrounded by close family members & lots of love at York Harbor Inn in York, Maine when Kristin and Stephen literally “tied the fisherman’s double knot❣️” on July 6, 2022. Read the story of tying the Fisherman's Knot. Second wedding I’ve done w
On April 19, 2022 a t 2:35 pm, the exact time of my birth 68 years later, I was at my very favorite place, Pemaquid Lighthouse! It worked out perfectly; I had planned on photographing sunrise, but it was raining so I went later in the day.  THIS is 68! I left on my solo secret birthday road trip on Monday April 18th. I made a pit stop at the Yarmouth Information Center to pick up some brochures. A guy in the parking lot saw my CELTS-6 license plate and Celtics hat and started talking about how great Sunday’s game was! :-) Once a year, I always like to go somewhere I haven’t been before. I took a side trip to Land’s End on Bailey Island. Just sorry I never made it there before my friend, Dan Millar, passed away. I want to go back for photos of The Giant Stairs, Lookout Point, Cribstone Bridge and the little lobster shack in Mackerel Cove when it’s a little warmer.  When I lived in Maine I would go to Tortola in April. Now I go from NH to Maine!  LoL     I arrived at Sheepscot Harbour Vi

And just like that . . . 2022 is a Wrap!

It's been a busy 2022 for me & Bev Tabet Photography ! January was spent watching the Celtics, photographing my food 😂and frozen bubbles and attending the NHSPA Photography Show at the Exeter Town Hall Gallery. February was low key with more Celtics games, day knitting and Alpha Xi Sista ZOOMs. I did manage to get out of Dodge in March with a few days in Hull with my Alpha Xi roomie as we took the spectator boat for the Hull Snow Row. Got some great photos including some of rowers from the New Bedford Area. That was followed by a 5-day visit to Ocean Point, Maine with Joan Libby. Both are always a fun time!  I took a little solo 68th birthday trip in April to Sheepscot Harbour Village in Edgecomb, Maine and got to go to my favorite Pemaquid Lighthouse and also Rockland Breakwater Lighthouse for some stormy images. I also got a taste of Spring at the Cider Hill Farm Tulip Fest in Amesbury, MA.   In May I returned to Cider Hill Farm for pick-your-own tulips, photographed a l
