Fylde Coast Musings vs Cyprus Life – in pictures

Originally from a small mill town in Heywood, Lancashire (United Kingdom) we moved overseas at the beginning of March 2004 and spent the next glorious 12 years in Limassol, Cyprus. Sadly, in 2016 we had to return permanently to UK due to family ill health. We now live on the Fylde coast where the river Wyre meets the Irish sea just across from Fleetwood. More places to discover and capture on camera!

My very first fruit smoothie


Michele in the Kitchen” – make the most of it, it doesn’t happen often….

But today, as I had some bananas starting to go a bit soft and lots of strawberries, I did a Google search for “how to make a smoothie?”
Obviously it was very easy – because here is it is!

Banana and Strawberry smoothie

My very first home made fruit smoothie.

My very first fruit smoothie – not only the first I’ve ever tasted but also the first I’ve ever made too!

And, very nice it is….. I have enough for 2 big Bacardi glasses for me plus 2 small glasses. Even the dogs got a taste 🙂

I’ve already had one big glass while Clement, my other half had a small glass. Clem is the one who does spend time in the kitchen….

I’m saving a small glass for later and will have the other big glass for breakfast before I head off for work tomorrow.

Maybe I will have to start looking out for some smoothie recipes now? Clement just suggested trying to make my favourite Lemon Cheesecake recipe into a smoothie. Is that possible?

Woo Hoo! It looks like it is….. don’t you just love Google for finding information!

Check out these cheesecake smoothie recipes from “Yummly”

A sample of Clement’s home cooking here below: Calamari rings on a bed of basmati rice with a cherry tomato salad.
