It's Smooth Sailing Making a Pineapple Smoothie




Sipping a Pineapple Smoothie for breakfast…one of my favorite things!

If you like fresh pineapple, yogurt, pineapple juice and honey, you’ll love this recipe.




It’s easy to prepare and delicious!

Here’s a recipe to use as a guide.
Change ingredient amounts to suit your taste.

½ cup greek yogurt
1 slice pineapple (about 1 inch thick)
1 Tablespoon honey
¼ cup pineapple juice
5-10 ice cubes

Put all items in a blender until smooth.
Pour in a glass. Enjoy!

Sail along with a Smoothie…

I absolutely love boats…marinas…the ocean…




Lot of fishing going on here…


Stopped by the Brielle Yacht Club Marina and took some photos of boats. Met some nice folks as I snapped away…

Here is Joe. He was getting ready to go fishing with his buddy Ed. Very nice guy.



This is Ed...very friendly and pleasant.

His friend is also on the boat (don't know his name).




Ed & Joe's boat~





Boat owners like to


christen their boats with a name.

Here are some very creative names!

My parents wedding anniversary dinner was held here a few years ago. The food was absolutely FABULOUS!
Memorable was the Cheesecake drizzled with Cilantro Oil. At first, I was hesitant to try it. But, then gave it a chance. OMG! Wonderful! However, I don’t see it on their menu now.

A shout out to Shipwreck Grill for such great food and service!

Carmen, I meant to tell you that I'll miss you at sms, but I look forward to hearing all about your adventures in cooking school. I JUST bought a pineapple (like 5 minutes ago) AND I have Fage needing to be used up, so this recipe is perfect for today.

And I'll have to run down to the Shipwreck Grill, on your recommendation!
