Nickets' FruitFetti Fusion Lunch!

So, my husband Nicholas (I get to call him Nicky or Nickets) rocks. He's super 'mazing. And I love him and how he pampers me.

This morning he was watching cooking shows on cable and got all fired up with excitement and creativity (he's the food, beverage and Village Cafe manager at Best Friends Animal Society, which if I do say so myself is the perfect job to showcase his many talents)!

He made a whole new lunch for us, (very) loosely inspired by the exotic fruits and flavors the TV chefs were using. Well, to be exact, he made this for ME since he had his wisdom teeth out on Wednesday (those who follow me on my personal facebook page will see that I FAINTED instead of taking care of him, so pathetic, lol)!

I asked him to write down what it all was so I could share. Here's what it is:

Multi-Grain Medley Rice Garnished With Sliced Fresh Avocado

Steamed Minced Garlic Green And Yellow String Beans

Summer Fruit And Vegetable Salad On A Bed Of Organic Romaine Hearts; Made With Fresh Apricots, Diced Fuji Apples, Sliced Anaheim Green Peppers, Cherry Tomatoes, Raw White Onion Rings, Cubed "Follow Your Heart" Vegan Mozzarella Cheese, Chopped Vegan "Gardein" Brand Chipotle Citrus Chicken, Melded With A Dash Of Lime Juice And Thick Mango Nectar Tossed With Fresh Mint And Cilantro. Garnished With Whole Bing Cherries

And here's what it looks like:

Plus ..... Ginger Lime Slush!!!

Is your jaw on the floor at all those yummy, fresh and flavorful ingredients?! I was in picnicking heaven!

But wait, there's more:

Strawberry Lemonade Layer Cake for dessert!!!! Holy Goo, Batman (and that's a good thing)!

Nickets, I love you! Thank you!

I hate to brag, but the few bites I had before my mouth freaked out was A-MAZ-ING! And how refreshing was that slushie?! Who would have thunk that it is so good and has so few ingredients in it? Fresh lime squeezed into blended ginger ale and ice, with some minced ginger added, and a tiny bit of mint and imitation honey... a-whaaaa...???
