Happy almost Friday, guys!
I’ve got the urge to get out of town this weekend but I have too many dogs and too many kids to just pick up and leave. So I’m probably going to settle for lying in a beach chair in my backyard and watching all of season 5 of New Girl.
Aaaaaand I bought a new grill this week so I’ll probably grill every meal. I’m pretty excited about that.
Just kidding. ha! We all know that never works out well.
But I am trying to make healthier choices these days. Because, bikini season.
Although I had a Big Mac on Sunday so…
I’m back to my breakfast salads and sweet potato noodles and lots and lots of turkey bacon. And I’m even giving zucchini noodles another try.
I have never liked them (I don’t really love zucchini to begin with) but I’ve found that if I put a spicy sauce on them, I love them. And they have basically no calories so, I’ll definitely take that.
This Dan Dan Zucchini Noodles recipe is like the classic Sichuan noodles that I order every Friday night, except with zucchini instead of regular noodles. So it’s pork, ginger, garlic, and zucchini noodles all tossed with a spicy tahini (sesame paste) sauce. And then it’s served with chopped roasted peanuts on top for the perfect crunch.
I’m obsessed. I had it 4 times last week.
It takes no time at all to prepare, literally 15 minutes or so. You don’t want to overcook the zucchini or it gets mushy and gross so seriously, just toss it all together and cook for 1 minute.
(This is the spiralizer I use. I’ve had it for well over a year and use it almost daily. LOVE IT.)
