Have you ever been up so early with nowhere to go?
Yea thats me today. I woke up at my usual time, and tried as I might I just couldn’t fall back asleep. So what did I do? I went and cleaned my kitchen… how lame am I? I’m feeling quite productive though I’m getting a lot of stuff done that I didn’t have time to do before.
I’m glad you all enjoyed my christmas survey! You’ve all still got a couple days left if you want to fill it out!
This apple was so crisp and juicy that it was just begging to be photographed (note my red nail polish, festive no? :)).
One of the excellent things about break is that now I have some free time – actually a lot of free time! Of course you know ive been in the kitchen tackling the stock pile of recipes that I have had saved up. Pictures all to come, but I wanted to share one that I created with you.
Zucchini Noodles & Glazed Vegetable Coulis
1 zucchini squash
1 cup cherry tomatoes
Pinch basil & oregano (or any spices for seasoning)
Salt & pepper
Wash the zucchini squash and then using your spiralizer (or if you don’t have one, your mandolin, or a sharp knife) and cut the zucchini into thin noodle like ribbons. Place in a bowl and set aside. Cut up your carrots and cucumber in whatever shapes you like, set aside. In your blender place the avocado, cherry tomatoes, basil, oregano, salt, pepper and oil and blend for about 30 seconds or until a smooth texture. In a bowl mix carrots and cucumbers with your tomato-avocado coulis and let marinate for 5 minutes.
Viola your done! Place your zucchini noodles on a bowl or plate, and top with your marinated vegetable coulis. Garnish with more herbs or green pepper.
I’ve also been eating bowl after bowl of Annie’s Naturals goddess dressing. My new favorite combo? Dressing + Bananas = Love. Sounds gross but is amazing, give it a shot if your feeling adventurous 😉
I also found out that I am the lucky winner of a giveaway over at Raw Epicurean for 4 beautiful microplane kitchen tools. I’m so excited to receive these!
This afternoon im going to the Flaming Ice Cube for lunch with one of my good friends, I cant wait! Re-cap tomorrow! Plus christmas might have come early in the Muffin household. Woo woo!
