I am that little girl, and I have a whole lotta curl. Are you curious as to why I have so much curl today? Well, it because…..
I GOT A SPIRALIZER FOR MY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
After seeing Spiralizer creations featured on Averie, Katie, and Gena’s blogs, I knew I just had to have one of my own. In fact, I have been lusting after a Spiralizer for months. After tonight’s “Me Meal”, I can definitively state, it was worth the wait.
If you are just tuning in to the “Me Meal” episodes, I will give you a quick recap. GF Guy is in tech for the new musical he is working on, Wonderland. This means he is at the theater until after midnight every night, leaving me a “Theater Widow”. I miss not seeing much of him. However, I am always one to accentuate the positive. I am looking at this as a chance to make all sorts of fun meals I have been wanting to create, but haven’t because I didn’t think he would like them. Hence, the “Me Meals” series was created. We are now in week 2.
Behold…. a Spiralizer creation! I was craving meat tonight, for some odd reason. This is a rare occurrence, so I knew my body must need it. Unfortunately, I did not have any meat in the house… or so I thought. I peered into the depths of my freezer (aka my best friend) a found a few frozen Turkey and Spinach Meatballs! SCORE! It was time to go Italian!
“Spaghetti” a la Zucchini
– 1 Zucchini Squash
– Marinara Sauce
– leftover Turkey and Spinach Meatballs (from the freezer)
– Garlic Powder
– Nutritional Yeast Flakes
I began by cutting the ends off an organic zucchini squash (bought at the Farmer’s Market yesterday). Then, I cut a shallow, slit lengthwise down the center of the zucchini, placed it on the Spiralizer, and set to cranking.
The remaining zucchini scraps looked a bit… awkward.
This meal was surprisingly filling, and not so surprisingly delicious. If you don’t have a Spiralizer, ask for one for Christmas! You definitely NEED one of these!
I also made a decadent, sinless dessert, but…..
You will have to tune in tomorrow for the details!!!!!!!!!
