Here are three things I’m obsessed about this week.
1 – Zucchini “pasta”
Years ago I tried a summer squash “spaghetti” for the first time and, uh, let’s just say I couldn’t go beyond the first bite. But then I saw this post by Justin Schwarts over at Justcook NYC featuring zucchini “pasta”. These pale green ribbons looked elegant and perfect., and the timing couldn’t have been more perfect! I’ve seriously been considering reducing the amount of carbohydrates that I eat and this post is a godsend since pasta and rice are my weaknesses. The cogs in the noggin have started churning. I can’t wait to experiment with this!
2 – Fudgesicles
Not sure how I stumbled upon this website, Foodie with Family, but so glad I did! She hooked me in with her post for Fudgesicle Frosty and Homemade Fudgesicles. No added sugar? No dairy? And her 5 boys loved them? Sign me up! They are so easy to make and MY kids love them. The ingredients? Unsweetened coconut milk, avocado, dates, and unsweetened cocoa powder. Intrigued? Go check out the site for the full recipe!
3 – School’s Out!
This means no more morning rush trying to get breakfast into the kids, lunches into their lunch boxes, and the 3 of us dressed, cleaned and out the door. The kids are going to take it easy this summer and I’m ready for the pace to slow down a bit.
