Hi friends, ready or not it’s Monday again! I’m so thankful for Menu Plan Monday to keep me on track and accountable for getting my menu plan done. Although if I didn’t do one I wouldn’t have any idea what to buy for groceries when I go on Monday mornings now would I? Just another reason why it’s a good idea to have a set grocery day :)
So I tried out my Paderno Spiralizer last week. I made zucchini noodles and they turned out awesome! I’m going to make them again this week.
Then I used it with sweet potatoes (or are they yams?) and then deep fried them to a crispy deliciousness. So fun!
This spiralizer was super easy to use and clean. I’m very happy with it!
So I mentioned last week or the week before how I got up the nerve to try Brussels Sprouts. This week I got up the nerve to try another new food. Beets! I was really scared and didn’t have a clue what to do with them. Then I found these already cooked ones at Costco so I thought that might be a good place to start.
I just heated one up in the microwave to eat but I’ve got to admit it wasn’t delicious. It was okay but I really need to figure out new ways to use them. I’ve got a recipe on the menu this week that uses beets to make a mock BBQ sauce so I’m looking forward to that. Do you love beets? How do you eat them?
So I hope you all have an organized week with easy and delicious meals. Take some time to plan your menu for the week and your life will be forever changed :)
