Sometimes I am not very smart.

I wanted to be asleep an hour ago.

Instead I am here and wide awake. @@ The reason I wanted to be asleep is because tomorrow will be a very busy day for me at work. With coworker being out attending her son that leaves me to work the busiest day of the month- alone. Woo hoo?  It is giving me 6 hours of overtime at least so I can feel like I am getting paid well for it at least.

The reason I wanted to blog is because I am being a good girl! :)

 My eating has been spot on the last three day actually. I even experimented for dinner tonight.  One day I was googling and ran into a way I hadn't seen* to make zucchini noodles. I stored that little tidbit away until I needed it. Tonight I called upon the information and was handsomely rewarded with a yummy dinner.

 Here is a picture of mine sauteing in the pan while I boiled hubby's noodles.

 * is the website I found it on and here is her gif of how she makes them

I bagged the centers of the two I did and plan on using them in another dinner. I just did it slow and carefully so that I didn't cut myself on the grater.  I highly recommend this way!  


  1. I haven't tried that method yet, but I will! I don't have a spiral slicer so I cut lengthwise in slices, then trim the slices into individual thinner strips. Takes awhile though, so this definitely looks better! Thanks for the tip!

  2. Genius! I never made them because I didn't have a spiraler!!!!!

  3. Neat! I'm totally going to try that!

  4. Funny you should show these - we tried them for the first time just recently in a Turkish yoghurt based soup (oh boy, you have to love garlic for this!) and it was fantastic. It's already become a firm favourite.

  5. I love zucchini noodles and broccoli slaw (sauteed makes it like noodles). Hope you can get some sleep and glad you are finding grain substitutes. :)
