There has been quite the trend going around the food world. I am sure many of you have heard the term Zoodles or of the new “spiralizer” gadget. It seems that people have discovered a healthier way to eat noodles- and I am on board. I was skeptical at first, but after trying them myself, I am officially a “Zoodle” fan. I, unfortunately, do not own a Spiralizer. BUT, I was able to create these delicious zucchini noodles on my mandolin. I just put in the wide julienne insert and adjusts the thickness to my liking- voila! I am excited to try some other vegetables!
I am so excited that Spring is here! I love this time of year because it is the beginning of vegetable surprises at the Farmer’s Markets and grocery stores. Where I live, it is officially asparagus season. The organic asparagus at the grocery stores around here are MASSIVE! I have never seen such huge asparagus. While I usually prefer skinny asparagus for roasting, these jumbo asparagus are perfect for a shaved asparagus salad! All you need is a potato peeler to create beautiful ribbons that will add great texture and flavor to any salad.
Spring in Colorado… the ultimate tease. We had been enjoying warm sunny weather here in Summit County, until Mother’s Day weekend when got about a foot and a half of that wet, branch breaking, flower killing snow. Luckily, I had not planted any of my plants outside yet! Within two days, all the snow has melted and spring is trying to peak its head in. These bi-polar tendencies of Mother Nature in Colorado have made me indecisive on the food I want to eat.
