So is it weird that I want to get married again?
Not to someone else. Sheesh! To the same wonderful man that stole my heart 10 years ago!
But ever since I’ve started second shooting weddings (and binge watching “Say Yes to the Dress”) I’m convinced I could plan a phenomenal wedding the second go around. (not that the first one was bad either, it was great)
But, I mean really. There are so many cool things nowadays that we just didn’t have 9 years ago.
Basically your wedding is planned out to the tee and the cutest thing ever with Pinterest.
Not creative.. no problem. Go to pinterest!
And dresses? Pfff… don’t get me started!
I am more of a simpleton anyways so I had a smooth satin halter top dress with a band of glitz, but now dresses are gorgeous and the so perfectly form fitted to bring out a girls curves!
Ugh… so basically I just want to get married … again! Re-do please!?
Maybe for a 15 year anniversary? (hint hint if your reading this husband… hehe)
Ok, ok. Enough.
So … this Thai Chicken Zucchini Noodles with Spicy Peanut Sauce.
First off, if peanut butter is in it then you know its a winner!
But the fact that this recipe is packed full of vegetables? Well that’s a sneaky little trick and just plain awesome.
I was trying to think of a new inspiralizer recipe for ya’ll because well, they are just fun to make AND its a easy healthy substitute. My mind was going and it landed on this one Thai Chicken Dish I made and I thought, why not make it with zucchini noodles …
So I did!
And ya’ll, let me tell you. This turned out way better than I though it would. When Mike came home I couldn’t wait for him to try it and see what he thought. He took the first bite and was the first words were “What is this babe? Its really good!” And then he finished off the bowl! Mission Accomplished!
Oh, did I mention that is takes 15 minutes to make and its only 363 calories! Yup! Amazing! Not only will the flavors knock you off your seat but the ease of it will too. Your family will love it!
