Woohoo it’s almost Friday!! Somehow Thursdays always end up being our craziest days. It’s a constant race to make it to ballet on time after school, and then Jack had another makeup soccer game at 7. Jack was SO CLOSE to scoring an awesome goal but the goalie baaaaarely batted it out at the last second. Heartbreaker. We grabbed dinner after the game and ended up getting home after 9, so I’m sure we’ll have some exhausted kiddos in the morning.
Speaking of dinner, I’m really digging Verts lately. My favorite is the bowl with baby kale, turkey-mushroom meatballs, pickled onions, veggies, chickpeas, feta, hummus and tzatziki. I tried the eggplant dip tonight and it was pretty fab too, so I’ll be adding that one to the mix. And if you download their app your first meal is free!!
We eat a lot of veggie noodles around here, but I feel like they’re always kind of womp-womp. Zucchini noodles are a pain to make and get soggy fast, spaghetti squash tends to be watery, etc. But this week we tried these new carrot noodles from Trader Joe’s and I am a FAN.
They’re $2.99 (I think) and can be found in the freezer case. You just throw them in a skillet with some olive oil for a few minutes and they’re good to go. They stay firm, giving them more of a pasta-like texture, don’t release a ton of water and have a mild but slightly sweet flavor. I had some turkey meat sauce in the fridge so we had that over the carrot noodles for a super quick, post-soccer practice dinner on Monday.
Brian and I both loved the noodles. I want to try them with some type of a creamy sauce next time- I think I have a cauliflower alfredo bookmarked somewhere that would be perfect.
Another busy day tomorrow! It’s May Crowning at school and then soccer practice for Isla. We also have three games this weekend!! Good thing it’s supposed to be gorgeous out.
Hope everyone has a fun weekend!
