There have been a few times in my life where I felt that I knew where I was going, thought that I was on a pretty clear path to my future. But life has a funny way of changing when you least expect it. A few of those forks in the road have put me in some… odd situations to say the least that I once thought; me… NEVER
Like dating for example, I completely forgot how much work it was… First you have to meet someone, and this step can take decades. Seriously normal decent guys are like unicorns, you want them to exist but nope just lots of donkeys.
And what got me thinking about this is why can’t we just be who we are? I don’t want to pretend that I’m something I’m not. Take a zucchini for example, it’s quite the versatile vegetable don’t you think? And that’s why I like it, because when I make zucchini pasta I know those zucchini noodles aren’t pasta, they’re zucchini and i’m ok with that, because if I wanted pasta I’d have pasta.
2 small zucchinis
2 handfuls of spinach
2 -3 garlic cloves
1/2 pound ground turkey
1/2 a red onion chopped
1-2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp chilli flakes
2 tsp oregano
salt and pepper to taste
1 jar of organic tomato sauce (I like the whole foods 369 brand)
In a pan on medium high heat cook your turkey, garlic and oregano until the turkey is fully cooked through then set aside in a bowl.
Turn down the heat on your pan slightly and add in a splash of olive oil. Throw in your mushrooms and oregano, once they’ve been going for about 10 minutes toss in the rest of your veg and turn down your heat to medium low. The zucchini noodles don’t take long and personally I like them slightly on the al dente side. Because really if you cook your vegetables until they’re mushy you shouldn’t even be allowed in a kitchen.
After about 4-5 minutes and your zucchini is looking a little bit more noodle like toss in your tomato sauce and cooked turkey and just heat until sauce is warmed.
If only dating was this easy… and delicious
