Vegetti Spiralizer

So next time, I’ll make the zucchini noodles with the rest of the eight zucchinis we got, and I’ll make a hot meat sauce. Then we can see how the noodles pair up with it, though, I’ll probably have to microwave the noodles after I make them. But I can say this, it is WAY easier to make than spaghetti squash noodles.


Wednesday Dinner: $5 Dinner Mom (Fish Tacos)

I actually would recommend this recipe on its own. I thought it was good. I didn’t eat a lot of fish growing up so eating fish is a little weird for me. But, with the addition of some tartar sauce that the recipe called for, the burrito was pretty good. And Maus told me a funny story over dinner.


Dinner Recipe Reviews – $5 Dinner Mom

The book includes quite a bit on how to eat healthy, and strategically shop and plan for dinner meals for maximum effectiveness. There are LOTS of recipes, which I always appreciate. This last week I made two dishes: Sloppy Joe Chicken and Slow-Cooker Spaghetti and Meatballs.


Friday Dinner – Chicken Alfredo

I thought that was pretty good for not making a really thick sauce before. It was really thick, the thickest I’ve ever made. Honestly, I felt like I could “anchor a boat with it” as Sophia would say in the Golden Girls.


Thursday Dinner – Tilapia

Normally a sauce for something like this, at least in my experience, has a bunch of ingredients like spices, and so on. However, in the frugal nature of this book the sauce is very easy. It’s just a mixture of honey, rice vinegar, and dijon mustard. Easy to whisk together, and because of the thickness of the honey, easy to apply.
