I haven’t been more excited for a Monday since, like, ever. Before you think I’m completely crazy, it’s for one reason and one reason only: air conditioning. When I think about all my first-time homebuyer mistakes, buying a house with a nearly 30-year old AC is probably near the top. (And that the roof is also that old, but knock on wood, it’s still okay.) So our air conditioner went kaput two weeks ago and they are finally fixing it tomorrow. I mean, it could have been worse. We were on vacation for the entire week. But still. I live in Georgia. With a baby. And a hairy dog.
So I had to go back to work and catch up on 500 emails because I had all last week off and then I went to the gym at lunch but realized that I forgot pants in my workout bag so I left. And I might have eaten way too many mini hershey bars. But when I got home, there was cool air. Sweet cool air. Air that didn’t get thick and wet when I cooked.
So a few weeks ago, I bought this el cheapo spiralizer. It works but you get a lot of the vegetable that’s un-spiralizable. This was not that part.
I turned this zucchini into Vegetarian Noodle Pad Thai. Not the prettiest dish, but really, really good. I omitted the peanuts and added some Gardein fake chicken instead. A better use of calories, if you ask me.
And now, if you excuse me, I’m going to lay under the covers and not sweat to death.
