More Peanut Sauce?

Wahooo already through Tuesday work! Did you have a good one? Work was a little slowwwwww today, so I was thrilled when I finally got to escape! I came home to hammer out some house work (laundry/little cleaning) and to pre-make din din. I can't seem to get enough peanut sauce these days! For Josh, I made my version of Rachel Ray's Hot and Cold Sesame Noodles with chicken:



And I made myself vegetables with peanut sauce with just a few noodles and I threw in some walnuts for extra crunch! I plan to also have a big ole bowl of fruit :)

Alright, time to head out to teach some Body Attack! Whats on your dinner menu?

And a big CONGRATS to Tina on her pug!!!


Oh! And just a note on yesterdays shrimp recipe. I added a little extra heat and used a finer corn meal this time and I think that is what made the shrimp extra tasty!

that looks really really good! dinner tonight is Giada De Laurentiis' Roasted Chicken with Balsamic Vinaigrette (http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/giada-de-laurentiis/roasted-chicken-with-balsamic-vinaigrette-recipe/index.html)
i am excited to try this one out- it got 5/5 stars so i guess it has to be good, right? and yes- i am so glad that i now have both overnight oats and breakfast cookies to "fall back on" when I need breakfast to be ready for me as soon as i get into the kitchen! so good!

You and I are so similar with our cooking. I always make adapations to my plate and hubby's plate. More meat and carbs for him, more veggies for me.

Glad your long day is coming to an end and hope you have a wonderful day tomorrow love.

Yummy noodles! I'm visiting my sis in NC, and she's taking me out to someplace called the Remedy Diner tonight. Apparently they have lots of vegan options! I'm excited!

Alison said...

I love peanut sauce on pasta! My dinner menus the past few weeks have been increasingly simple. I still want to make homecooked meals, but don't have the energy to try too hard.
