Was it me, or did today feel like Wednesday? After work, I did the usual run around at home which involved laundry, a walk with Frank:
...dinner prep, and then out the door to teach Body Attack. Since Josh has a dinner meeting tonight, I just had to get my dinner prepared. I was contemplating all day what I wanted, but knew it needed to involve peppers since I have 5 sitting in the fridge. I decided to go with a slimmed down version of Rachel Ray's Hot and Cold Sesame Noodles:
1 large apple chopped
1/4 cup whole wheat pasta cooked
1 pepper chopped
1 serving broccoli/broccoli slaw
1 tablespoon naturally more peanut butter (or brand of choice)
1 tablespoon reduced sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon hot sauce
1 teaspoon rice vinegar
With a whisk, mix together peanut butter, soy sauce, hot sauce and rice vinegar. Toss cooked (but cooled) pasta, vegetables, and apple in sauce mixture. Enjoy or put in the refrigerator to enjoy later- this allows the vegetables to really absorb the sauce (I think it makes the dish extra tasty and is perfect for me on the nights I teach!).
Whats on your dinner menu tonight?
