DAY 243 It's Time for a Friday Favorite

Good Afternoon,  Journal & Friends!

I'm in the mood for some fun! So I thought I'd share a Friday Favorite today.

I don't talk a lot about food here, recipes and such... I don't list what I eat, when I eat it, where I eat it, what I should've eaten, what I could've eaten, what I would've eaten... well, you get the picture. Just WRITING that sentence bored me, so I can't imagine blogging my menu!

More power to those of you who find it helpful. We are all unique, eh?  That's the fun thing about blogging... we can personalize it fit our own needs.

Me?? I have enough food cues in my life without looking at food porn online, LOL!!

See what I mean?? Those were cute, but made me want to eat them! LOL!

Oh... and I LOVED the little bear's head in the Bento box lunch! It was made by soaking a peeled hardboiled egg in soy sauce... cute, huh?

Anyway, having said all that... now I'm about to make myself a liar...ha ha ha... and post my own photos of food.

Actually, it's a favorite food gadget I bought off eBay, and am having fun with. Since I don't choose to eat sugar and flour, that left me wondering on what to put my favorite sauces?? 

Enter.... ZOODLES.

I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE these. They are simply the humble zucchini, shredded up like spaghetti!

You can cook them up a zillion ways. Or just simply fry up and sprinkle a little parmesan, garlic, and/or mozzarelly on top... yummers!

Here is my gadget, called a Turning Slicer, with Zoodles:

Lisa, at 24/7 Low Carb Diner, had an even easier way to do it, with a little handheld tool (HERE).  Oh well, I didn't read that until after I already had my toy. :-) By the way, if you're looking for wonderful hubby-tested recipes that do NOT use sugar, she's your gal.

From Dr Phil's book: "With programming, you design your life so that it pulls for you when you're not pumped up, when you don't feel like behaving maturely, when you don't want to tell yourself "no."

My verse for today: "A merry heart does good like a medicine."

My quote for today: "The trouble is, you cannot grow just one zucchini. Minutes after you plant a single seed, hundreds of zucchini will barge out of the ground and sprawl around the garden, menacing the other vegetables.  At night, you will be able to hear the ground quake as more and more zucchinis erupt." --Dave Barry

Hmmm. I like zucchini bread. (Of course, I do--it's got flour and sugar and butter in it.) And I like deep-fried zucchini. (Of course, I do--it's got breading and tons of oil in it.) But wouldn't zucchini noodles get mushy? Deb

Love the Bento lunch box. So cute. The Japanese have style for sure.

I have one of those zucchini things too and love it. Except, I forgot I own it! :) Bought it about six months ago after reading about it on the sweet young lady going to cooking school in Switzerland. She suggested using one. I loved the thing.

Now I'm going to pull it out this weekend and make some zoodles. Thanks for the reminder!

I want a shredder like that. I once saw a recipe that called for shredded zucchini and wanted to try it out but didn't have anything to shred it with.
I love those pics.. :)
