Curly Zucchini Straws

Curly Zucchini Straws

It has been 19 days since my last post... and this is why...

Yes, I am one week away from my due date and extremely tired. Lately I have just enough strength to get out of bed, take a shower and then take a nap. Plus, I have been having a ton of Braxton Hicks which gives me false hope my boy is coming early but I think he's pretty happy where he is for now. So.. I will continue to wait until my boy is ready to join the world. Sigh.

At least I have the best napping partner ever...

To help pass the time I would get back to what I love, cooking. These  two dishes are simple, healthy side dishes or snacks. They are easy and fast to make... which is great for me since I don't have the time or energy to cook a lavish meal. Thankfully these two dishes are full of flavor without all the time and fuss.
