Is Spring here yet? And recent eats.

Hello again!

Is anyone else totally ready for Spring? I feel like the warm weather is trying to make it’s way here for good, and I’m loving it! I went for a walk with a friend today, and it was absolutely beautiful-60 degrees and sunny!

Now let’s get to the eats!

Sunday: Zoodles with ground turkey spaghetti sauce

I used this recipe from Little Spice Jar for the spaghetti sauce but added ground turkey for some added protein. I used the crockpot like the recipe called for, but you could make it over the stove too. However, I do think cooking it long and slow is the way to go to get the most out of the flavor. I also cooked up some zucchini noodles, and topped it all with parmesan cheese. Delicious!

Weekly Eats Week 8

Monday: Leftover Zoodles

Leftovers from Sunday since I was headed to my sister’s for our weekly girl’s night (and sometimes her husband who pretends like he is not watching The Bachelor but really is.) I really do enjoy cooking, but it’s so nice to have leftovers for days like this.

Tuesday: Spicy Tuna Cakes from Nom Nom Paleo

I feel like term “tuna cake” always sounds unappetizing, but I promise they taste good (if you like tuna!). I typically make up my own recipe and throw a bunch of things together and David always loves them, however I was ready to try a new recipe. I found one by Nom Nom Paleo that included sweet potatoes, and I am alway sold on anything that includes sweet potatoes. I loved these wayyyy more than the ones that I typically throw together, but David was not a fan. I feel like he is going through a phase where he loves sweet potatoes, but not when combined with other foods. (Example #1. The sweet potato quiche last week. He thought it was good, but said the sweet potatoes should be separate from the eggs. Example #2: Sweet potato tuna melts from the other week. He liked them…but ate the tuna separate from the sweet potato base. I hope this phase ends soon because I love sweet potatoes combined with everything!)

Doesn’t photograph very well!

Wednesday: Indian Spiced Turkey Burgers from Practical Paleo by Diane Sanfilippo, Roasted Curried Cauliflower from Eating Bird Food and a baked potato

I made these turkey burgers several years ago, and was reminded of them when I was flipping through my cookbook last week. They are super simple, and have a really good flavor. To go along with the Indian theme, I roasted up some cauliflower in some indian spices. We both liked the turkey burgers (David said he would still prefer a beef burger…shocker. 😉 ), and we both LOVED the cauliflower. It was a good change from my normal coconut oil and sea salt. This meal did not photograph well, so no photo to show. Sorry!

Thursday: Spiralized sweet potato eggs in a hole

I saw a photo of this the other day, but with no recipe, so I decided to try it out on my own. We spiralized a couple small sweet potatoes, and then I cooked themin a little coconut oil and salt until they started to get soft. I then used a spoon to make three holes in the spiralized potatoes, and cracked an egg into each one and added salt and pepper. I put a lid on the pan and let the eggs cook. I really enjoyed this meal, and so did David…but he still ate the eggs and sweet potatoes separate. Ha!

Friday: Squeaky Clean Chicken and Veggie Bake from Fed and Fit

This was so easy and so good! You literally just throw everything into a baking dish and then stick it in the oven. It is also customizable to whatever veggies you have on hand. I used cauliflower, broccoli, green beans, a few random brussel sprouts we still had and then a handful of cherry tomatoes. This recipe is a keeper. Yum!

Saturday: Leftover Tikka Masala

Leftover Tikka Masala had been in the freezer from the other week, so I pulled it out for an easy Saturday night dinner. We paired this with a redbox movie, and had a relaxful night in.

I hope y’all have a wonderful week and eat some delicious food!

    1. I know! I never use to use the spiralizer, but now I’m using it all the time!It’s been fun experimenting with new veggie noddle recipes! Let me know if you have any good recipes!

      1. I don’t! BUT a coworker once brought in regular potato and sweet potato “pasta” mixed together with just EVO and Italian spices and it was SO yummy.
