It’s been a while since I have posted about my own kitchen adventures! Let’s fix that 😀
Remember when I snagged an ice cream maker at Joey and Nicole’s party?
As soon as I got home from the party, I broke out the instructions and set to work:
Behold the magic globe.
I filled one end with ice and salt and filled the other with my own special blend for pumpkin pie ice cream:
The instructions told me to shake the ball for 20 minutes, but I got bored and had places to be, so I just threw it into the freezer …
… for four days:
While I let my solid block of pumpkin ice cream thaw a bit, I set to work on my other new toy, a gift from step-grandmama:
That’s right, a veggie spiralizer!
I really didn’t know what I was missing all those times I used a carrot peeler to shred things for hours on end.
In went a zucchini …
And out came zucchini spaghetti!
It’s a miracle!
While I was spiralizing zucchini, carrots, yellow squash, and broccoli stalks, I had tofu baking in the oven and slathered with this gift from mom:
I tossed all the “noodles” together in a bowl …
… and then added my crispy tofu, steamed broccoli, and tons of spices and herbs:
Voila, veggie spaghetti!
For dessert, I shoveled out some pumpkin ice cream, made it creamy with the immersion blender, and served it on top of a hot vitabrownie:
That was a fun meal. I’ve missed playing in the kitchen!
