The weekend is over and you know what? I don't hate it. It was a good weekend and filled with fun things but the fact that the weather is improving also improves my mood and therefore today I do not hate Monday even though the fun of a couple days off is over until Friday again.
The highlight of my weekend was hanging out with some of my MN Blogger Friends at our 2nd annual favorite things party but I will have to post about that tomorrow because I did not take a single picture. So once all my friends have their posts up I can share about the fun and
steal borrow their pictures :)
So since my weekend fun will have to wait I'll share a fun recipe that I tried out a couple weeks ago, Broccoli Slaw Spaghetti. I saw the recipe first on Erin's blog and thought it was a little crazy but why not try it out. And I am so glad that I did.
I will say that it took a little getting used to knowing that I was eating broccoli and not noodles but it is definitely something that I will make again. The fact that I ate spaghetti and didn't even have to worry about all the carbs was pretty exciting.
1 bag of broccoli slaw
Jar of tomato sauce
Half of an onion (optional)
Ground meat of your choosing (optional), I used ground chicken
Seasoning, I used garlic and Italian seasoning
Then you just boil broccoli slaw in water for about 5 minutes to soften it up, brown your meat and heat up your sauce like usual and then pour your broccoli slaw into your meat and sauce mixture and as easy as that you have yourself a delicious and healthy meal. Good way to trick yourself (and kids) into eating some extra veggies :)
Let me know what you think if you try it out!
