Roommate Dinner :: Zoodles!!

Hello everyone!

We are starting a new tradition at our apartment.  
We're going to have weekly roomy dinners where we cook together, eat and chat for like 2 hours, and then clean up.  this time, I washed the dishes, Jenny dried them, and Shawn put them away.  It was pretty cute haha

On the menu this week was Zoodles with some grilled chicken and this amazing sauce Shawn whipped up!

Shawn actually just started her blog too, and look how cute she is taking pictures of the zucchini  ;) I'm so glad I have someone else here who blogs and understands my inability to stop taking photos of every little thing  =D   so hop on over there after you're done here to go check her out at her little corner of the interweb  =)

The reason we chose the menu we did was because of this lil guy.  The Spiralizer!!  we had been seeing so many recipes calling for these zucchini noodles, aka 'Zoodles' recently, so we had to try it out for ourselves.

it was quite simple to make it, really.  You cut the ends off, put it in the spiralizer, and spin!

and tada! your zucchini turns into these lovely Zoodles!!!

It was strangely satisfying to make it, it took literally a minute. and we had so much fun taking 'turns,' (ah ha) we're not gonna lie, it kinda felt like Christmas morning after you receive a new toy  haha

perhaps waay too excited about our Zoodles...?   naww!  no such thing!  ;)

We kept the Zoodles raw this time, though we're thinking about maybe cooking them next time.  I actually really liked them raw, so I'm excited to see how they turn out when they're cooked.
We plated the Zoodles, put some amazing sauce on top with a side of grilled chicken, and we were set for the best dinner of the week!  we ate, and chatted, and laughed so hard that a tear may or may not have escaped our eyes...  haha aren't those the best kind of dinners though?  =) 

I'm so glad that we found each other since all three of us moved to Boston for the first time without knowing too many people.  It was such a fun night, and I can't wait for more to come! =)

Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful weekend!
