Garlicky Zucchini Noodles


If you have a vegetable garden or frequent farm stands, you may have noticed that zucchini season is in full swing.  I’m always on the lookout for recipes using our zucchini bumper crop and when I spotted this recipe in the newest issue of Better Homes & Garden, I knew I had to try it.  It was delish! Nice combination of flavors, sweet and salty along with crunchy of the nuts and the softness of the “noodles.”

Garlicky Zucchini Noodles

source: Better Homes & Garden, August 2014

2 medium zucchini
3 Tbsp walnut oil or olive oil
6 cloves of garlic, smashed, peeled and halved
1/2 cup walnut pieces
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
4 thin slices prosciutto, torn
1 medium green apple, thinly sliced
4 oz soft goat cheese

1. Using a spiral vegetable slice (like this one I just bought from Amazon.com), cut zucchini into long thin noodles.
2. In a large skillet heat 2 Tbsp of the oil over medium-high heat. Add garlic. Cook, stirring constantly, 2 minutes or until just starting to brown.
3. Add zucchini; cook and toss with tongs for 1 minute. Transfer to a serving bowl.
4. Add walnuts to the skillet and stir for 1-2 minutes until toasted. Add to bowl with zucchini. Add 1/2 tsp kosher salt and crushed red pepper and toss.
5. Add remaining 1 Tbsp of oil to the skillet and then add prosciutto. Cook 1 minute or until browned and crisp. Add to zucchini mixture along with the apples. Top with goat cheese.

Makes 6 servings.

Attention Market Basket shoppers…


I know many of you visit This Mama Knows to get the deal match ups for Market Basket, the Google analytics info tells me that.  So, I am sure you are well aware of the debacle going on at all Market Basket stores, empty shelves and parking lots that are ghost towns—minus the store employees and supporters holding signs in support of the ousted CEO, Arthur T. Demoulas.

I am just amazed (and I am not using that word lightly) that so many employee and customers are flocking to support a person.  But after reading countless stories about Arthur T.’s selfless acts and generosity, I am not surprised one bit.  I was in a Market Basket store last Saturday morning and the shelves were already becoming bare.  Again for curiosity’s sake, I stopped in on Monday and the situation was even worse, no produce, no fresh meat, no seafood and the other shelves were only about 1/4 the way stocked.  For that reason, in addition to supporting the protesters I did my grocery shopping elsewhere this week.  My wallet took a bit more of hit than normal, but I just had to get creative and deal with it.

If you are a Market Basket shopper and feeling the pain in the wallet for having (or choosing) to shop elsewhere, here are some suggestions for you:

  • Hannaford: If you aren’t familiar with Hannaford, they are a great store, the produce and meat are really high quality.  You can even check the prices of nearly every item they carry in a particular store on their website.  You can also view their sales flyer online as well.  Their prices do vary slightly depending on the location.
  • Shaw’s:  Yes, Shaw’s is expensive for most things, but if you shop just their sale items and use coupons, you can find some great deals there that even beat Market Basket prices.  The best deals this week at Shaw’s can be found here.
  • Shop local farmers markets or farm stands, meat markets and local stores.  For example, my local small town convenience store has a butcher counter and sells ground beef for $3.99/lb.  It is ground fresh to order and is from a local farm and is the best tasting beef.
  • Trader Joe’s:  The past two weeks I have done my grocery shopping at Trader Joe’s.  Its not convenient for me to go that often, but I love the stuff they carry.  The organic produce is very reasonable ($2.99 for 3 pack of romaine hearts!) and they have a nice selection of gluten free items too.  Their frozen pizzas are some of the best as well.  They also accept manufacturer’s coupons.

ENLIGHTENED Ice Cream Giveaway


If you have perused your ice cream aisle lately (admit it, you have!) you may have noticed a new product called ENLIGHTENED Ice Cream that offers a better-for-you ice cream option.  ENLIGHTENED Ice Cream is all natural, low in calories, high in protein and fiber.  It also contains only 3 grams of sugar and just 2 grams of fat. Did I also mention that is very tasty and comes in some mouth watering varieties? Yep it does.

enlightenedCheck out the available flavors:

  • Fudge
  • Orange Cream
  • Coffee
  • Peanut Butter
  • Toasted Almond
  • Vanilla Bean Sandwiches
  • Mint Sandwiches

I recently tried the Vanilla Bean Sandwiches and was quite pleased with the flavor and texture.  It was very much like a classic ice cream sandwich, but with only 100 calories, it was a diet bargain for sure.  My husband is into fitness and nutrition recently commented that the nutrition is similar to a protein bar, giving you a 8 grams of protein.  He seems to think that these are his new pre-workout snack! Needless to say I have to hide them from him now.

To find a store near you that carries ENLIGHTENED Ice Cream, use the store locator found on their website.  While you are on their website, be sure to also sign up for their email newsletter to stay up to date on the latest promotions and coupons.

Deadline for entries is Saturday August 16th at 12:01 am EST. The winner will be contacted via email and has 48 hours to respond before a new winner is selected. This giveaway is open to residents of the US only, age 18 years or older. By entering this giveaway you are agreeing to my terms of use.
