Peanutty Noodles with Veggies

In the past 24 hours…

Gina and I have decided to dissolve our podcast.

I’ve felt better than I have in 2+ weeks (thank you, man cold and some other GI-related torture).

College basketball has kicked off.

Our fridge is barren and we opted for carry-out Chinese tonight.

Basically, the weekend is kicking off swimmingly! In fact, while Mark took the girls to swim team tonight, I left work and headed straight for a nature trail walk followed by a bath. It was GLORIOUS! I got out of the bath and donned my pink, fluffy, over-sized robe before heating a knock on our back door. It was one of our regular babysitters who showed up a week early. OOPS.

I politely told her she was a week early (confirming my text message was crystal clear) and proceeded to the couch with my kindle. Carrie Soto is Back, halfway through, is a book I’m devouring. I love tennis and this book is feeding my soul. 

We opted for dinner out because we ate nearly all of our leftovers last night. Hence, the barren fridge. It was nachos, pizza, and brussels sprouts last night and you know what? I had some happy campers. I sent our nanny home with homemade pesto this week after our basil plants were plucked clean for the year, and her husband was sending me messages about how “lucky” my husband and family are with all of my homemade cooking.

“Ask your wife, my crew would love nothing more than for me to shelve cooking all together.” He confirmed that she confirmed this fact.

Y’all I can’t win. Or more accurately, my wins are far and few between. This one, though, was a recommendation from Gina and it was a BIG hit with my crew. We’re peanut butter lovers and there was no shortage of peanutty goodness in this one!
