Dessert is always a challenge as my girlfriend is not a fan of “sweets” (I know *gasp*)… unless of course they’re wrapped in bacon. I should mention, this is the only way I’ve gotten her to ingest fruit this year other than our notorious Smooth Buzzies.
I love zucchini. There is literally nothing you can do wrong with zucchini. On the BBQ, in the oven, or in a salad it tastes absolutely delicious and cooks very fast. At 17 calories/100 g it’s a great source of potassium and anti-oxidants. I could make a whole meal of just pan-seared zucchini with salt and pepper, but for a complete meal that hits all the right nutritional notes and plates very nicely, this is one of my favourite recipes.
In today’s edition of NomNoms: Sweet & Spicy Greek Meatballs. One of my girlfriend’s favourites, served with a side of bitter greens, greek dressing, feta and the fattest sour cream my grocery store can legally sell.
