Happy Monday friends! After a long swimming-packed rest weekend – It was hard to get rolling this morning. But it’s a Monday and I’m not big on excuses. So the day started. Running. Swimming. Tennis and then volunteering for me and my girls. Pretty uneventful day except that our weather has gotten terribly hot here. It was 80 degrees at 5 am. Heatwave has arrived… much to my dismay. I know, the snow will be here before we know it but geez this is the fringe of hell heat.
This recipe was created last week. I’m always looking for extra ways to add protein to meals. I was shocked when even my 78 year old very Italian father ate the pasta with the lentils! He liked it. #forthewin But I have to give credit where credit is due… my youngest volunteers at two senior centers during the week. She picked up a monstrous zucchini at their market and I knew I had to make some zoodles with it… I’m mean really, what else could I do with a 5 lb zucchini she was so proud that she bought me?
