Goddess GrubMay 14, 2010 at 12:00 am | Posted in Dinner | 8 Comments
Well it wasn’t actually grub that we ate, actually alot better. 🙂 Know why?? Cause my favorite goddesses helped me make it, and the recipes came from another lady who I certainly consider a goddess: Ree Drummond. Well I love me some Kel and Bethany and I love me some Pioneer Woman. All three always bring a smile to my face when I see them and/or read their words. Especially lately as Ree is becoming so famous, etc. I love reading her accounts of her travels for her book tours and the way she talks about her kids and Marlboro Man.
Well this recipe was proclaimed Ree’s most favorite salad ever eveer everrrrr and I found it in the Cowgirl food category. I mean, where else should you go looking for recipes for a girlie party than a category that proclaims that men will not touch this food with a ten foot pole! Well this was one of the most fresh and tasty noodle salads I have ever made and it was fantastic (on the day I made it, third and fourth day not so much…) . Bell peppers, cabbage, cilantro, cucumber, sprouts, scallions, cold linguine noodles, all with a spicy uber flavorful asian dressing. I can just hear you thinking about having your girlfriends over to eat this!!! Now go check out our other dish of that night!
In order to keep the asian flavors flowing, I made lettuce wraps too! I used ground turkey, red peppers, onions, water chestnuts (super crucial) and cooked it all up with another uber flavorful asian concoction of sauces. I made these again on Wednesday night cause I loved it so much (and I had leftover water chestnuts…). Ned tasted the meat and swore he could not tell at all that it was ground turkey, so actually these are very healthy and its just crazy because healthy things don’t usually taste this good!!!
So that concludes my tasty asian meal. Makes me super thankful for spending a whole $8 on a wok at Ikea so I can make food that is so much better than any typical asian chain restaurant!! Now go check out Pioneer Woman. She writes the most clever, funny and interesting things, well mostly just funny. I hope I grow up to be just like her when I grow up. Do you hear that Ned?? I’m telling you we have to move to Oklahoma and own a cattle ranch!!
