I’m glad we got to see some cactus flowers before leaving the desert. Earlier this week I made Brian pull the truck over so I could take this photo. I scrambled up a hill in the wrong shoes and definitely regretted it on the way back down as I fell and scraped up my leg.
Dinner Last Night:
I haven’t been sticking to my menu at all this week. So last night we wanted to eat with our neighbors, but everything I had planned was going to take too long, so I threw together rice noodles, broccoli and zucchini topped with peanuts and this sauce:
Peanut Noodle Sauce:
1/2 c. light coconut milk
1/2 c. fire-roasted or stewed tomatoes
1/4 c. peanut butter
3 T. sodium soy sauce
juice of 1 lime
2 t. minced ginger
1 t. minced garlic
1 T. maple syrup
sriracha to taste
Combine coconut milk, tomatoes, peanut butter, soy sauce, lime juice, ginger, garlic, maple syrup and sriracha, in a blender until smooth.
It’s quick, easy and tasty. Happy Friday!
