Happy Valentine’s Day!!!

We had a wonderful time in Hawaii – many pina coladas and snorkeling trips. I even jumped off a 32′ rock bridge into the ocean, which was super scary. Here are a few random snapshots:

We sadly came back to reality and back to the grocery store. I tried an AMAZING new recipe that I got from Real Simple Magazine, that I wanted to share with you. The recipe is Gingery Peanut Noodles with Chicken. It was a really easy recipe. Step 1: Shred a rotisserie chicken.

Chop up the veggies. I left the skin on the cucumber and was happy that I did. Seemed to keep them crisp.

Cook the pasta. I used fettuccine (Real Simple recommended spaghetti).

While the pasta is cooking blend the peanut butter, water, ginger, soy sauce, brown sugar and rice vinegar. It will be really watery but don’t worry, the food will soak up the deliciousness.

The final result was an instant hit with me and the hubby. He said the leftovers were still as good the next day. Hope you enjoy!
