You're going to have to excuse me, because I am devouring dinner as I post this. Looking for something different to do with my spaghetti squash other than, well, spaghetti... I decided to try Melissa Joulwan's (theclothesmakethegirl) Paleo Pad Thai recipe. Holy Thai-ledo this shit is good. It's exactly what I like in food... comforting and a crazy good blend of flavors.
For a good picture, and the recipe, go here. Hey, it's bedtime already and I'm too busy scarfing this down, so hasty, non-pretty or touched up phone pic here we go. When I stir-fried the chicken and such, I added julienned cucumber, carrots, sundried tomato in addition to what she recommends. While that was happening, I tossed my spaghetti squash with a little aminos, pepper, ribboned basil and cilantro to let it almost infuse. Yum by itself. Then on top of it all I sprinkled scallions and raw cashews. There was the surprise of a new flavor in each bite, the cilantro or basil, a sundried tomato next... and let me tell you, you will want to make seconds or thirds of the Sunshine Sauce and you will want to drink it.
This chick rocks my world. Not only do I think she's my inner self manifested, but she lives the badass life I only do on Saturdays. Maybe I'll meet her when I move back to Austin. Ok, girl crush over.
I don't frequent Asian restaurants very often, although sometimes I crave their new flavors added to my repertoire. This is definitely one of my new go-to comfort items.
