I went back to work a few months ago, and it has truly been the worst thing ever. I don't get to see my baby all day, then when I do see her I am exhausted. This working mom gig is no joke and I am not cut out for it. My student loans dictate that it must continue, unfortunately. We've grown too accustomed to having a house to live in, food to eat, and a bed to sleep in.
So, while I suffer through this really hard thing I have to do and absolutely hate, I am always trying to find ways to save time on other projects so I can devote the little free time I have to spending time with my baby girl when I have the chance.
As you know, I'm always trying to find ways to incorporate more veggies into our meals, and have shared recipes where I have substituted veggies for pasta. I did it here with my zucchini lasagna, here with my zoodle date night recipe, and here the most recently with my spaghetti squash spaghetti recipe.
Well, wonder of wonders, miracle of miracles, as I was grocery shopping last week I found bags of pre-spiralized veggie s in the frozen foods section! I bought spiralized zucchini, carrots, beets, sweet potatoes, and I think a few others.
Pre-spiralized veggie saves me so much time! On days where I don't have to work I don't mind using my spiralizer to create my own veggie pasta, but when I get home dead tired after work and just want to spend time with my baby, these pre-made zoodle (and other veggie noodle) bags are a life saver!
Now you may also remember this post from awhile back where my mom shared with you how to make this chicken cacciatore in the crock pot, with a little help from Panna!
Well, with my powers combined, I took the pre-made zoodles, and made the Crock Pot Chicken Cacciatore. When I put them together, I had a culinary masterpiece!!
This is such a great dinner options for when you're on the go. You don't need chicken nuggets from McDonalds, or anywhere else! Just pull a bag of pre-spiralized zoodles, or any other time of veggie noodle from your freezer, and follow the directions. In less than ten minutes your zoodles are ready! Just like pasta you can top them with anything, and I would highly suggest the Chicken Cacciatore!
