It’s really difficult for me to write this post right now because I’m STARVING and these pictures are absolutely killing me.
That might sound a little dramatic, but there’s nothing to eat in my house right now and I’ve been clinically diagnosed with sever hanger issues.
I just got back from Orlando (Disney! Wizarding World of Harry Potter! Typhoon Lagoon!) with my sister and 5-year-old niece, and I’m not sure I’ve ever been so exhausted.
Traveling is always a bit tiring, but I’m not sure anyone knows the meaning of exhaustion until they’ve visited 6 theme parks in 4 days with a 5-year old. Those of you that follow me on Snapchat (@wanderlustkitch) have been keeping up with the madness. It was such a blast, and I loved being able to spend so much quality time with my sister and niece, but HOLY COW do kids wear you out.
Since I’ve been gone so much these past few months (I’ve been on the road 6 out of the past 10 weeks!), my pantry and fridge have been looking pretty pathetic.
I’ve been hesitant to buy a lot of groceries because I hate to see things go bad, but then every time I get home from a trip I have zero food in the house and get stuck eating popcorn and wine for dinner (not a bad option, honestly).
Before I left for Orlando, I made these fabulous Spicy Thai-Style Grilled Veggie Skewers. I had lots of leftovers, so I got creative and turned them into these Thai veggie noodle bowls! The noodles are slurpy, the veggies are spicy, and the peanuts are crunchy. Perfection, my dear friends.
Alright, it’s time for me to sign off so I can get myself to the grocery store and re-stock my kitchen. I’ve got lots of fun recipes planned for this week!
Here’s Your Recipe!
A cilantro-heavy marinade is the star in this versatile recipe for Spicy Thai-Style Grilled Veggie Skewers. An easy side-dish for a summer BBQ, these veggies can also take the center stage when served atop a bowl of rice or noodles.
