Peanut Sriracha Noodle Bowl [Recipe]

I’m convinced you can put peanut butter on anything.

It’s even good on bacon.

There’s not bacon in this peanut sauce, but now that I think of it… there night be next time!  This was strange enough for round 1 though, particularly when you add kelp noodles.

Don’t be scared of kelp noodles – they don’t really taste like anything and, for those that are concerned, they are gluten-free and nearly calorie-free.  The weirdest part about these noodles is the texture; they’re almost crunchy!  You could use this sauce with any noodle though.  And you could top it with anything.  I chose the tasty Sizzlefish Thai Salmon.

Banana Walnut Protein Pancakes [Recipe] + WIAW

WIAW is on the move again this week!

Because I haven’t had enough  moving…

Here’s the deal.  What I Ate Wednesday has been jumping around to give mamma Jenn a break.  She’s entrusted me this week with hosting duties (which may be a sign she’s taken up a crack habit… is rehab where she’s disappeared to?!). 

Since I’m sooooo known for sugar coating things, I’m going to come out and say that the link up got a bit out of control and Jenny from the block was suffering from exhaustion. WIAW was meant to just be a day of eats.  Don’t be linking shit from 5 weeks ago, everything you ate for the past 3 weeks, or some unrelated giveaway you’re trying to get more traffic for.  Follow the rules and don’t be greedy.  In short, don’t be a dick.

Spaghetti Fritters. Sort Of.

I’m full of good ideas.

Or maybe just ideas…

We had leftover spaghetti and bison red sauce from when Vegas cooked the other night.  I wasn’t about to eat it like a “normal” person.  Surprised?

I decided they’d be great as fritters if I added zucchini noodles and some egg to bind it.  A bit strange, but really when is pasta and sauce not good?

Irish Cream Protein Pancakes + WIAW

Moving is exhausting.

I’m mentally tired.

Organizing, cleaning, and decorating are not my favorite things.  Doing that while working and dealing with annoying shit that comes with closing on the sale of my condo has left me grouchy.  People commenting on my lack of cooking gets me fired up.  We just got a working oven and found time to grocery shop.  If I want to have some beers, then I will.  Jeeeeeeesus.

The Whole Foods has a bar.  It really is like heaven here.

This isn’t a blogger rant.  These are Facebook friends.  I’ve actually been loving going out in our new neighborhood and trying out new things workout-wise.  I’ve taken up boxing and tried out jiu jitsu.  I’ve been running more.  Ending the day jogging back home to Vegas with this view makes me incredibly happy:

San Diego Move-In Food

Anyone need boxes?

Actually, we posted an ad on Craigslist and someone came for them within hours!

The thing about packing that you have to unpack.  While a couple drinks (ok, maybe more than a couple) makes packing easier, it makes unpacking full of hilarious surprises.  Apparently at some point I gave up and just added IDK to a box (that’s “I don’t know” for those of you who don’t have millennial siblings or kids).

Leaving Atlanta’s Weather + WIAW

Sometimes Mother Nature is a big help.

I know most of you think I’m nuts based on the US weather as of late.

This was my view this morning:

My camera couldn't pick up the snow very well so I took some artistic license.

Strange But Good: Moving Food

It’s getting a little odd.

Next week should be really interesting.

I refuse to buy more food until I go.  There’s enough in my freezer to feed a small African village me for months.  Not to mention all the going away dinners and lunches.  No way do I need to go shopping.  But look out, Whole Foods San Diego.

As such, there are no real recipes.  There are concoctions, favorites from local spots, and dinners with my family (you know that always gets strange).  Because when your house looks like this, everything is a little strange… but oh, so good.

Chasing My Tail + WIAW

Is there such a thing as a moving consultant?

I need to be project planned.

In my “normal” life I’m pretty organized.  I’m structured.  I have a routine and I like it.  Some might call me Type A (though you wouldn’t know it from the past couple months… I blame Vegas).

Anytime I move it’s a whole new story.  I turn into a Jack Russell puppy chasing it’s tail.  I have bubble wrap everywhere.  Piles of shit I  have no idea what to do with.  Empty boxes.  Boxes that are 75% full… but that I can’t seal because I’m looking for little odds and ends I can cram it the remaining 25% (you know those odd spaces that need to be stuffed by nothing really fit in?).

Red Velvet Oreos, Wine, + WIAW

The competition is off.

I don’t know how I thought I was going to pull that one off.

I just got married.  I’m moving across the country (anyone want to buy a condo in Midtown Atlanta???).  And I was going to do a competition… a week after moving.  HAHAHAHA!  I’m stubborn.  I don’t understand the word “no.”  But even I’m not quite THAT crazy.

Also, red velvet Oreos are delicious with Zinfandel.  We all know I have an Oreo thing.  That red velvet is definitely contender for the top flavor.  The cookie isn’t so different, but that cream cheese filling rocks my world.
