Hi and welcome to DC, by the way

EDIT: Hmm, Amazon UK has spiral cutters but at nearly £30 - roughly speaking that's $45 (gulp!) - I think I could probably do without one.
Thanks for the welcome mad cook. Yes, good for low carb or those on a diet. But ya know? It's just good for anyone... don't HAVE to be on a diet... maybe just like to eat healthy. I love my pasta, but always make too much (I think maybe accidentally on purpose), and eat it all! I paid $15 US for that Veggetti Spiralizer at a Bed, Bath & Beyond Store here.

Yesterday I watched an old episode of Julia and Jacques make potatoes. Jacques made a potato and onion casserole with chicken stock for the liquid. It look interesting. I think if I give the potatoes a head start in the microwave oven while I am slicing the onions it will cut down of the oven time. I love potatoes and onions. And you can never add too much garlic to anything.

I have seen that episode a few times before. But I never thought I wanted to try his recipe for the potato. I was always more interested in the standard scalloped one that Julia made.

The dressing for this intrigues me:

Summer Macaroni Salad w/ Pancetta and Peas in a Lemon-Thyme Dressing

Next, it'll be lemon zoodles (fresh herbs, lemon, fresh garlic, white wine & a sprinkle of parm. with grilled shrimp and cherry tomatoes. There are only 3 small meatballs in that pic... I cut them in half.



I have one of these:

SpirooliĀ® Spiral Slicer - BedBathandBeyond.ca

I use it to make this recipe:

Zucchini Spaghetti and Tomato Sauce - Steven and Chris

I also use it to make a zucchini slaw. I've never thought to use it to make onion spirals. I don't use it except during zucchini season. It spends most of its time in the basement in the dark.

AND bolding the fonts! Uses more ink of course, but better than mis-reading the measurement in a recipe.

Now that looks absolutely scrumptious. Thank you for sharing, pac. I love grilled kebabs - next time I will get some chorizo and pair them with the chicken. Lovely!

Thank you for the nice comment, Cheryl.
I like kebabs... now. I never really cared for them before, but the combination of meats and seasonings in this one is going to put it in roation. I'll cut and freeze the chorizo and chicken in single kebab portions.

Is that a challenge, because I love a challenge! I read your post in the voice of Chandler Bing.
