Do the can can. . .

I ended up getting 4 quart and 4 pint jars (plus a little extra!) from last Saturday’s salsa making.

 

We stoppd at the store on the way home and picked up a sesame ginger marinated pork roast turkey tenderloin!- buy one get one free!

For side dishes, I decided to keep the Asian theme going.

First up: Spicy pickled cucumbers

  • 6 ounces sliced English cucumber
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil
  • 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp. splenda
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar

Heat oil and red pepper flakes over medium heat for 1 minute.  Remove and cool.  Mix vinegar and splenda together and toss with cucumbers.  Refrigerate for 30 minutes.  Just before serving, toss with cooled oil/pepper mixture.  WARNING: VERY SPICY! 

The second Asian Spaghetti Squash

  • 6 ounces cooked spaghetti squash
  • 1/2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp. sesame oil
  • 1 tsp. rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp. soy sauce
  • pinch Splenda
  • pinch crushed red pepper
  • 2 ounces shredded carrot
  • 1 tsp. toasted sesame flakes

Mix all together.  I left this at room temperture – my daughter liked this, but the cucumbers are all mine – too hot for her!

Daughter’ Lunch:

While we were at the movies, my daughter has been craving stir fry and was saddened that I had stir fry twice for lunch this past week!  She made this stir fry, but added those tofu noodles and the results were disasterous – she couldn’t get past the fact that it felt like she was eating worms!  I didn’t have the same reaction, so I suppose its a preference!

Her dish looks pretty though!
