Here's my newest handcrafted Peruvian bead!
This cutie has been added to a lanyard available in my Etsy shop!
Asian Style Spaghetti Squash
This is something I'd been wanting to try for a while!
Using dehydrated peppers was also new to me! These are pasilla chilis which are medium on the hotness scale. These were finely chopped and hydrated in hot water which actually created nice broth.
Another first was cooking the squash whole and then slicing it. I personally can't cut a raw squash!!! Jim normally cuts them in half before baking.
I started with sauteeing half a head of cabbage chopped up, 1 diced bell pepper, mushrooms and sliced baby carrots in some veggie oil. Then I added the chopped dried peppers with its broth.
No additional hot spices were needed. I just used some soy sauce and some dried green onions to taste. The flavor came out delicious. I was so proud since this was completely concocted in my head!
Everything was cooked to desired texture. Then I carved out the spaghetti squash (discarded the seeds) and mixed it all up. So healthy and really satisfies a craving for Asian food. Also less carbs without the noodles!
Jim wasn't with me when I made this but I mentioned it was missing something and I could not figure out what! He suggest nuts. That is exactly what it could use. Maybe chopped peanuts, cashews or almonds. Next time!!!
It was time! Time to open a second Etsy shop!
This may actually take a month to complete. You will now see 2 Etsy Minis on the side bar. Eventually there will be 1 shop with my finished creations and 1 shop with findings and supplies.
Since it is unacceptable to have the same listing in more than 1 shop I am slowly creating listings in the new shop while deleting them from the original shop. It is quite time consuming but well worth it for my future plans!
Thank you for stopping by! I hope I've inspired you to cook something delicious! ~Val
