Hello friends!

♥ ♥ ♥

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Mine although not eventful was very good. For small reasons, but those are the best reasons right?

Matt and I spent an awesome Saturday together watching some pre-season football games and had amazing conversations. As simple as that sounds it was just what we needed I think. And Sunday while he was off doing his fantasy football draft, I took the liberty of treating myself to a pedicure.

Sometimes it’s the small simple things that make day’s marvelous.

But today to make it even more marvelous I have a recipe to share with you guys!

♥ ♥ ♥

I mentioned in my last post that I got some of my cooking mojo back.

It’s a slow process and I have found so many recipes that I want to make, so let’s hope I can keep with it and start cooking and being creative again!

I did tease you with one dinner that I made recently that was too good not to share.

It’s so simple to make, yet so delicious.

I love the spicy peanut sauce so I usually make an extra batch and use it for dipping, I also use extra braggs liquid aminos or soy sauce for more dipping too.
What can I say. I’m a dipper!

This dish is great because it can easily be modified for whatever veggies or pasta you have on hand. It can also be made vegetarian by substituting tofu or tempeh for the chicken.  I have plans to use both because anything in that sauce will be amazing.

Well loves I hope you all have a great Monday.
Stay Marvelous.
