In the last 24hours, Sean and I drove for nearly 12 hours. We were in Stoney Creek near Peterborough for the weekend, left there Monday morning to get to a meeting in Arnprior for 2, then across through Algonquin Park, up to Parry Sound, then back to Muskoka, and home to Toronto today.

Everyone stopped in Algonquin Park to see a moose & moose baby!

It was nice driving together and seeing the sights, but after all that time in the car, I couldn’t wait to get home, ride my bike, do laundry, and make something healthy. We’d been eating mostly roadside snacks (chipwagon, pizza, etc) so I was really craving vegetables.  Hopped on my bike when I got home and zipped over the new West Queen West Metro. Didn’t realise how hot it was out so I was pretty sweaty lol but it was so nice to be back on the road. ☀️🚴🏼‍♀️

WAIT, HOW DID THAT BUTTER TART GET IN THERE?

If you’ve seen my tweets you’ll know I got a spiralizer. I didn’t know I wanted one but now I am obsessed! I’ve been making zucchini noodles with avocado cream dressing topped with grilled chicken. It’s so light and delicious.

I made it today when I got home scroll done for deets, it’s so easy!

What You Need to Make Perfect Summer Zucchini Avocado Pasta

  • Zucchini (for noodles)
  • Chicken breast (optional)
  • For Sauce
    • Avocado 🥑
    • Shallots
    • Cherry tomatoes 🍅
    • Garlic
    • Olive oil
    • Basil 🌿
  1. Cook chicken breast in the oven at 375 for 45 minutes/until cooked, or pop on a BBQ and grill to perfection.
  2. While the chicken is cooking, spiral those noodles. If you don’t have zucchini or a spiralizer, use regular noodles. The sauce is really the best part!
  3. Mix garlic, onion, avocado,🥑 tomatoes, fresh basil, and olive oil in a Magic Bullet, Food Processor, or some other mixer thing. Set side for a minute. It’s time to make the noodles.
  4. Heat a bit of olive oil in frying pan until it’s very hot. Toss zucchini noodles in the pan for a 2-3 minutes moving them around the whole time. They will cook super fast and you don’t want to overcook or they will get soft/mushy. Think al dente!
  5. Throw in the sauce and chicken and mix it around for a minute until warm.
  6. Add salt & pepper to taste.
  7. ENJOY!

I recommend eating outside and enjoying the weather. I was so hot after my ride and I decided to stay in and watch Young & the Restless! 😝✌🏼 Yes, after 35 years, I’m still watching!
