Zucchini Spaghetti with Meat Sauce

Zucchini Spaghetti is a fabulous alternative for spaghetti if you really want to watch your carbs and I made my spaghetti meat sauce with 99% lean ground turkey breast.  Yes, it looks white in the sauce but I can not tell a difference in the flavor and I still get to have my meat sauce without the red meat!  If your trying to watch your weight and eat more healthy give this a try.  If you do not have a mandolin, use a vegetable peeler and have wider noodles.

Barbecue Sauce, Tangy and Homemade

Homemade tangy barbecue sauce is so simple and easy to make.  This is so good on any kind of meat, you'll want to slather it on and on and on.  I just happened to slather this on a piece of grilled chicken.  It is so darn tangy!  I just want to keep dipping my finger in for a taste and then another, and then another, it's addicting.    I promise it is better than anything you can buy and yet it is homemade just by you and no one else.  
What's better than homemade?

Rotel Chicken Stuffed Poblano Peppers

Poblano peppers!  Are they hot or not?  Some of these babie can be hot!  The heat is found in the seeds and membranes (remove if you do not want the heat). Typically poblanos are very mild in flavor and very delicious.  They are low in carbohydrates (2.7grams per 1 pepper), high in Vitamin C and Potassium (113.28m per raw pepper).  If you boil the pepper it will cause you to loose most of the nutritional value but roasting the pepper will prevent too much potassium loss.  Besides it's easier to peel the skins off!  These are going to be really good stuffed with chicken that has been cooked with Rotel tomatoes and then pureed and poured over the stuffed peppers.  (Rotel is a brand name and is not paying me to advertise for them, I just like their product!)

This is what they look like before I roasted them!
