Swedish Chef

One of my favorite Muppets is the Swedish Chef. He happily throws what ever is at hand into a dish or pot and calls it cuisine. Be it the live lobster, Rizo or Miss Piggy that he is chasing with the meat cleaver. That is how I approached dinner tonight.

Well, I didn't chase any small animals around with cutlery, but I did open the fridge and said, "Hm, let's see what happens when this is combined." Now, this can be a very dangerous experiment. There have been many of nights that I've gone to bed hungry from food experiments run awry. But tonight was a winner. I rate this as a mostly healthy meal. Kids, do not try this at home with out Adult supervision and a canine or feline taste-tester.

Summer Pad Thai:

1/2 cooked spaghetti squash, cooked and forked out in long strands
1/2 package of frozen stir fry veggies
1/2 cup water
1 chicken bullion
1 tbsp chunky peanut butter
1 tsp sesame seed oil

Dissolve bullion in water heated in the microwave. Stir in peanut butter, ginger, and basil. (red pepper if you like a little spice) Put squash in a bowl, put frozen veggies on top. Sprinkle with sesame seed oil. Heat bowl in microwave about 2 minutes. Add peanut butter mixture and heat for another 3-4 minutes until veggies are cooked. Mix all together, garnish with basil and enjoy! Two servings. (or one if you are really digging the way it turned out)
