I tried an experiment recently. I wanted to make zucchini noodles (zoodles) but didn't have a spiralizer (yet!), so I dug out a tool I've had for years to find out how well it might work.
My mandolin. This is a tool that just proves what a sucker I am for a good marketer. I went to Belk to buy a pillow one day and came home with this thing after watching a live demo! ("It slices...it dices.") :)
Well, it didn't have the ability to spiralize. The best I could do was cut my zucchini into matchsticks. I was hopeful!
I decided to have shrimp with zoodles so peeled the shrimp.
Then I cooked the shrimp and zucchini in a little butter and added some spices.
It didn't turn out very well. The zucchini was rather mushy and a little watery.
Not very appealing in the photos. After dinner, I went online and ordered a spiralizer. I sure hope it makes better zoodles. I plan to share the outcome in another post later.
My fingers are crossed for something yummy!
Oh! I almost forgot. I have a new novella I just released!
