Meatless Monday- Thai Zoodles!

May is one of the best times of year for locally produce.  While summer is right around the corner, you can still find a ton of great items that are produced locally.  One of our favorites is Thai Peanut Zoodles! You can purchase a zoodle maker online for a few bucks and it’s a great way to ‘sneak’ veggies of all kinds into some kid-friendly dishes like spaghetti! Check out these easy peanut noodles- or substitute in another type of nut or seed butter!
