What We Ate: BLTs, Flank Steak Fajitas, Zucchini Noodles

BLTs

BLTs

Ok, this isn’t a recipe, but look how pretty! I bought day-old bread from Jimmy John’s to make the sandwiches and we took them on a picnic. They were fabulous.

Flank Steak Fajitas

The bell peppers are supposed to cook down, of course, but mine cooked down so far the skin was practically all that was left. If I made this again, I’d wait until halfway through the cooking time to add the peppers to the crockpot. The steak was bland, too, since the vegetables had released so much liquid the seasoning was washed away. BUT, I think this would be really good if I could get around those problems. I might even cook the peppers separately. It was good, just not great.

Zuchinni Comfort Noodles

You guys have been holding out on me! I’ve heard you talk about zucchini pasta and I thought it was like cauliflower rice or, for that matter, cauliflower pizza crust. Which is to say: not that close. I mean, it works. I guess. But it’s not fooling anyone. This zucchini on the other hand? WOW. So good. You can tell the difference between this and pasta, but who cares? As someone who hasn’t really eaten white pasta in years (Thomas loves the whole wheat, blech) I was in heaven. It was just…wow.

  1. That bread from Jimmy John’s is THE BEST.

  2. You can buy bread from Jimmy Johns?!

    • I was going to ask the same thing! Fill us in! How?

      • You know how when you go to Jimmy John’s, sometimes they have wrapped loaves of bread on top of the case – kind of like a decoration? Well, you can buy those! They’re bread from the day before and it’s only 45 cents! I try to go as early as possible, because they wrap it so the ends are exposed, meaning it could get a little stale. It’s never been a problem for me, though.

    • Yes! It’s only 45 cents a loaf (which they cut in half to make sandwiches so it’s like you’re getting two!). They sell fresh bread, too, for two dollars a loaf. It’s getting to the point where I call them my bakery:)
