Zucchini Spaghetti with Tomato Basil & Goat Cheese

I have several things to tell y’all, 1. I can’t find my camera. I know it’s in my house I just misplaced it ( so please excuse the quality of the upcoming photos), 2. I can’t find my Julienne peeler ( I know it’s in Memphis just not sure whose house it’s at), 3. I hope my mom isn’t reading this post.


Also, completely switching gears, I just wanted to share with y’all how thankful I feel tonight. Katie and I were talking about rush and school starting and I just got to thinking of how the Lord has always been faithful and He has always provided at just the right time with just the right thing. I am so thankful for those hardships looking back because I know how close I felt to the Lord and when there was no one I could count on  ( except my family and closest friends of course) that is when I have completely depended on the Him and that’s when I have felt closest in my relationship and I am thankful for those times. ***making a note to look back at this when something happens and I need a reminder.


Back to supper. Tonight, I made zucchini spaghetti with turkey meatballs and tomato basil sauce with goat cheese. This is one of those meals that makes me think of sitting at the butcher block watching my mom whip this up before a football game or some weeknight  happening in high school. This was a standby for me when I needed to fit into my cheerleading uniform or spring break bikini. I definitely still love this healthy, comfort food and know how much more I would have loved making it with my Julienne peeler 😉
