Now you can really get your fill without the complex of carb overload that comes with eating pasta. I really love that the noodles in this recipe are made with veggies instead of pasta, as I'm really trying to avoid carbs...and cucumber pasta too, yum! Shrimp is no doubt the perfect accompaniment to this light and spicy veggie delight and I can't wait to try it. Do you know how long before the cucumber noodles get soggy...or will they hold?

Vegan Scalloped Potatoes, made with no dairy(milk, butter, cheese). Use almond milk, herbs,and spices to make sauce! Yummy!

I like turkey with baked or roasted vegetables-lots of them.

I like to make smashed cauliflower instead of potatoes.

We always serve fish on Christmas Eve with salad and fruit for dessert.
