Serve The Lord With Gladness

Oodles of Zoodles! This is a healthy and delicious way of having pasta. No, I didn't buy another nifty kitchen gadget called spirilizer to spirilized the zucchini. I use a vegetable shredder which works just as well.

To keep this meal healthy, I have it with a quick home cooked tomato stew and buttermilk roast chicken.

Zoodles In Tomato Stew for one

1 large tomato
1/2 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme/rosemary(I used both)
1 tsp of chopped garlic
2 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
sea salt and black pepper to taste.


  • Chop tomato into small cubes. 
  • Minced garlic and chop the fresh herbs
  • Heat the oil in the pan, fry garlic and add the chopped tomatoes. 
  • Throw in the herbs and add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Cook tomatoes in low heat for about 10 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the zoodles.

Maple Buttermilk Roast Chicken For Two

4 chicken thighs
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup buttermilk
1tablespoon pure maple syrup
2 tsp of sea salt to taste
freshly grind black pepper
1 sprig of fresh thyme or rosemary
1 crushed garlic


  • Combine all ingredients in a bag ( taste the marinade to check if more maple syrup or salt/pepper needed)
  • Keep in the chiller for a day or two.
  • Roast in 190-200C oven for 35-40 mins.

You need carbo to fuel your day? then have it with dauphinoise potatoes which is also simple and easy to prepare.

Simple Dauphinoise Potatoes for One

2 large potato
1 crushed garlic
1/4 milk
1/4 cream
salt and pepper to taste


  • Slice potato thinly in even slices.
  • Heat up milk and cream, Add the crushed garlic
  • Add salt and pepper to taste
  • Throw in the potato slices and let the mixture simmer.
  • Using a slotted spoon, transfer potatoes to a baking dish,discarding the garlic.
  • Pour over the cream mixture, just enough to seep through the layers. 
  • Bake in a pre heated 190C oven for 30-45 minutes till top is browned.

Serving God is a great privilege, and service to Him must be rendered with excitement and enthusiasm.
