Spaghetti Squash

This is the easiest dinner you’ll ever make!  Its delicious, healthy and for those on a low carb diet, this is officially going to be your pasta substitute bestie!  I picked up my spaghetti squash from Trader Joe’s (I know, I’m surprised they had it too).  I didn’t get a chance to carve a pumpkin for Halloween so scrapping out the seeds of this squash was as close as I got to making a  jack o lantern this year.  lol.

First step is to cut this sucker in half.  That was the hardest part for me but here’s a tip:  nuke it in the microwave for about 3 -5 mins.  The skin of the melon should soften up a bit and you’ll avoid a bloody accident in the kitchen…*squirms*  Next, drizzle some EVOO (extra virgin olive oil) and sea salt over it.  Pop it in a 350 degree oven for 40 minutes.

Try poking the outer edge of the squash with a fork.  If it’s soft, it’s ready to become spaghetti!  Take a fork and start scrapping off the sides until it starts to look like spaghetti.  Next, I like to top mine off with Newman’s tomato sauce, chopped up Italian sausages or ground beef, and some parmigiano reggiano to finish it off.

Hope you all remembered to set your clocks back one hour.  It sure provided me with some extra beauty sleep (which I totally needed after a week of Halloween festivities.) Today’s look consists of an eye-catching blue and navy striped shift dress, form fitting blazer and a hit of yellow bubbly jewels.  Thanks for stopping by!  Have a fabulous day! =)

Frankly, Wishing You a Happy Halloween!

This year for Halloween I wanted to make something cute and delicious for my students.  When I saw this project, I immediately adapted it to make some for my own class.   It’s essentially the classic rice krispies recipe but you add green food coloring into the marshmallow mixture before adding the rice krispies!  =)  Depending on what size you’d like your squares to be, there are different sizes of clear gift bags that can be found at Walmart, Dollar Stores, and Michaels.  Wishing you a safe and Happy Halloween!!
