Wait… It’s not Spaghetti?

That’s right… and it’s not worms (which can sometimes be confused for spaghetti…).  It’s squash! Spaghetti squash. Have you tried it before? I was my first time last night (that’s what she said).

Last week I saw Spaghetti Squash for the first time at my local grocery store. Is it a seasonal thing? Because I had checked over the summer and they didn’t have it. Anyways, you get all the great flavor of spaghetti without the calories!

Check out my beautiful squash:

There are a lot of ways to cook it but I decided to follow the instructions that came with him.

So I cut him in half and gutted the seeds, then baked him for 45 min at 350 F.  Here’s him out of the oven.

Then I took a fork and scraped out his stringy pulp. There’s obviously a lot more than what’s in my bowl, this is just my serving.

I heated up some veggies: more squash, green pepper, kale, and cucumber. Then added in some sauce, got it all nice and warm and then poured it over my spaghetti squash. Yummy!

It was full over flavor and very filling!  And it was all veggies!

Daniel approved of the dish so I think this is a keeper, as long as those grocery stores keep it in stock!

I went a little over calories again, and I didn’t work out.  I was so focused on studying! However, I think my test went well!

Now I can enjoy my weekend.  I plan to catch up on a lot like: finally finishing the staining of the 4th chair from our dining set, washing my car, looking up companies for internships, catching up on other homework, reading my bloglovin (I have almost 200 blog posts I need to catch up on! I think I follow too many blogs haha), and getting more sleep!

What are your weekend plans?!
