Ok, so these first pictures were actually taken on March 10, but I just forgot to blog about them, so I'm doing it now. Being inspired by The Biggest Loser, we decided we would try and make spaghetti squash. They talk about it all the time on the show; we're never inspired to workout after watching, but we are inspired to cook. We bought a squash, we watched youtube videos on how to cook it, and we went to work.
First, you cut the squash in half lengthwise. This is definitely the hardest part. These things are thick and dense and very difficult to cut.
Then you place the two halves inside part down on a foil lined baking sheet.
Cook for about an hour on 375.
Pull them out of the oven and let cool for about 30 minutes.
Then go around the edges and pull the fruit out just tad.
Once you've gone all the way around you can just start scooping it out. It's really so so cool.
One of the videos we watched said you can just put it in a bowl with some butter and toss with Parmesan cheese. I'm sure this would be delicious, but we topped it with homemade marina sauce. I was beyond shocked at how it tasted exactly like spaghetti noodles, right down to the texture. We will definitely be making it again.
Ok. So now onto March 13. Nothing too exciting happened today, and by the time 9:00 rolled around I realized I still hadn't taken a daily picture to blog about. Brad decided he needed to feel a little smarter while studying, so he put on these fake glasses we love to play with. They definitely helped boost our studying power. Even Killer felt a little smarter.
