Hi lovelies! Sorry for my absence yesterday! As I’ve mentioned, things are really busy for me right now, but I think they will be back to normal next week! I hope that you all are having a great week so far and we’re already half way to the weekend! Unfortunately, here in San Francisco, we are experiencing some very dreary, rainy weather! Our Indian summer didn’t last too long, but I’m hoping it clears up by this weekend because it is Fleet Week in San Francisco (more on that tomorrow).
So the other night, I felt inspired by some lovely bloggers and decided to make a spaghetti squash for dinner! I tweeted about how much I was enjoying the squash the next day, but I didn’t tell you about the arduous process I went through to make it. I bought the squash from Trader Joe’s and came home full of excitement for a new squash to add to my squash obsession. Armed with the directions in hand (via iphone of course) I set upon the first direction: cut the squash in half. I tried and I tried and I tried. Though I didn’t take a picture of me trying to cut the squash, this is probably the face I was making…
But no matter what I did, I could not seem to get through that thick outer layer of the squash. Since my parents didn’t want to see me get hurt, they stepped in and brought out the big guns…
Yes, that is a saw. A real saw had to be used to cut my spaghetti squash in half. Are you starting to understand the title of this post now? But after that, it was smooth sailing! I used Nicole’s method and made it in the microwave in a shallow dish with hot water and it came out perfectly! I think I should have cooked the first side a tad longer (I was impatient) but the second was perfect and tender! I generously poured on TJ’s marinera sauce and parmasean cheese and sat down to an amazing meal.
-How in the world do you cut a spahetti squash? Please teach me your ways!
-Have you ever faced any battles in the kitchen? (For the record, I totally won mine ;))
