Everyone in health blogosphere has been making spaghetti squash. It’s ridiculous. I feel like I am missing out on something. So, I finally picked one up at the grocery store. It looks like a narrow yellow pumpkin!
I think I was missing out. I thought it came out great! Mmm cheese on top too. It’s a tasty alternative to using pasta, but the texture is a little more crunchy. My boyfriend did have to say, “it kind of makes me want to vomit like the first time I tried quinoa”. Just great. He would say that. I thought it was perfect, but my palate may be more health food friendly. And then Mr. Triathlete says, “you cook spaghetti squash–how am I supposed to get all my servings of grains? I’ll just have to drink more alcohol to make up for it”. No, that is not how it’s supposed to be, genius.

Update: The boyfriend says I made him sound like a jerk. Please note: he is not a jerk. He has the best attitude of anyone I know, and just tends to make some snarky comments.
