We actually got out of school an hour early, as I'm sure some of you did, and I came home to watch the last 10 minutes of Ellen and the saddest Oprah show I think I've ever seen. Then, I cooked some shrimpies (pre-butterflied!) on my George Foreman grill (just to see how it would work versus a grill pan-since I don't have one of those...). I made that yummy shrimp salad again (recipe posted here!). Go here to see my pictures of it's amazingness. Jimmy got a turkey version this time. :-) Not too shabby:
While working on my shrimp, I decided to finally cook the spaghetti squash (per Beth's instructions from our cooking date) and it was equally fascinating. It just comes out in strings! If you've never cooked a spaghetti squash before, here's what I did.
|Step 1: Cut it in half.|
Step 2: Put each half in microwave for about 10 minutes.
(Sorry, no picture! Imagine it...)
|Step 3: Use a fork to shred the inside.|
|Step 4: Dump insides into a casserole dish.|
|Step 5: Add sauce and cheese and then bake til gooey.|
Step 6: Enjoy! :-)
All in all, I think I'd make the spaghetti squash again. I made kind of a creamy sauce to put on top of it and spiced it up with garlic salt and pepper. Jim really liked it, but I think I prefer regular squash just steamed up. Crazy, right? Who doesn't like saucy, cheesy goodness!?
