I was going to my boyfriend’s uncle’s house this weekend, with his mother and him to visit. I knew his mother was making homemade sauce and meatballs and since I didn’t want to tote along a measuring cup (because I visually can’t judge what a cup of pasta looks like), I decided to bring spaghetti squash to share with everyone.I like bringing healthier alternatives to the table, regardless of where I am, and this was a perfect opportunity.
I had baked my spaghetti squash (seasoned with salt and pepper) the afternoon prior, shredded it and put it into the refrigerator.I was quite pleased with how my spaghetti squash turned out because the last few I have made came out very wet. This one was perfect and reminiscent of al dente pasta.The squash itself tastes like squash, but it does adapt to the flavors it’s paired with and due to it’s spaghetti like characteristics it makes for easy twirling on a fork.
At my boyfriends uncles we ended up having a late lunch. I had a helping of spaghetti squash, a ladle of homemade sauce and one meatball. I also had a small helping of garlic bread. It was a perfect meal – delicious, satisfying and I honestly didn’t miss the pasta.And to think I was a little afraid of trying spaghetti squash with pasta sauce … now I’m a huge fan. So much of a fan I had spaghetti squash with pasta sauce for lunch the next day!
Do you like incorporating spaghetti squash into meals?
These Lay’s Cheesy Garlic Bread potato chips are one of the last limited edition flavors offered by Lays as part of their “Vote to Save your Fave” campaign which originally began by regular potato chip lovers to submit a flavor of potato chip that they’d love were on the market. I purchased all 3 bags (Sriracha, Chicken and Waffles and Cheesy Garlic Bread). I opened the Sriracha first, then the Chicken and Waffles and saved the Cheesy Garlic Bread for last because I had high hopes. But unfortunately it wasn’t as spectacular as I had dreamed it up in my mind. I LOVE cheese and I absolutely love garlic (I put it in everything). Unfortunately the flavor was a bit subdued for my liking.It wasn’t as cheesy or as garlicy as I would have imagined it would be. It tastes decent, but it’s not as power packing as I had wished for. The cheesy eliminate takes a bit of a backseat while the garlic is evident, but it’s not a bold garlic – it’s a very mild flavor on your palette. They are good – but I think the Sriracha flavor is ultimately the BEST and I hope it wins because I’d like to have those as a side to a plain jane sandwich any day!
Points Plus wise a serving will cost you 4 PPV.
