Spaghetti Squash- My favourite new vegetable!

 looks like this in the grocery store.

buy it!

Prick it all over- microwave for 3 minutes. Rest for 5.

Cut it open and bake for an hour. Just by itself. No butter needed.

Then shred it out with a fork and you have the MOST amazing subsitution for the spaghetti noodle.

 I love it so much, that I PREFER the squash version over the real pasta.

Heck! You don't even need to dirty a bowl...this is cute.

 You can do ALL sorts of fun stuff with Spaghetti squash....casseroles, side dishes, vegetable dishes, etc...

anything that normally involves a pasta...use SPAGHETTI SQUASH! instead. Yum!

My NEW Love!.. Halloumi Cheese...

Oh my gosh. Just buy it and try it!

It is a unique cheese that can be grilled, and not melt away to nothing.  It is tangy, salty, chewy, 100% YUMMY!

From Cyprus- from goats or sheep milk. Very similar to Saganaki.

Try making shish kabobs with it....

 OR put it on the grill straight up

on top of a  salad

 appetizer entree

 you name it!  Just enjoy it!
