Treadmill Run and Spaghetti Squash experiment

Posted Nov 14 2012 12:00am

Tuesday November 13, 2012

Tuesday I ran on the treadmill because I wasn’t feeling the cold weather.  I hit the treadmill after work and ran 3.01 miles in 30minutes.  My body and breathing felt good, but for some reason my feet were hurting?  Couldn’t quite figure that one out. 

When I got home from the treadmill run, I decided to do something with the random FREE squash we received over the weekend from the Apple Orchard!  If you spent $10, you received a free squash!  SCORE! 

I’m not quite sure what kind of squash we got.  I also wasn’t sure how to cook it, or what to make from it. I figured out how to make “spaghetti squash” thanks to google, and thought it was a good idea.  Here’s what I did:

  1. Cut squash the long way.  This took me a good 40 minutes, to the point where I almost threw it across the room..(I have patience, I swear) and about four different knives… 
  2. Set oven to 400 degrees. 
  3. When squash is cut, scoop out guts and seeds. 
  4. Place on a cookie sheet SKIN SIDE UP. 
  5. Pour just enough water over the squash to cover the bottom of the cookie sheet. 
  6. Place in oven and bake squash for about 45minutes
  7. Take squash out of the oven.  Let cool enough so you can touch it.  
  8. Using a fork, and starting at the top, pull the fork ( rake it )through the squash, and into a container/bowl.  Do this for both halves. 

You basically rake it til you just are holding the shell of the squash. I filled a decent size container with both halves! 

The spaghetti squash was a success!  Haha….say that three times fast! ;) 

You can probably add anything for extra seasoning, but I raided the pantry and sprinkled mine with “Tastefully Simple’s Seasoned Salt.”  YUM!!!  

This was very easy to make, and delicious as well!  I’ll be sure to make it again! 

* - This isn’t the only thing I had for dinner. 

Question:

Do you know what kind of squash I had?


Have you ever made spaghetti squash?  If so, what do you top yours with?  Or do you eat it plain?
