Recipe: Baked Spaghetti Squash



Here’s another recipe compliments of Troy, our lead installer. He brought the dish to our cabin last weekend to share. I served it along with some Lemon Caper chicken, seasoned rice, and some Chardonnay. It turned out to be a wonderful combination.

Baked Spaghetti Squash

2 Spaghetti Squash (halved)
2 cloves fresh garlic
Taragon to taste
Basil to taste
4 pats of butter (approximately 1/4 cup)
salt to taste
pepper to taste

Cut squash in half length wise. Place the squash in a baking dish filled with a 1/4″ water placing the cut side down. Bake for 45 minutes at 375 degrees. Remove the pan from the oven and let the squash cool a bit.  Take the squash out of the rind with a fork and place in a bowl. Spray a 13 x 9 baking dish with Pam cooking spray. Spread the squash in the pan. Mix in the garlic, taragon, and basil. Season with garlic salt and pepper to taste. Place 4 pats of butter and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake for an additional 20  minutes at 350 degrees.

Enjoy!

Get Out And Walk!



I don’t know about you, but I am an avid walker. It is something that I really enjoy, and it always seems to help clear my head, especially after a busy day at work. While everyone knows that they should get some form of exercise everyday, not everyone has a membership at a gym, or club. Walking is something that doesn’t require any equipment, or membership fees, and can be done just about anywhere. Walking not only is good for the body, but helps ease the mind.

I recently read, “Walking Techniques For Your Mind And Body,” an article found on the Better Homes and Gardens website that stated that, “Confucius advised people to go for long walks without time, destination, or expectations in mind,” according to Tom Brown Jr., founder of Tracker School. By doing so, it allows you to discover surprises along the way.

Walking is also a great way help get your daily dose of vitamin D. Go ahead, enjoy a little sunshine on your face, or skin, but make sure to remember your sunscreen.

If you need a little boost to get you started walking, you might be interested starting out with friend, setting up some sort of a routine, or joining a walking program.

Thanks for reading and happy walking!
