Seasonal

Hey there!

I recently bought and cooked two seasonal food items. Huzzah! Both of them came from a wee little fruit stand about 1 minute from campus.

First up: Spaghetti squashI cut the squash in half and cooked one side. I brushed it with olive oil, sprinkled it with salt and pepper, and microwaved it (lazy) for about 7 minutes in 1/4 cup of water. I scraped the squash out with a fork and topped it with spaghetti sauce. My thoughts: I wish I would have roasted it!

Up next: PumpkinI bought a pie pumpkin, peeled and cut it, and roasted it for 45 minutes at 375* with olive oil, salt, and cinnamon. My thoughts: It was amazing.

Other random things:

I was working on a school project that required me to include some old pictures. I asked my mom to help me find some and she found this gem…..I actually blended in with the wall. Don’t ask me why I was wearing a cow sweatsuit (I’m lactose intolerant LOL) that says “I’m udderly adorable.” Oh my.

Pittsburgh has some of the craziest weather. Yesterday it was in the 80’s and I actually saw snow in the forecast for next week. What?!

  1. That’s a pretty cute sweatsuit… udderly adorable.. haha. Neat that you found and shared that old picture with us, though :). The spaghetti squash looks tasty, I haven’t ever had it but I think I might try it one day instead of pasta.

  2. LOL at Amy’s comment. UM, I love that photo of you though seriously. You are such an amazing cook and now that you have a squash (my favorite), I’m inviting you to my house for cooking parties…I’ll make pancake…you can make the race.

  3. I’ve been wanting to try spaghetti squash! Is roasting it the best way to eat it do you think? That picture of you in the cow costume is so cute. You look like a little porcelain doll! And that weater is crazy. My dad was telling me how Pittsburgh is going to get hit with some nasty weather this week because of a storm (I think they’re calling it Frankenstorm haha). Sounds like a perfect excuse to stay warm and cozy inside 🙂

    Have a great week, Allie!
