Squashin’ good.

Woahh!  Did everyone’s Word Press change or just mine!?  I went to make this blog and I got all confused by the changes.  Or maybe it is just that I just finished 11 hours at work!? Is that even legal?
I picked up another spaghetti squash because I love how versatile  they are.  And I was craving pesto.  And my Mom brought home a huge bunch of basil from  my Grandfather’s garden.

So spaghetti squash with pesto it was!  It was pretty darn easy to make this.  Last time I made spaghetti squash I roasted it in the oven but this time I simply poked some holes in the squash and microwaved it and -voila!

The pesto was pretty easy too!

•2 cups basil
•1/2 cup olive oil
•1 clove of garlic
•a couple shakes of Parmesan cheese
Mix it all in the food processor and you get delicious-ness!
I topped my pesto spaghetti with zucchini and some Trader Joe’s chicken meatballs.  Mmmm!  Tons of veggies and tons of flavor.

Now excuse me while I go flop into my bed.  My goal is to be in bed by 9.  I’m pretty sure that can be accomplished…zzz

Spinach salad.

Ever since I had a salad called the Food Pyramid at the Couch Tomato, I have been craving it!

It includes: spinach, strawberries, grilled chicken, pecans and mozzarella cheese.  I dipped with some undocumented creamy balsamic dressing.

I’m kinda bummed that these pictures came out so weird!

I think all the nutrition from lunch should help me make it through my 11 hour work day – yikes!

Just like the real thing.

Morning!

Thankfully I prepared my breakfast last night because I am awake early on Mondays but not really mentally awake until a few hours later.

I’ve always been a sucker for breakfast sandwiches.  Whenever I have the opportunity to order one I always really really want to.  But I know dangerous they can be so I usually try to refrain.  So I came up with another rendition of a breakfast sandwich I would love to just order! Sausage on a biscuit.  No, there is no egg.  Eggs just creep me out.  And I had some delicious ripe strawberries on the side.

I used Pillsbury country style biscuits and Light Life’s sausage which has amazing nutritional info!

For 2 oz. of sausage there are:

•60 calories

•0g fat

•7g protein

•3g fiber

So much better than eating actual sausage and it tastes like the real thing!

I was definitely happy with my breakfast :)
