Okay, fine. Apparently I do like Spaghetti Squash.

Tonight was one of those nights where I was feeling super lazy and didn’t want to cook. I played tennis again this afternoon (it was soooo gorgeous out… had to take advantage!!) with my friend, so by the time I got home and showered, it was time to eat.

I stared at the open fridge for awhile, finally deciding to give the rest of my spaghetti squash from the other night a try! This time, it was a win. Simple, easy, and tasty. I’ve decided the key is to have it as a side dish, not as a main course subbing for pasta.


I topped it with a drizzle of olive oil, a little cracked pepper, and some grated parmesan cheese. Deeeeeeeeeelish!

Nom, nom, nom. (this makes me giggle)


With it, I had a salad with sliced beets (SO OBSESSED!!!!) and cucumber topped with balsamic vinaigrette…



…and some gouda (mmm love) with these tasty crackers my mom and I picked up at Whole Foods while she was visiting.


They are SUPER crunchy and that makes me happy, plus it’s perfect for annoying anyone else near you while you’re eating them. ;) Great ingredients list, too!

Aren’t totally random dinners the best? Sometimes they’re just necessary :)

Alrighty, I’m off to work on my UNC application — gah! It’s due December 1st. I’ve got everything done… except for the dreaded personal statement. Why are these darn things so freaking hard to write?!?!

Have a great night, everyone! And thanks for your sweet comments about my new layout :) Don’t forget to update your Google Readers!

    Anne, I’m very serious about the hot tomato garlic compote on the spaghetti squash! Give it a try during your next random dinner! :) And, more importantly, good luck with your application! pdb

    I enjoy reading your blog and added you to the blog roll on my new blog. Is that okay? I’m new to all this and don’t know proper blogging etiquette! I’m originally from Northern Virginia (now in Philly) and have the same “Virginia is for Runners” shirt as you :) I too was in the process of applying to grad school to become an R.D. when my current job opportunity came along. Good luck with it!

    Thanks for adding me to your blogroll! No need to ask, at least for me! VA is the best ;) – Anne
