Admittedly, some are funnier than others, but I laughed out loud several times while watching this compilation of David Lopez’ 2015 videos. My favorite is just after 3:37. How did I not know about David Lopez before this?!?
Favorite kitchen moment
In the endless quest to keep our meals new and varied, I tried three new recipes this week. A spaghetti squash “pasta” primavera, a Greek-style pork dish with spinach and cherry tomatoes, and cauliflower “potato” salad. Even though two of the recipes were very poorly written, I’d call everything a success. Despite multiple meal victories (and some emotional moments), my favorite kitchen moment wasn’t actually a finished dish, it was the perfect roasting of spaghetti squash.
I’d never roasted spaghetti squash before, so I did a lot of research (Googling) and blended what I found. Luckily, it was absolutely perfect. PERFECT. How often does that happen the first time you try cooking something new?
How to roast spaghetti squash
Preheat oven to 450°. Cut spaghetti squash in half lengthwise. Scoop out seeds and central tendrils.
Drizzle olive oil over the open halves. Rub into all exposed flesh.
Cover baking sheet with tin/aluminum foil. Place squash halves – flesh side down – on foil.
Bake for 30 minutes.
Remove from oven. Allow rind to cool enough to handle. Scoop squash with large spoon.
Flesh should easily slide out and separate into strings naturally.
“Your stats are booming!”
My WordPress app sent this notification repeatedly on Sunday and Monday. The reason? The Jeans & a Tank Top Bachelor Bracket. I had no idea how popular it would be, and I’m THRILLED that so many people are playing along and using my little ol’ bracket. I’m also seeing a lot of love for the Bachelor Episode 1 Recap. Just like last season of the Bachelorette, I’ll be recapping every episode, so don’t forget to come back and check those out! (Make it easy on yourself, follow me on Bloglovin’ or Google+ so you never miss a recap!)
