I’m sure you’re still on Thanksgiving leftovers overload and completely out of ideas on what to do with them. Never fear, I’ve got a unique little idea for you.
A Thanksgiving Leftovers Spaghetti Squash Delight! Thanksgiving - it just keeps on "giving."
Here’s a preview, but to get to the recipe, in typical Sometimes Healthy fashion, you’ll have to endure a bit of the backstory. Continue reading
It’s fair to say NYC is worlds away from NE – not just in distance, but in the lifestyle. For example, when my best friend, Becca, was lamenting to me about having to get gas before work on a Monday, I equated it to having to wait in line to fill up my Metrocard pass on a Monday morning before getting on the subway (The line’s always extra long on Monday because everyone seems to have missed the boat on getting their s*** together to fill the pass over the weekend when the crowd is much lighter).
I forgot all about "the good life"
Anyway, I usually try to get back to The Big O at least every 6 months, but this time around, it’s been almost 8. Thus, I am out-of-practice with living the Nebraska life aka “the good life.”
Here’s a couple of things I completely forgot about: Continue reading
Bring on the vegetables, baby!
Happy Happy Friday night! I’m spending my rockin’ Friday night “vegging up” and “vegging out.” Why? Because tomorrow night, it’s my annual New York birthday fiesta (my birthday is Thursday but I have a busy work week and zero time to celebrate). This will be my third birthday in NYC, and I plan on celebrating it the exact same way I celebrated the first two: Continue reading
Sunday Grocery Run: Notice the spaghetti squash trying to hide from me!
This past Sunday, I was a very ambitious little Sometimes Healthy girl. I planned out ALL of my meals for the week and set a budget for grocery shopping that would hopefully ensure I stayed on track for the Budget Diet all week. If you think that I stuck to the plan, then you clearly don’t me that well yet. Don’t worry – you’ll figure it our soon enough. Anyway, I’ll recap my meal prep and shopping spree in a later post about lessons learned on the budget diet thus far. But for now, let’s talk spaghetti squash! I bought it along with my other groceries on Sunday and couldn’t wait to get a little creative with my fave yellow vegetable that looks like a volleyball. As you recall, I had always been very intimidated by the spag squash, but a few weeks ago (girl vs. spaghetti squash round 1) I finally gave it a shot. And it was mmm mmm good.
This time around, the squash was HUGE. I had to attack it with the knife, to ensure it had lots of room to breathe while cooking in the microwave. Continue reading
As alluded to in my post earlier today, I will now share the recipe that was both my dinner last night AND my breakfast this morning Didn’t it look delish? (maybe not but it obviously tasted good enough to entice me to eat it twice in 8 hours)….
A dinner so good, I ate it for breakfast too!
For the past few days, I’ve opened my fridge and seen a giant spaghetti squash glaring back at me. I have been meaning to do something with this ugly yellow vegetable for the longest time, but I’m just too unambitious by the time I walk in the door from a long day at work. Plus – I hate trying to cut foods that have a hard shell. I’m worried the knife will slip and disaster will strike.
Last night, I finally decided to bite the bullet. I figured if I was going to attack this beastly vegetable, I’d make it worthwhile and create a Spaghetti Squash Casserole. Continue reading
