Hump Day is almost ovaaah! I started the day dashing out the door heading to work, which started at 545am- 830am. I did not brush my teeth, comb my hair (not that it matters), or eat breakfast. By the time I was heading home at the end of my shift, I was starving and stinky. Oh how I wanted to brush my teeth badly :o( With no oatmeal and eggs to be found around the house and the lack of will to spend money on breakfast...I had left overs from last night.
Last night I wanted dinner. I had two choices: A) Buy ingredients and whip something up or B) Go to the taco shop and buy a burrito!
I knew I'd regret the bloat and uncomfortable fullness if I went with the taco shop option, so grocery shopping it is!
I went to the market not knowing what I wanted, I started out in the meat section and it was a choice between chicken and turkey. "I've had chicken plenty of times, waaaay to many times. Let's take a break from that tonight. oh! the turkey is cheaper!"
Then it was produce: Yellow onion, brocolli, summer squash, and jalapeno.
Then it hit me that I should make... spaghetti. Not just regular ole' spaghetti, but spaghetti with copious amounts of veggies that you can imagine. I remembered my mom had one last jar of pasta sauce. cha-ching. But I had a hard time finding noodles, because the cheapest one was $3.29! hell to the nah. Plus I didn't want too much carbs at night, so I went to the check-out lane noodle-less.
Then it hit me...Spaghetti Squash. Why is it that the light bulb always turn on towards the end?
