Vampires suck

It seriously smells like garlic in my house tonight!!  I made some more Spaghetti Squash with that amazing Bove’s Basil Sauce (disclaimer – there is a mistake as of the date of this blog on the Bove’s website and Mark Bove is working to get it fixed.  There is NO cheese in the Basil sauce.  It is PALEO Friendly) with extra veggies and chicken sausage, but I had a real craving for garlic bread, so I went a-Googling and came across these garlic balls and figured it was worth a try.  OMG.  It’s a really good thing my mom isn’t here tonight because these things are potent and she hates garlic, I mean HATES.  We think she’s part Vampire, but we still love her.  I also made sausage meatballs.  We had balls.  he he he…

Don’t you worry, I had 2 helpings.  Those balls were AMAZEBALLS!

Wanna hear something funny?  Big Dude was like, “what about vegetables?”  PFFT!!!

I’m sorry, did you say squash?

When I was about 8 years old my mom made squash for dinner. I didn’t want to eat it, but there were starving children in Africa and I had to clean my plate if I wanted any dessert. So I choked it down. Literally. After I swallowed the last bite, I sang out, “clean plate club!!” Triumphant and ready for dessert, but my ever wise older brother said, “Not for long…” And then I vomited it all back up and onto my previously clean plate.
I really haven’t eaten squash or any other cooked orange vegetable since. So when I keep hearing about spaghetti squash on all the Paleo blogs, I figured, what’s the worst that could happen? I throw up on my plate!? Ha! Wouldn’t be the first time!! So I slathered my spaghetti squash with Ghee and put it in the oven to bake. Then I pulled out my favorite marinara, Bove’s of Vermont Basil

Chopped up some peppers, onions and garlic and set them to simmer while the squash did its thing.
I’m so happy to tell you I didn’t throw up! But I’m so sorry I forgot to take a photo because it smelled so good I couldn’t wait to dig into it and the my plate was a mess and I can’t post messy photos, only messy stories! Next time!
