I told the roomie that I was disappointed I had not gotten spaghetti squash with my farm share...so she bought me one. I have NEVER seen one this big!
So what does one do with a squash the size of a rugby ball? SHARE! No, here is one of the things I made:
1 spaghetti squash, halved lengthwise and seeded
2 Tbl olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 ½ cups chopped tomatoes
¾ cup crumbled feta cheese
2 Tbl chopped fresh basil
Place spaghetti squash cut sides down on a lightly greased baking sheet and bake 30 minutes in a 350 degree oven, or until a sharp knife can be inserted with only a little resistance. Remove squash from oven, and set aside to cool enough to be easily handled.
Meanwhile, heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Saunte onion in oil until tender. Add garlic, and sauté for 2-3 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes, and cook only until tomatoes are warm.
Use a large spoon to scoop the stringy pulp from the squash, and place in a medium bowl. Toss with the sautéed vegetables, feta cheese, and basil. Serve warm.

For some today is a day to celebrate because it is the start of college football. Not for me, I have no team loyalty (thank you XU!). For me today is a day to celebrate because it's J-nette's b-day! Twenty some years ago today she became the final female in our house! While J was often the sneaky one in our house - she has become one of the most thoughtful and caring women I know. It has been a pleasure watching her grow up - watching her find what God has created her to be. I am constantly challenged by compassion for others. May this year be filled with new challenges and greater blessings. Love you bill!
