Day 67- Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

Today you probably already know that i made spaghetti squash !!!!!!! i love this stuff !
Well a lot of people probably like it to, so you might like it to, but that is up to you.
This is how you make it. You need three garlic cloves, spaghetti squash, olive oil
thyme, ham, and pepper.

This was maybe the 3rd or 4th time we've had spaghetti squash. The recipe says to cook the squash in the oven, but we didn't have time to do it that way. The way my mom learned is to clean out he seeds, drizzle olive oil or butter (we used olive oil), cover with plastic wrap, and cook in the microwave for 10 minutes. In the recipe, you are supposed to use the oven and it take 35 minutes.

First I had to clean out the seeds. It was hard.

After it's cooked, I scraped all the actual squash part out of the shell. This is really hard to do when it's hot because you can't pick it up. I pressed too hard at one part and the shell broke and that's not something you want to happen at all.

When the squash is scraped out, it looks like spaghetti. It's yellow and in strips. Spaghetti is a grain, so it's almost the same, except the texture is different, but that's basically all.

My brother Sam described it as sort of crunchy and you can taste the grains, sort of. He is not a a fan of spaghetti squash.

You mix the squash with the shredded parmesan, garlic, cooked ham, pepper, and thyme.

Then put it back into the shells, and bake it for about 15 minutes. This makes the cheese melt and it all gets gooey and delicious. It would also be good if you didn't bake it again. I just think it wouldn't be so melty.

Oh! Today I used this garlic dealy-mbob from Pampered Chef. You take it and put the garlic cloves in it, you roll it around, and it takes the garlic wrapper off. It was super easy and cool.

I give this 1 1/2 THUMBS UP because it was kind of a lot of flavors colliding for moi. Maybe there was too much parmesan. Not sure. But my papa, on the other hand, said, "I love this! It's so yummy!" He liked it best of all the times we've made spaghetti squash.
