I’ve already told you all about one of my favorite weekly traditions, Girls Night In. This week we made Spaghetti Squash “Pizza.” It was easy and inexpensive. In NYC it is normal to find a box of cereal for $5.50 so it is always wonderful to find a meal that is inexpensive to make (P.S. As any post grad knows, Trader Joe’s : Groceries :: Ikea : Furniture. That’s a SAT flashback right there. Please don’t send me your therapy bills.)
1. 1 Spaghetti Squash
2. 1 ball of Mozzarella (or two if you’re working on your night cheese)*
3. 1 teaspoon olive oil
4. Salt and pepper to taste
5. 1/4 cup tomato sauce
Extra Ingredients If You So Choose:
1. Tofu Pepperoni
+ Whatever toppings your perfect pizza includes!
1. Preheat the oven to 375ºF.
2. Cut the squash in half lengthwise and remove and discard the seed. Place the squash on a baking sheet. Bake until tender (about 1 hour). Separate the strands of squash with a fork and place in a medium bowl. Maintain the oven temperature.
3. Adjust salt and pepper to taste.
4. Pour the tomato sauce on the spaghetti squash.
5. Cut the mozzarella into slices and lay them on top of the spaghetti squash.
6. Bake for 15 minutes (Until the cheese is gooey and delicious – you’ll know it when you see it.)
We watched the 100th Episode of Glee while we cooked and ate. I loved some of the outfits the characters wore! Here are a few of my favorite outfits from the episode (and where you can buy the piece)!
Quinn wore the Kate Spade Cory Dress
Santana wore Parker’s ‘Kaitlyn’ Knit Fit and Flare Dress
April wore BCBG’s Bambi Puckered Jacquard A-Line Dress
This skirt is similar!
I think that Holly wore this Marc Jacobs’ tweed set (minus the adorable jacket)
Quinn wore this 3.1 Phillip Lim Chevron Detail Full Skirt Dress
Now I want to go shopping (which kind of nullifies the statement about buying cheaper groceries but as a wise Pin once told me…)
*I’m working on my night cheese is from a great episode of one of my favorite TV shows, 30 Rock:
**In the Supreme Court case, Jacobellis v. Ohio, Supreme Court justice Potter Stewart said he couldn’t describe or define pornography but stated in his concurring opinion, “I know it when I see it.” I was a Criminal Justice major and a paralegal. I have to throw in these fun facts.
