Tragedy

I was all set to have a super tasty dinner of Morningstar fake chicken, sun dried tomatoes, artichoke hearts, green garlic and roasted asparagus all sauteed up together and served over spaghetti squash. I cooked my spaghetti squash whole, as I am not to be trusted with knives and hard to cut produce such as squash. I took my perfectly baked squash out of the oven and cut it up, only to find it was all sprouted inside. And then, I tasted some and it was sooooo bitter. Gross. So I had to have my topping just in a bowl with nothing to put it over. It was tasty, but would have been better with the squash. That is my dinner tragedy.

Oh, alas for the squashless!

I wish I could send you some of the mashed potatoes that form the base of my dinner this evening -- farmer's market glory.

I can never manage to cut my spaghetti squash in half to roast it properly, and always end up delegating that job to my husband, who is a big muscly carpenter. Even he struggles sometimes and has suggested the use of a table saw.
