Since I discovered that I like spaghetti squash, I thought to myself, “there is a whole world of other winter squashes – you’ll probably like them all!”
But all squash are not created equal! I picked this one up at the store:
It was called a “golden nugget.” It had a website on the sticker to check out recipes. Well, when I got home and went on the website, there were no particular instruction for this type of squash, so I cooked it in my microwave for 5 minutes. When it was done cooking it looked like this:
It kind of looked like spaghetti squash, but it was really mushy. And I didn’t like the taste by itself. So I went back to the website, and picked an acorn/apple recipe. I cooked 1/2 golden delicious apple in the microwave for 4 minutes, and mixed it with the cooked squash, and sprinkled with cinnamon and a smidge of butter. The result?
So if anyone has any other ideas on how to cook this, I am all ears!
- 1 english muffin, toasted
- 4 ounce 93% lean ground beef burger
- 1 slice vermont cheddar cheese
- handful of spinach
- 1.5 ounces oven fries
- LOTS OF MUSTARD! (It’s buried under spinach!)
It was interesting because my blood sugar was low ALL DAY. I did do a lot of moving of boxes at work today, so I wasn’t just sitting at my desk all day. Who knows? My average today was around 85.
