How to cook Spaghetti Squash in long strands

Cutting spaghetti squash in one inch coins will allow the strand of the squash to be longer and more spaghetti noodle like.

The seeds can easily be cut out with a knife. Brush with olive oil and salt.

Roast in a 400 degree oven for an hour or until fork tender. The spaghetti strands should start to pull away from the skin.

Add meatballs and marinara for a low carb meal!

Don's Chuck Wagon Golden Mushroom Batter Mix

This mix was only a dollar at Wal Mart, and I just had to try it at that price. It's on the baking aisle.

You first coat the mushrooms in the mix, and then you mix what left with water to make a moist batter similar to pancake batter.

I used a wooden bamboo skewer and poked it into the bottom of the dusted shrooms. From there I dunked them into the batter, and dropped them into hot oil.

They fried up perfect, and were delicious dipped into ranch dressing. I also tried a few pieces of zucchini and they were also great.

Overall a great little mix, that I can see working with lots of veggies!

Fried Patty Pan Squash Breakfast

Patty Pan squash that are big enough, can be sliced into large coins and fried. I started by slicing the squash and salting both sides on a paper towel so that they can drain and release some moisture. This will ensure a crispier fry and the squash will hold together better.

Next, take each coin and coat it with a mixture of flour, corn meal, Parmesan cheese, and salt and pepper. Fry each coin in hot vegetable oil until golden brown.

These are great for breakfast served alongside fried eggs and bacon!

Greek Yogurt and Berries

Strawberry Greek Yogurt Pudding with Berries! Royal pudding brand has these new flavors with Greek a Yogurt mixed in and this one is the strawberry. Takes two cups of cold milk and two minutes of mixing. One box is enough for two servings. I separated the pudding into decorative glasses and topped with raspberries and blueberries. However, you could change the Greek Yogurt Pudding from Royal brand flavor or you could mix up the fruit. Bananas could be delicious!
