Spicy squash

Tonight's Menu

  • tilapia and spaghetti squash with Moroccan spices
  • giant green salad
This was way yummy and fairly easy.

I followed this recipe on Epicurious for the spaghetti squash, except that I halved my squash lengthwise and cooked it cut-side down in the oven rather than in the microwave. The oven caramelizes the sugars in a way that that the microwave doesn't, and I like the added flavor. It's way quicker to do it in the microwave, though, so you do whatever.

I made the spiced butter in a heavy skillet and then, after pouring it all over the squash and tossing to coat, stuck my tilapia fillets in the same skillet to cook them. They picked up some of the spice and were SO good! The boy child had two helpings!

Oh my GOD does that sound good.

It snowed last night, so the woodstove is percolating away. I got all 'Pioneer Woman, Citizen Of The North' up here and have a foil bundle of buttercup squash cooking on the top. If this works, we'll have squash pie tonight.
