Things I am thinking about today...
- One night this week, I made spaghetti squash for dinner. I have always wanted try it, but was unsure how to make it properly or thought it would be difficult. After some research on Google, I decided to prepare it by cutting it in half, scooping out the seeds and pulp and then roasting it in the oven. After about 45 minutes, the squash was soft enough to scoop out the "spaghetti" with a fork. With a little olive oil, parmesan cheese, and chopped tomatoes, it was delicious. The texture is reminiscent of pasta, but for me, it so much healthier, because pasta can spike my blood sugar. Usually, a diabetic should only eat 1 cup of pasta, but I ate twice that amount of the spaghetti squash, with no problem when I measured my blood sugar, later that evening. It is always nice to find something new that I can have, and that also tastes great.
- I haven't had much to say about reality tv lately, but this week a few things caught my interest. First, on the Real Housewives of New York, I have been perplexed by Aviva and her need to judge and berate the other women. It has always been a mystery to me why some people feel the need to judge others, when the behavior in question has no bearing on their life what so ever. I am sure we all have had contact with people like that. I always feel that kind of attitude stems from that person's unhappiness with their life.
- Dancing With the Stars started Monday and while I wasn't sure about the All Star season, I feel it may turn out to be a good one. The judges seem to be holding the stars to a higher standard, since they all are experienced dancers at this point. There is some good chemistry between the pairs too. I'm not sure who my favorite is yet, because I like so many of them :-)
- After posting this photo of my mostly dead, perenial garden, I was struck by the lack of color. I started wondering what I could plant to give the garden some blooms in the fall. I found some ideas in red, yellow and orange tones, which would be lovely in a fall garden. Any other suggestions?
GaillardiaHave a wonderful Thursday :-)
