The wife (the Chef) found a really interesting recipe tonight. She doesn't cook often (at home), but when she does it's EXCELLENT!! God Bless her!!

So tonight we're having a pumpkin infused Marinara sauce with some home made turkey meatballs (also with pure pumpkin). Served over spaghetti squash. Haven't eaten any of it yet, but I tasted the sauce and it's wonderful! Tastes like fall.

My back is hurting so bad tonight, I can barely move. I changed the oil in the cars and the big tractor today. Have to haul hay tomorrow. I'm really glad the wife is cooking dinner tonight. Home made meatballs (turkey)...YAY!! (not a big fan of turkey, it's tasteless IMO), but anyway. She's a really good cook, so I'm staying out of the kitchen, crippled as I am.

Veggie dinner tonight, but it's all good!!

Youre lucky! My wife hands down...isnt the best. I am. She has a hard time frying-water.*

*And she keeps wondering what the tv channels wont change when she's aiming the garage door opener at it...bless her heart.

Her cooking? A couple things...but...no.

Sounds delicious, making me hungry just reading about it. Nothing like having a hot home cooked meal after a rough day.

She's definitely a keeper bud.

It's a type of squash that you prepare by boiling and when it's done and you crack it open, the insides come out just like spaghetti noodles. It's a pretty passable substitute for actual pasta since the innards don't really have a strong, distinct taste of their own and the texture really isn't a whole lot different than whole wheat pasta or al dente regular pasta.

Sounds not too bad at all!

I'd send you the lime coconut cheesecake we got done having for the kiddo's birthday, but we ended up eating most of it.

But the two together sounds like they'd make a sensational one-two KO by candlelight.

Ah, seasonal cooking, I love it. Autumn sweets baking season has kicked in already, and we're transitioning meals now too.

I was the super-cook of the house, but now with my work schedule and her home with the kids, she's become quite the chef over the last few years. I still make the occasional "Holy String of Swear Words This is Amazing" meal about once a month, but her skills are right there - and more often.

More importantly, she's always been a much better baker. Just made the most amazing cookies I've ever eaten (ginger snaps) with a ridiculous pie next on the menu.

As the temperature cools down... I'm going to need to exercise more. And daily shots of olive oil to keep the cholesterol levels right.

That's kinda a cool idea. My girlfriend is vegan and I'm running out of ideas. Have to tweak it a little but it sounds like a neat meal thanks!

A good description, although I might differ on the "pretty passable" part.
I eat it, but I prefer pasta.

I don't boil. I split, cover in oil or bacon fat, and roast on 350 with the cut side down.

about 25 minutes later you can take a fork to it and break the noodles apart.

I roast them, but always did them whole and split them afterward.
I roasted them at 350 for 40 minutes.

We don't do it very often, but we might try that next time. I prefer most things roasted.

Like the poster above, I prefer the real thing. It's the husband who likes spaghetti squash strangely, and he's the one who nearly always insists on meat with every meal.

I split mine as well but I like to put some sprigs of fresh herbs inside before I put them cut side down.

As I've noted, I'm not a big fan of ground turkey. It's pretty much tasteless, but her sauce she did with the marinara and pumpkin was off the charts GOOD!!!

So there was a fair amount of sauce left over last night. I saved it all. Tonight we're having straight up pasta, with straight up meat balls. (more traditional pasta, with a hint of pumpkin). Awesome!!!

I'm looking forward to it!!!
