    Put the whole squash in the oven, bake untill outside is fork tender. Remove, turn oven off, cut squash in half. The insides look like spaghetti. Rake it out with a fork, add some salt, pepper, and butter to taste! Enjoy!

    Tonight we had steamed vegies, roasted new patatoes, and a boneless pork roast. Should have taken pictures, but was to hungry to think about pics.

    Took one bag of dried red kidney beans and some Italian sausages and made a batch of red beans with brown rice. Topped it with green onions.

    If you bake it whole (This is the longer baking method), be sure to prick the skin all over to allow the steam escape so it does not blow up in the oven. I bake mine a little differently by cutting the squash in half lengthwise, scraping out the seeds and membrane, then baking at 375F for 45 minutes or until dragging a fork across pulls the flesh away like strands of spaghetti. Same seasoning with S&P, butter and I add some brown sugar to taste. I check mine, especially smaller ones less than 2#, at about 35-40 minutes to see if they are ready. If you bake it too long the flesh will become just like regular squash...mushy like mashed taters. It tastes fine, but is not as attractive as the picture above.

    Put marinara sause on that spaghetti squash, or how about some alfredo sauce! Top it with mushrooms, or dress it any way you want to. A mild cheese, or parmesan cheese, also makes good toppings!

    Oh man that looks awesome!

    I'm getting ready to give a sunday gravy a go for the first time. Currently for the meat I'm making meatballs from my venison sausage, and I'm going to use hot Italian sausages, and I'm thinking maybe a rack of baby back ribs too. Got any tips you wanna share?

    Here's my recipe. http://www.flyfishohio.us/Spaghetti Sauce.htm

    And here's tonight's dinner...Lasagna! I was at the range today so I needed a meal that could be made Saturday and cooked Sunday. This topping sauce shown here is my Marinara Sauce made without any meat. I make both styles for different applications. the below Lasagna has my meat sauce in its layers, along with my homemade Italian sweet sausage and 80/20 beef.

    FWIW, I managed to get my High-Point 995TS sighted in with the new Bushnell 3x9 scope. The 100 yard range was closed for drainage maintenance, so I had to use the 50 yard range.
