« Crockpot Chili: It's a Texture Thing | Main | It's Not Supposed to Be True....But It Is Sometimes. »

September 28, 2009



Middle of the night lunches sound about right. I have those too when I'm working.

This looks really delish. I'm going to have go get some spaghetti squash now.


By the way... the chili you posted the other day? Fabulous! I can't believe the difference it made to throw the meat in raw. My husband loved it too!


Very cool! So glad you guys liked it too. I don't think I'm ever going to make it the old way again. I just really liked how the meat cooked down. (Thanks for letting me know you liked it!)



I have a spaghetti squash just sitting on my counter right now - I just might have to make this on the weekend :o)

If I do - I'll tell you how it goes and how I perverted it to suit my diet.


Yummy, just saved the recipe.


Colleen--Let me know if you do! I really love spaghetti squash. Hey, Auntie Miranda was saying the other day that she saw a recipe where they were adding veggies and cutting carbs by mixing half and half pasta and spahetti squash. I thought that was pretty interesting.

Kalyn--Cool! Have fun with it. It simple and comforting...


Yea - we had talked about ways of cutting carbs for when I am on maintenance and can eat more normal things again, but damn - I was looking at the packages for pasta and one serving of pasta was like 60 carbs!! SOOOOO not worth it to me to screw it up at this point, lol. We talked about the potatoes too - half potatoes half cauliflower. 31 lbs and counting :o)


Ok this was seriously good! Obviously I made it a bit different to take into consideration my dietary needs, and what I had on hand, but this was AMAZING.

Here's MY ingredient list:

1 spaghetti squash
4 oz light cream cheese
1/3 cup whipping cream (0 carbs)
5 oz Mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
1 medium onion, diced
1 tbsp feta greek salad dressing
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 cup shredded Cheese
1 lb regular ground beef.

So - for 6 servings, which is probably less then it can actually be served if using as a side for - the count is as follows:

Calories: 430, Fat: 31g, Carbs: 10, Protein: 26.6g

SERIOUSLY YUM! That puts the stats for this meal at 66% fat, 9% carb, and 26% protein which is PERFECT for me.

Matt thought it was fantastic as well - I think he would have preferred I threw in some garlic I'm sure, I just didn't feel like dicing any up at the time.


Oh shoot - edit my comment to read regular cream cheese. I don't use anything light. BLECH.
