the year of the dinner

i decided that 2013 was the year of the dinner! my family decided that they would continue to want to eat dinner every single night and so i decided that i wanted to get really good at dinner.  i want george to say this christmas that i fed him well all year...tasty, healthy, real food.  and the occasional keller's hamburger :) which is amazing too.

5 o'clock is a bad time to think about whats for dinner.  have i said that before?  its true.  it makes me crazy.  it makes my kids extra hungry and extra crazy.  i want to plan and prepare and get really good at dinner this year!

two nights ago, i cooked a spaghetti squash in the microwave and served it with meat and tomato sauce.  it was good.  no one was crazy about it.  george wasnt that into spaghetti squash in general.  but it filled peoples tummies.

i had a ton of spaghetti squash left over and wanted to figure out how to make it delicious.  where everyone would love it!  lick their plates.  and what do you know? when you follow a recipe...people like what you cook.  i followed this recipe and it was amazing.  my people licked their plates.   george took all of the leftovers to work today and declared that he would be eating it before his 1st period class even got in the room.  i love that!

i served it with the best broccoli of your life and it really is the best.  i do this recipe's method of roasting vegetables at least 4 times a week.  always with different combos...broccoli and cauliflower or sweet potato fries or bell peppers or carrots.  yum yum.  the citrus really makes it so yummy!  i buy the bag of broccoli/cauliflower florets already ready for you which makes it super easy.
