Random Friday Time! (& Spaghetti Squash)
Its random Friday time! But first, the usual rundown.
Last night I headed off to fitness class as planned. I learned that my trainer gets mad when I call it class because it really isnt, and he says that sounds boring. He says I should refer to it as group training instead. I will work on it.
Last night was the first time we have ever repeated a workout. We did the same workout that we did last Thursday (which was an awesome one!). There were a couple moves that varied, but it was the same for the most part, which I was 100% okay with because I enjoyed that mix. We also had a really small group last night, just 4 girls – which never happens. It was nice because we all got a little extra attention on form, etc.
Before I took off for
class group training, I put a spaghetti squash in the oven. I have been dying to try some as I have never had it!
I pierced it all over with a knife and placed it on its side (whole) on a cookie sheet. I set the oven to 375 degrees and set the timer for 1 hour. Torrance so nicely took it out for me, so when I got home it was ready to prepare. I sliced it in half (lengthwise), scooped the seeds and guts, and then scraped it out with a fork into a medium bowl. I prepared some marinara and sautteed mushrooms and served just like spaghetti.
Sadly my pictures of that part did not come out well. iPhone camera let me down. I am in serious need of a new camera….Hmmm, Christmas wish list?
I reassure you it was really, really good! Torrance was not quite as much in love with it as I was, but I had boiled some regular noodles for him because I had a hunch it would be “too weird” for him. I know him too well.
On to the randoms!
Random #1: Cowgirl wallet & giant purse
When Torrance went to Dallas for work a few weeks back, he brought me back a little present (he’s the best!). A new wallet, and it has “Texas” written all over it. It had to grow on me, and now I love it.
Yes, that is faux snakeskin. And yes, that is a big blingin’ star. Like I said, Texas.
In addition to that, I have really wanted a new (red) purse for fall. I fell in love with this Nine West purse but was hesitant to get it because it is giant and bigger than any purse I have ever carried. After Torrance gave me that wallet I figured it was a good time to go get that purse because I couldnt resist. I love Nine West purses because they are a soft and floppy leather. Plus, it was on sale (marked down to $30 from $120!!) cant beat that!
Yes, so big it wouldnt even all fit in the picture.
Random #2: New boots
I am absolutely loving these new boots I got in this week. I had a credit at a store online from a while back and used it to get these tan-booty-beauties (hehe).
Random #3: Peanut Butter
Remember how I was on the search for a new peanut butter a while ago? Well I have been experimenting and for now I found a whipped variety I like. Which is weird, I usually like my PB thick and heavy but something about this is just delicious, and I’m diggin it for now.
Random #4: Pie
Believe it or not, out of all the cooking and baking I have done… I have never baked a pie. This is on my to do list within the next month. Dont worry, I wont bake it for a holiday celebration…just incase I mess it up. Everyone has high pie expectations during the holidays ya know, and I wouldnt want to ruin anyone’s Thanksgiving.
Have a good day! I’m off to get ready for work and make some breakfast! And coffee. Need coffee.
