I love summer foods and I love summer. I use my oven and gas burners all year even though I live in warm Georgia; plenty of grilling outside too though. I don't make chili, soups, stews or holiday foods/baking in the summer, but everything else is fair game year round.

I tried it a few years ago and liked it

I just cut it in half, rub it with olive oil, bake cut side down for 1 hr at 400. When it`s tender, just scrape it out with a fork. It will come out in strands like spaghetti. I satue it a little oil with some garlic. So good

So after baking it can be used in many ways...like in place of spaghetti, I've seen...or on it's own in a saute...

I love spaghetti squash. The first time I had it was at a restaurant I worked at. The steamed it, cut it in half, scraped out the spaghetti like strands and mixed it with butter and s&p. Very simple but good.

I have also made it with meat sauce and lentil sauce on top. I still like it best with a little butter, s&p.

That's how I like it, too. A little butter complements its sweet flavor. Save the sauce for spaghetti!

Ohhh...cooler weather comfort food cooking is my favorite!

I used to love summer so much when I was younger, but now, I can't stand the heat and humidity of NC summers anymore. Give me fall any day!

I can't wait to make:
Beef stew
Beef roast
Pork roast
Chili (Different kinds...traditional chili, white chicken chili...)
All kinds of soups (broccoli and cheese, vegetable beef soup with tons of veggies, potato soup, taco soup)
Chicken and pastry
Cakes
Cookies
PIES!
Holiday foods!

Right now, we're mostly eating sandwiches, salads, wraps, etc.
