I love that Pumpkin Pie is a staple this time of the year.
We enjoy pumpkin pie as a dessert with friend and family just because pumpkin pie is such a festive fall treat. We also, most importantly if you ask me, enjoy pumpkin pie as part of a holiday dinner. Thanksgiving seems to be synonymous with pumpkin pie- just after turkey of course...



Pumpkin Pie is such a fun and tasty treat this time of the year! Having a classic recipe for pumpkin pie reminds us of family gatherings of long ago.



The kind of pumpkins that we use for baking are actually pretty wholesome.

Okay, we may use the pumpkin that comes from a can, at least I do out of convenience. There is a lot of good about pumpkin.

Super Simple Turkey Casserole

Casseroles in general, are an easy and filling meal that people just seem to like this time of the year.
Finding the perfect casserole recipe that is easy to make and tastes good is a score. Using turkey is a delicious way to enjoy a casserole. Especially, when I can use up leftovers.


The fun thing about casseroles is that you can add just about anything to them and they work for you.
The basic ingredients that go into just about every kind of a casserole seem to be sitting in my kitchen cupboard. Making a casserole at the last minute is not a huge challenge. This is especially true if you don't have a lot of time to cook something at the last minute and you have time to prepare it in advance. I have prepared casseroles the night before and let them sit in the fridge over night before cooking. I have also prepared them earlier in the day and have set my oven to cook at a more convenient time for me.

And lets talk about using up some leftovers.
After a large turkey dinner, it seems as if we are looking for creative ways to use up those leftovers. Making a turkey casserole is one way to do this.

I like to start with a classic no-frills bun. A simple white or wheat bun works best for me in this wonderful sandwich. The great taste of the Sloppy Joe style sandwich has a lot to do with how this basic bun soaks up the sauce too.

On the side of this sandwich, it seems as if we always see a basic potato chip or fry. I also add a pickle on the side to balance out the colors and the flavors.

It really is a tasty treat.

Super Easy-How to make Spaghetti Squash


Oddly enough, my mother was never into making these kinds of vegetables so this is something that I had never tried.

I am a big girl now and it is time to explore the world.



I love that Spaghetti Squash in loaded with nutrients such as Vitamin A and is low in fat.



How to Make Spaghetti Squash

One would look at Spaghetti Squash and think that it is a starchy and caloric vegetable.

Spaghetti Squash is actually a fruit. A cup of Spaghetti Squash only has about 35-40 calories. Unlike Spaghetti Squash's squash relatives, when cooked, the flesh from the Spaghetti Squash resembles spaghetti-like strands.

Spaghetti squash is easy to make as it can be baked, boiled, steamed, or microwaved. You can even roast the seeds like you would for pumpkin seeds.





Here is how to make it.

Super Easy! How to make Spaghetti Squash
This veggie looks more intimidating than it really is- making it super-easy to make! Right now, we are seeing all of the yummy squashes in my local store.
This to me is a true sign that it is fall and all of the yummy holidays are just around the corner.
Ingredients
  • 1 Spaghetti Squash
  • 1 tablespoon- additional if needed Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • as needed Seasonings- such as salt, salt alternatives, etc
Instructions
Preheat your oven to 400 and line a baking pan with aluminum foil.Take a large knife or cleaver and slice your spaghetti squash in half lengthwise. Kind of like when slicing a watermelon, make an initial gauge to get your knife in. You may need to give your squash a quick 'whack'- which is what works for me.Using a spoon, scoop out the seeds and random 'guts' that are around them. The seeds can be saved and baked like pumpkin seeds. I also save some to plant in my garden.Drizzle your olive oil over the inside of the squash. 1 tablespoon should be enough but, if you need more, use it sparinglyAdd your seasonings over the olive oilFlip your squash over- face down, on to the foil. If possible, roll up the foil edges, but not over the squash.This will prevent any drippings from leaking on to the pan.Bake for 35-40 minutes or until you are able to easily scrape the insides away from the 'shell'I've sprinkled a bit of Parmesan cheese over my squash for an extra taste. You really can just eat this the way it is without anything else.Make this in the microwave- use a baking dish without foil. Cover with plastic wrap (that is microwave safe) cook for 10-12 minutes. Some folks will just wrap the entire squash in plastic, microwave and scoop/season later.
