Only 2 more sleeps until Thanksgiving! The day filled with loved ones, thankfulness, good food and full bellies is almost here, and we are ecstatic!

While most of your Thanksgiving feast menus are set (hopefully…), there is always room for another tasty appetizer to fend off the hungry crowd until the roasted Bird is served.

We had the perfect dinner in Cabo last weekend. Perfect.

It was a complete surprise to me – I definitely thought we were going out for some beach bar nachos (which would have been fine by me!) – but Chrissy planned a beautiful sunset dinner at a gorgeous restaurant where we were able to eat dinner with our feet in the sand.

Cauliflower is making a come-back. I’m sure of it, because I felt so compelled to buy 3 heads of the stuff.

I can’t remember a time in my life when that would ever have made sense, so I’m just going with it and I’ll see what happens.

Lemon & Herb Roasted Spaghetti Squash

by Chrissy

Mmm Spaghetti squash. If this isn’t a squash that you have already tried, well, then you are in for a real treat!

But, don’t get confused. This is no replacement for spaghetti pasta. However, you can use it as a substitute, drenched in marinara and tossed with freshly grated Parm.

This season, we are especially loving the citrus & squash combo. It makes for quite the tasty side-dish. We know you will love it too.

When I lived in … Read more...
