Lazy Girl's Cooking

This was supposed to go online last night... Not sure what happened... This way, it's going to be a TGIF post. Happy soon to be weekend everyone! ;-)

I am pretty lazy when it comes to cooking, but every now and then I make a little bit of an effort, especially now that I am trying to loose a couple of pounds again. Anyways, since time during the week is pretty sparse, I sometimes do a couple of hours of power cooking on Sundays that fills lots and lots of containers in the fridge and freezer to be warmed-up during the week.

Yesterday, I had a free evening for a change, because I already got all my workouts out of the way in the morning. SCORE! So I used that time to finally use up some produce purchases from weeks ago... At least some of them were from weeks ago... Potatos stay alright in the fridge forever! ;-)

Potatos, bell pepper, onion and brussels sprouts... Olive oil, salt and pepper in supportin roles.

And.... Spaghetti Squash.

Until a couple of weeks ago, I didn't even know of the existence of spaghetti squash... Until it was featured in Runner's World as the seasonal food... Funny enough, I found it right away at the local Bi-Lo.... No fancy grocery store whatsoever. To be honest, I had to read the sticker on in, because I really can't tell the difference between a pumkin and this one.

This the whole bunch after being chopped up and roasted in the oven for an hour*. The only thing left to do was now to cut open the spaghetti squash, scrape out the insides and mix it into the other stuff.

* Time I used to do laundry.... It's all about efficiency.

To fix lunch, I also took some black bean burger patties (made in one of my Sunday afternoon power cooking session) out of the freezer. While I throughoutly enjoyed the roasted veggies today for lunch... The black bean burger tasted off and I just had a couple of bites. Oh well. You win and you loose.
