It had been ages since we had spaghetti squash. But for some reason I took a fancy to it at the market and so we had it tonight.
Correction: I had it. MR prefers his nearly calorie-free shirataki noodles. I know I spelled that wrong and I don't care.
I made him a spaghetti sauce with 1 cup diced no salt organic tomatoes, a teaspoon mashed garlic, a tablespoon balsamic vinegar, and a liberal shake of Mrs. Dash Italian Blend, plus 250 g diced white mushrooms. I made myself a sauce of 1 can no-salt added generic tomato sauce, 1/2 cup no salt added tomatoes, a teaspoon garlic, tablespoon balsamic, and liberal shakes of Italian blend.
As a side dish I made him asparagus steamed in lemon juice, red wine vinegar, and Mrs. Dash onion and herb blend. I heart Madame Dash.
The dinner was delicious and fast, which was especially good considering that I am three days out from a very difficult election at work and have no time to do anything. I am barely holding up my end of the conversation. Luckily MR has been through this with me before and knows the drill. I am nothing but an organizer before the vote: you get your partner back a few days after.
I'm exhausted and miles to go before I sleep. Night blog...

Both sauces sound very good, although I really don't like spaghetti squash, so I'd go with MR's version. Best of luck, April!
