More recipes

These are a few of the recipes I'm going to try this week. I hope they go over well with everyone. The girls have been kind of picky lately. I doubt they will eat the Jerusalem Salad (it's a little spicy), but I'm really hoping they will try the Super Simple Spaghetti and Jerusalem Salad.

Super Simple Spaghetti
Mary Jane Medlock

Serves 2 (I'm going to triple this recipe)

1 medium spaghetti squash
2 medium ripe vine tomatoes chopped
Juice of one small lemon
1 - 2 cloves of fresh garlic minced or chopped
2 - 3 Tbs. of olive oil
Fresh ground pepper
1/4 teaspoon of oregano

Directions: Cut spaghetti squash in half (clean out seeds). In a baking dish put spaghetti squash (facing down) in a 375 degree oven. Bake for approximately 45 minutes or until done. Let cool for about 5 minutes. Using fork, scoop out the spaghetti squash into a bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and toss. Eat warm or cold.
