Dirty Old Men

Oh mah god, turkey pepperoni is just the best food on earth, ever.

I meant to write about this last night. So I went to the grocery store last night (and dammit, I just found out that I picked up the wrong kind of cottage cheese. Dammit!) and while I was in the checkout line the man in front of me started making smalltalk. He was about 60, rail thin, orangey-tan, with white hair and wearing skin tight blue jeans (ergh). Our conversation went something like this:

Dirty Old Man: That looks like it would be good. *points to spaghetti squash*
Innocent Young Me: Well I don't really know, this is the first time I've bought one.
DOM: I wonder how you cook them?
IYM: You split them in half, bake them cut sides down for an hour, then scoop out the seeds and shred it with a fork, like spaghetti.
DOM: That's a lot of work!
IYM: I guess so!
DOM: That's too complicated for me. If I wanted to eat food like that I would have stayed married ... the two times I was ... *big smile*
IYM: *blank stare*
IYM: *narrows eyes into glare*
IYM: Okaaaay.

I've got two sweet potatoes baking in the oven. I yam addicted.

HAHAHAHA. Get it?? I *YAM* addicted?!!?

Oh, go away...

Ahhh..delicious spaghetti squash. Another fav? Butternut squash. Of course, I defeat the purpose of healthy butternut squash by serving it up with butter and brown sugar .. but .. hey .. what can ya do? Spaghetti squash with butter, salt, pepper and a little garlic .. yum-yum. (even marinara sauce).. damn. Now I'm hungry. ~~TVJ~~
