evening with a leftovers-filled fridge, another wacky
food experiment. Today's nutty idea is spaghetti squash yakisoba,
which is like regular yakisoba, but instead of noodles
I used spaghetti squash. Or you could think of
it as a simple vegetable stir-fry, but I like my version
better because it sounds all healthy and dietetic and
stuff. Besides, it's not all vegetable - there are chunks
of chicken in there too. Laying on top of all that are
a few slabs of
baked purple sweet potato,
with the skin on the bottom to keep the flavors from
mixing with the stir-fry. On the side I have a satsuma
and a half moon rice cake.
Man. When you're single, a spaghetti squash lasts
a long time. Every day this week I've taken out
a fork, twirled out another batch of "noodles,"
and considered what else I can do with the stuff. A
5-pound box of satsumas lasts a long time too. Good
thing I really like oranges!
