(Not Spaghetti) Squash

Cook the squash by cutting it in half and removing the seeds. Put it in a baking dish with 1/2 inch of water. Cover tightly with foil, bake 400 for 1 hour. In a frying pan add 1T olive oil, add 1 chopped onion and cook for a few minutes. Add 2 cloves of garlic, cook. Add squash and 1 can of diced tomatoes with liquid. Cover and cook 10 minutes. Uncover and cook until liquid reduces, 5-8 minutes more. Yummy! I think it would be even more yummy with a little parm cheese sprinkled on it.

Balsamic Chicken

I made Balsamic Chicken tonight and it was a big hit with my family. I super simplified a recipe a friend had posted on a low carb site- 6 chicken breasts, some shakes of italian seasoning, a can of diced tomatoes, 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar. Throw it all in the crockpot and cook all afternoon. My kids ate theirs over rice but I had mine over green beans and it was awesome! Plus it makes your house smell amazing!
