While its cooking, you put together in a pan one chopped onion and one green pepper. You can add some oil and garlic for flavoring.
After this stuff is tender, you can add some tomatoes and even some meat. When I make this, I often buy chicken sausages at Trader Joe's and chop them up and put them in here to heat them up. They are pre-cooked, so they can be added at the end.
Instead of adding fresh tomatoes like I normally would, I had some (well, 2) cans of Italian-style chopped tomatoes that I had accidentally purchased. I thought it would be a good time to use them. It was perfect using them because the extra liquid in the tomatoes as well as the flavoring made this dish even better!
Anyways, about this time the squash was cooked so after it sits for a minute or two, you take a fork to it and pull the squash apart. Its called Spaghetti Squash because it comes out of the squash looking like spaghetti noodles:
Well, you mix everything together, or you can serve it like spaghetti - the "noodles" on the bottom with the sauce on the top. Add basil and feta cheese to top it off.

This is the before picture:
First I covered it in three coats of Magnetic paint.
Then I covered it in Chalkboard paint
After that, I painted the outside edge that red color that was on the dresser.
This is the way it looks now. I know it still needs to go up in the office, but doesn't it look good?

I know it holds significance for many people. It holds significance for me.
I would be 32 weeks pregnant today.
When I think about this period of time, I remember the joy and pain.
Take a moment today and light a candle, write a note or say a prayer, for someone you know that has lost a child. Whether it be in pregnancy or after birth.
