Monday: Twice Baked Spaghetti Squash

  • Laughing Cow wedges
  • basil
  • mozzarella cheese
  • cannellini beans
  • celery
  • Frank’s Red Hot
  • blue cheese

I already have on hand:

  • garlic

  • frozen spinach
  • chicken

  • carrots
  • onion
  • garlic
  • chili powder
  • cumin
  • frozen pepper/onion mix
  • rice
  • Campbell’s Skillet Sauce Creamy Chipotle w/ Roasted Corn & Black Beans
  • spaghetti




  • Organize the RR cabinet.
  • Pull chicken and chili out of the freezer.
  • “Once-bake” the spaghetti squash and get it ready for the “twice-bake” part.


After work: “Twice-bake” the spaghetti squash.

Late night: Chop the celery, carrots, and onion for the chili.


Before work Put ingredients in the crock pot.

After work: Put the finishing touches on the chili.

Late night: Dice chicken for the skillet.


After work: Cook the chicken with a frozen pepper/onion blend and the skillet sauce.  Heat rice in the microwave.  Trick or Treat!


After work: Assemble the casserole and bake.


After work: Cook the spaghetti and re-heat the chili.
