Even though it is now late September I’m holding on to summer desperately. Okay well kind of. I did make spaghetti squash today, a food very fall like in nature, but dammit, I also went to the lake one last time!
As I did my P90X this morning, I realized it was very, very hot already by 9 A.M. In fact on this, my day off, it was suppose to reach 86 degrees in Running Springs, California. Autumn, my ass.
So I packed up my favorite Jen Lancaster book, sunscreen, water and took off for Big Bear Lake. Unfortunately the bees were out in droves and I had to try a few different areas by the lake before I found one that was bee free. What is with the aggressive bees in the fall? I’m pissed about the shorter days to but I don’t act like a little buzzing bitch all day. Okay, wait, maybe I do.
Anyways, at one point there were about twenty bees surrounding me AND I DIDN’T GET STUNG! I am one lucky girl. To celebrate I went home and made Spaghetti Squash. I was going to make Annette’s recipe, but I just kind of made a creation and it is so good! Keep in mind, I have never made Spaghetti Squash in my life before!
