I’m so excited to finally have a blog of my own. I’ve been reading healthy living blogs for longer than I care to admit (let’s just say that the first food blog that I read was Cristin’s Eat Like Me…), and now finally seems like a good time to start my own.
I’m just a regular gal, 25 and living in Atlanta. I cherish the time that I get to spend with my girlfriends, so what better way to start things off than sharing last night’s girls night? My friend just got engaged last weekend, so my roommate (Elizabeth) and I had her and another girlfriend over for dinner.
This is a really old (but all that I can find right now) picture of me, Elizabeth and Lauren…
Elizabeth made spaghetti squash lasagna, which turned out so well. You just halve two spaghetti squashes and bake them for 35 minutes at 350*. From there, you layer the spaghetti squash, marinara sauce, roasted veggies and mozzarella cheese. Repeat until you run out of ingredients, and bake for an additional 30 minutes or so.
It tasted better than it looks!
When I asked the newly engaged gal what she wanted for dessert, she said “something healthy.” Since we were going with a fall theme, I decided to bake a healthy apple crisp. I basically just cut back on the sugar, added oats and used whole wheat flour.
And the final product?
It was delicious and (somewhat) healthy! Is there anything better then a Wednesday night spent with girlfriends and wine? I think not!
I’m off to relax for the night… currently listening to Empire State of Mind (Jay Z and Alicia Keys, love it) and I plan on watching the Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion.
Which Real Housewives series is your favorite?
I have always liked the Real Housewives of OC, but the Housewives of Atlanta are so ridiculous that I can’t stop watching! I always watch to see where they go, but honestly, they don’t seem to be in the city all that often.
