Cooking Spaghetti Squash and Saving SeedsSpaghetti squash is such a nutritious and low calorie substitute for pasta. Many recipes call for baking. I have found that after cutting the squash lengthwise, scooping out the seeds, and microwaving cut side down for about 10 minutes (depending on the size), it is perfectly done.
The added bonus is that the seeds can be saved for planting. I simply wash the seeds and leave them out for a few days to dry, then store in a paper envelope.

Recycle Old Day Planners into Scratch-PadsAround our house, we use Day-Planners and several different calendars simultaneously, which ultimately leaves us with a lot of paper that needs recycling.

Simply cut long strips from your old planner or calendar, trim to neaten, staple on one end and you're done. Stacks and stacks of free note-pads. Enjoy!
