Spaghetti Squash Lasagna Boat on plate

Spaghetti Squash Lasagna BoatsI love spaghetti squash. It's easy to cook, has a great texture, swaps out a bunch of my favourite carb-heavy pastas, and is packed with awesome nutrients. Here, I've turned them into lasagna boats using my homemade tomato sauce. The alternating layers of squash, sauce, and cheese are so comforting. I used pepperoni sticks in the sauce because they give it the most amazing smoky flavour and smell. You can use any meat you like, or skip it and go vegetarian.


Coconut Macaroons on plate

A binder clip holding a pair of bluetooth headphones.

A plate containing different sprouted seeds.

Sprouted Seeds from your Kitchen CabinetI always sprout seeds, especially in the winter. I add them to sandwiches, salads, soups, or even eat as snacks! I normally just use a mason jar with a piece or cheese cloth or a little screen material under the jar ring/cap to allow me to rinse and drain daily until they sprout.


A cell phone sitting on a table or countertop.

Finding Cell Phone When Home AloneWhen I retired and was home alone all day, I sometimes misplaced my cell phone. Since women's clothes often don't have pockets, it would sometimes be on a different floor if I was cleaning closets, etc. I would have to email my daughter at work and ask her to call me since we don't have a land line anymore.


A plastic container being used as a drip catch tray for a potted plant.

Cooking oatmeal as pancakes.

Leftover Oatmeal PancakesI make a larger serving of steel cut oatmeal to have quick breakfasts throughout my week. Sometimes, I'll use some of it by frying some up in an oiled pan as pancakes! It is purely oatmeal. I do add cinnamon and added blueberries to my oatmeal after I make it but nothing else different is added.


A teapot with a colored in chip on the spout.

Covering Chips on a TeapotI got a beautiful teapot on Freecycle. It had a noticeable chip on the end of the spout. If it had been anywhere else, I would have covered it with a Sharpie or some other kind of paint. However, since I am going to drink tea, I was concerned about the paint getting into the water.
