Needless to say, work today was quite exhausting, and I was counting the minutes until I could go home and chillax! In good news, some of the managers decided to cook hot dogs for all of us in celebration of the Fourth of July weekend, and I LOVE me some hot dogs. Did you know July is actually National Hot Dog month?? Crazy!

As soon as 8pm rolled around, I jet out of the office and straight home to get comfy! Since the only thing I had eaten all day was hot dogs, I knew I needed something healthy and with veggies.
Stuffed Spaghetti Squash
This is one of my favorite recipes to make, because it is not only yummy, and really healthy, but it's so filling - and when you live with a man, a good solid meal with lots of meat is a must! I found this recipe on Courtney's blog, Sweet Tooth Sweet Life, and it looked way too good to pass up! You can find her recipe here. I of course "Amanda-fied" it a little to make it more meaty for my man. So away I got to cooking!
These are the ingredients I used. As you can see the chopped veggies are in bowls sitting on top of my cutting board. The world's SMALLEST cutting board ever! I seriously have to get a bigger one soon. :-P
The ingredients are very similar to Courtney's, but with a few slight changes.
