The BEST Spaghetti Squash Recipe (so far...) and Hanson's Week 2

If you try one recipe from my blog, try this one. Seriously. It was delicious. My husband took one bite of it and said "THIS, is a keeper." Bonus points for how easy this one is as well. I was not sure how this one would go over, since Nate is not really a mushroom fan, but sauté them up in a little bit of olive oil with the spaghetti squash and parsley and it brings out a whole new flavor. UPDATE: (2/9) - Now adding kale to this recipe! It adds quite a bit of additional flavor to the dish! SO good!)

Roasted Spaghetti Squash with Mushrooms

I am pretty sure this will be made again in the very near future.

Today also completed week 2 of Hanson's Advanced plan, with the addition of the first speed workout. It was a challenge, as I have never done a speed workout that required 9 miles of running before. By the last 400 I was pretty tired (and I kept thinking to myself "WHAT THE HELL...IT'S ONLY A 400). Then I remembered that a) I hadn't done speed work since September b) I'm on a treadmill in a 85 degree stuffy gym and c) it was the first day back to work after vacation. Overall, this week was 41 miles of training and I was able to get 6 out of the 41 miles done on the VERY icy road. With the addition of the first tempo run and first run done at long run pace, next week will be a real test to see if this plan is do-able for me. In the meantime, I have another NEW recipe already made for tomorrow night! Review to come! Now - go get some spaghetti squash and mushroom and make this recipe!
