Cravings Combine

Alright, we all have those weird combo's out there. James love marmite and almond butter together with banana (its actually really good), I like just about anything with ketchup (I won't even get into detail there). But tonight I had 2 cravings! I wanted some kind of pasta carbonara fix and I wanted my breakfast omelet fix. When asking James "what you would you like for dinner?", his response was of course "any food is good food, you decide." That really didn't help much but I love that he is so flexible and easy to please. So here's what I decided. Spaghetti Squash with a little tahini butter mix in the noodles, then on top of that was mixture chicken sausage/egg and avocado combo (with some extra veggies of course). Pretty good and it hit BOTH spots. I call this Lindsay's scramble n' squash.


Ingredients:

1 spaghetti squash
1 TBSP olive oil
1 TBSP tahini
1/2 avocado
salt & pepper to taste
2-3 chicken sausage links (cooked and diced)
2 eggs scrambled with pesto
2-3 plum tomatoes diced
1oz mozzarella almond cheese or regular mozzarella cheese

Directions:

Cut your squash in half and place face up on a foil lined baking sheet.
Bake in a 375° degree oven for 50 minutes.
Remove from oven and allow to cool for a few minutes.
Scrape out the seeds and then scrape the noodle-like flesh away from the skin with a fork and place in a bowl. Mix in oil with the hot noodles allowing it to melt.

For the chicken/egg mixture. Scramble eggs with 1 tbsp pesto or pesto mix then add your cooked diced chicken sausage and tomatoes. Cook until all flavors and blended.

Then toss your squash noodles with scrambled egg/chicken sausage mix.
Chop up avocado and almond cheese and add to your bowl.








P.S.
I have to apologize for the crappy pictures from my phone. I was without the camera once again. :)
Have any weird combo's out there? I gotta hear them!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! That dinner looks fantastic.. I actually had spaghetti squash tonight too (I'm a little obsessed with all things squash at the moment, haha). I love your story! I just recently decided to pursue a health, nutrition & fitness counseling career, so it's so inspiring & encouraging to hear your story :)

Ahhh I LOVE spaghetti squash with tahini. It's the best. And usually some plain almond milk to thin it out. Great looking dinner! Love the eggs too!

Looks delicious. Can't say I've ever had Tahini. Will have to look into it. Won't be the first time your blog has sent me to the store.

The other night I had a similar breakfast for dinner craving, end result: Egg whites, baked sweet potato,spinach, tomato, green onion, & bell pepper. Awesome.

I call this brilliant. I would so love to dine with you and your husband. I'll bring the ketchup. ;)

CD cringes at how many dishes I love to cover in ketchup. Seriously, it's kind of gross. Hehe.

Enjoy your weekend!

Hey, thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting! :)

We have a strange combo, but it's so tasty! Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with chips and salsa on the side... I kid you not! Now just the smell of peanuts makes me crave salsa! Haha!
