Spaghetti Squash with Garlic Alfredo and Bacon
Counting calories, very rewarding but what a pain in the toosh. Ugh, I am glad I only do this once in a while and then am able to relax and go back to eating without having to count anything, other than the forkfuls that go into my mouth *snicker*
Anyway, with all this calorie counting I'm just glad that I have great blogs that I follow because Debbi at Debbi Does Dinner Healthy has saved me a ton of time but having delicious recipes at my disposal with the calorie count already factored in. YAY for Debbi.
We tried this one tonight and it was soooooooo good. I am not kidding, it was delicious. Don't let the Spaghetti Squash scare you away, I am telling you, try it and then let me know just how good it was.
I adapted the recipe a little as I completely forgot about the chicken, oh well LOL
