I have been on a spaghetti squash hunt for the past few months. You see, since finding out that I’m intolerant to every grain and cereal imaginable, I can no longer eat spaghetti of any variety and it’s the one food I really miss.
So, I was delighted when one of the lovely readers of my blog told me about spaghetti squash as an alternative. I have to admit that I’d never even heard of a spaghetti squash before, and it turns out that no one else round here has heard of one either. My Mum and I have scoured supermarkets, the fresh produce markets, you name it, and not one single person knows what a spaghetti squash is, let alone where I can buy one.
Last night, my Mum went out for dinner with her friend, Jane, and the spaghetti squash topic came up (naturally!) Jane lives abroad and said how she’s eaten spaghetti squash before (apparently, it’s delicious) as her neighbour used to grow it. She suggested growing our own, which in theory is a fantastic idea, but we still had the problem of where to buy the seeds. Jane whipped out her phone, did a quick internet search and found that you can order them online. Who’d have thought?

Most of today has been a wash out, as I’m still sleeping really badly and I’m struggling through a haze of exhaustion. Just finding the energy to string a sentence together is hard work, let alone finding my happy feeling place. But, just when I was wondering what on earth my reason to feel glad/happy/joyful today would be, my Mum announced that she had bought us a packet of spaghetti sqaush seeds online. 🙂
Day 133, Reason 133: Today I am happy to be a step closer towards tasting my first spaghetti squash.
Now, we just need to grow them! Any tips?
