Tonight’s video is not my favorite. Here’s why, yesterday family stuff ran far later than expected, so we didn’t cook anything. That meant today’s video felt more rushed. I just don’t think that the video does the meal itself justice.


Today’s meal, from the PaleOMG website, is a Chicken Bacon Alfredo.

One of my favorite meals as a kid used to be fettucini alfredo with chicken. Until Paleo came along for me, I didn’t know it was possible to have a “pasta” dish without actual pasta. Spaghetti squash has completely changed that view for me, and it is delicious!

For the recipe, I used an Acorn Squash as opposed to Delicata Squash (supermarket availability), and aside from that the recipe was done pretty much to specs.

In the video, I made some dumb choices (mashing spaghetti squash pasta down in the dish, bad explaining of steps, letting segments run too long), but I blame those on how tired I am today. The next video will be better, or at least I promise to try! 🙂

Bottom line, the kitchen smells amazing, I got to eat some bacon tonight, and I really enjoyed the few bites of this meal I had tonight!
