Mexican Spaghetti Squash {an apology, gluten-free recipe and an announcement}

Apology: And it happens yet again, I inadvertently take a 2 month blogging hiatus! Please know that I have NOT forgotten about you but plead insanity for the beginning of the school year (for those of you new to the blog I am a Kindergarten teacher). 

Gluten-Free Recipe: To make it up to you I have some yummy recipes to share with you this week! First up, another great way to get some spaghetti squash into your diet, based off this recipe. Just a reminder to check out this post for how to cook the squash and the Spaghetti Squash Au Gratin recipe.
 Mexican Spaghetti Squash

1 spaghetti squash cooked and shredded (don't forget to roast the seeds!)
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil 

1/2 cup chopped red onion
1 bell pepper, chopped (whatever colors you like best)
1 can black beans

2-4 cloves garlic, minced
1 can black-eyed peas
1-2 T red pepper flakes (depending on how much heat you like)
2 tsp parsley

1 squirt lemon juice or the juice from half a lemon
pinch Real salt to taste
Optional- shredded cheese, sour cream, guacamole

Heat skillet and add oil, garlic, onion, peppers. Sautee until soft. Add beans and peas for another few minutes. Add squash and the rest of the ingredients, cook until heated through. Place completed dish back in squash shells to serve. Add shredded cheese, sour cream, guacamole as desired.

I ate mine with tortilla chips! Yum!

Announcement: I have recently become a consultant for Celadon Road! I am SO excited about using and selling these products. Organic/natural, produced sustainably, 90% made in USA and when from out of the country fair trade! Come check out their products and feel free to order from my Launch Party! Make sure you check "Ship to host" to get the $5.95 shipping deal. I will then pick up the tab and redirect right to you if you live outside of my delivery range. 

Some of the best selling products are the cleaning products. I love cleaning with vinegar and baking soda but the family doesn't appreciate the smell. These products have such a light scent without any chemicals to harm you, your family or your pets!

Some other great products to check out include the deodorant, dog shampoo, reusable sandwich bags and jewelry made from recycled glass!

This is the last week for the current catalogs so some items will no longer be available after October 31. This is also the last week to get signed up and be a Founding Consultant of this wonderful company! Let me know if you are interested!
