Laundry done, fudge made, bathroom cleaned, dishes done and dinner complete. This was a day of firsts for my husband and I.
This holiday season is the first time I made fudge. The entire time I was doing it I thought I was doing it wrong because it was just that easy to make.
The fudge ingredients.
Here is a look at the fudge before I cut it up.
For the final product I cut it into pieces, trying to help with portion control! The fudge was awesome. The flavor was rich, the texture was creamy with a little bit of crunch from the nuts.
And here is a closer look (I'm so proud of my first fudge making experience :))
mmm...I know what I will be having for dessert tonight.
Another first during dinner time, spaghetti squash. I can't believe it took me this long to try it. As my husband said, this is the best way to eat a vegetable. Obviously he is not a veggie fan like I am. But, I have to agree that this is one fantastic dish!

I served the squash with garlic and pasta sauce.
I actually can not wait to have the leftovers tomorrow.
While I was cooking the squash my husband made steaks. This was the first time we used the griddler to grill our steak. Like every other first today, it was fantastic!
What a successful day. I love days like this, where everything works out and I have a sense of accomplishment!
What is your favorite way to prepare Spaghetti squash?
Since I've only had it one way I will have to say, topped with pasta sauce.
Okay, well I'm off to grab a piece of fudge and spend time with my husband. Hope everyone had a great Sunday, just like I did!
