Guys, it feels like it’s been literally F O R E V E R since I posted a recipe, like literally forever forever. I know that in reality it’s really only been a little over a week but by Vicci standards, we might as well just round that up to 2 months.
I had the most fantastic time at Panama City Beach with the most amazing people, but it feels good to finally get back into the swing of things. You know, spending endless hours in the kitchen whipping up yummy dishes, staying up until 4 am with my eyes glued to Pinterest and food blogs, literally calculating calories for my upcoming recipes in my sleep. Ahhhh, life is back to normal.
So, before I dive into the deets of this big pan of low carb, creamy guilt free heaven that you’re currently looking at, I have to let out some bad news. I returned from vacay with a little more than I bargained for. I came home with 6 extra pounds of “why did I eat all of that again” sitting pretty around my midsection. What’s funny is that I knew that I was bound to gain some weight. After all…those 4 plates that I piled high at the Chinese buffet and that entire sharing size bag of chocolate covered mangoes (nomnom) that I devoured on my lonesome had to account for something.
But I guess I just kept myself sort of in denial that somehow I would hop on the scale and it would be like “it’s okay girl I’ve got your back this time, we’re just gonna pretend that week long binge eating sesh never happened, ok?”
HA. Boy was I wrong. But, you know what, it’s okay…it’s totally okay. Those ugly numbers staring back at me are just more motivation to get back into my healthy(ish) lifestyle and get the pounds under control, right?
Which brings us this wonderful pasta dish that’s total comfort food and totally okay to sort of binge on because it’s not even pasta and is actually a vegetable. Like, I’m telling you guys right now that this is the real deal. If you’ve never ever had spaghetti squash before, this is for you. It is your time to shine my friend! I can’t think of a better way to get acquainted with such a fab veggie than by diving into a big bowl of garlicky, nutritious, flavorsome, Garlic Shrimp Spaghetti Squash wrapped in a creamy Greek Yogurt Alfredo sauce.
