I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm

Ham, Peas and Swiss Cheese Spaghetti Squash
Lawdy this was so good I thought I might cry.  Some extra sprinkles of bread crumbs all toasty tasting on the top.  Hot from the oven, the cheese melted over those peas with the saltiness of the ham and the buttery 'squaghetti'.  It is certainly a good reminder that the good Lord really threw us a bone when he gave us the gift of creativity and art. How psyched was the first artisan to make ham. Preserving and curing it, smoking it.  Or cheese.  Actually that story is a little weird as it was found in the stomachs used to transport milk thousands of years ago on hot days. It curdled, they added salt - you get the picture.  Doesn't sound appetizing now but who can resist a good Manchego or Gouda today?  How happy was the first person to crack open this squash and decide to roast it and mix the strands with butter or a sauce.  The joy and art of cooking is a blessing with instant rewards and I am so forever grateful for it.
