Spaghetti Squash Carbonara

There is a hint of fall in the air down here in Florida. I don’t think it’s reached 90 degrees in at least 5 days. Therefor I am celebrating and making the most of this weather.

Halloween has come and gone and it’s officially winter squash season. There are a large variety of squashes at Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods, Publix isn’t fully on board with carrying them yet, but they are working on it.

I picked up a spaghetti squash at Trader Joe’s and a butternut squash at Whole Foods.
