You couldn’t get me to eat spaghetti as a kid. If I did, I refused to eat it with tomato sauce and would instead angrily eat the plain noodles. I’m happy those days are over. Now I no longer have to suffer through family spaghetti nights. I like experimenting and recently I made spaghetti squash. I really loved it. The spaghetti squash noodles don’t have that starchy taste the pasta noodles have. I needed ways to eat the spaghetti squash and use up some homemade chicken broth.
A lot of people rant and rave about loving chicken broth. I can’t stand it. I made it thinking I would try out this bone broth thing and I diligently saved chicken bones for months. I made the broth and I was like, “that’s it?” I didn’t like the smell of it and I couldn’t picture myself enjoying the broth a few times a day. I was trying to get rid of it by sneaking it into as many recipes as possible. Since then I have made beef bone broth and I love it! I still haven’t been able to get my broth to gel….
