Well, food & sex go hand in hand, yes?

So I promised someone I’d go into the laws on sex for Jews. Now, this is interesting, to say the least! First off, if your wife’s in the mood and not on her time of the month, a Jewish husband MUST give her sex. Also, if she doesn’t have ‘the fullest pleasure a woman can achieve when knowing her husband’, then you just committed a sin unto G-d. Next up is the fact that your JOB decides how many times you’re REQUIRED to ‘know’ your wife, guys! If you’re a student or live a live of leisure, you should have sex 4 times a week. If you are a business man, then three times a week! If you travel, then twice a week! If you’re a rabbi, then you have sex on Thursday nights! Mmmm, it’s good to be a student! ^^ Yes, I resorted to SEX to get readers! But it’s just discussion of Jewish Law, so nothing bad, me thinks!

Now it’s the start of squash season, so I get to get back into cooking my FAVORITE main course helper, spaghetti squash! This odd yet delicious vegetable is easy to cook, yet can be messed up if proper care isn’t taken.

Spaghetti Squash for Dummies

1 Whole Spaghetti Squash

Take the squash and wash off the skin fully, making sure its fully clean.

Using a knife, stab the squash all over, at about a stab every few inches so that there are small puncture wounds all over, but not THRU the squash.

Set the squash into a LARGE glass cooking dish and bake at 350 for about 15 minutes to soften the skin.

Removing the squash from the oven, slice in HALF lengthwise so you have two elongated bowls. Scoop out all the seeds, then set the squash BACK into the glass cooking dish with the cut side DOWN.

Add 1/4 cup water, cover with foil, and bake for another 25-30 minutes.

When done, take a fork and get ready for fun! Starting at one edge of the squash, start pulling towards the other end, shredding the meat out into spaghetti-like strands. Set the strands as they are released into a large serving bowl.

Garnish with a pat of butter or dairy-free margarine, and serve with your favorite pasta sauce! I prefer a rich Marinara or a tasty pesto sauce, myself, for this summer and fall treat!

So we’re at article #5 with 43 to go! Have you Sponsored Me yet? If not, why not? Come on, its for a good charity! Shalom and Good Cooking (In the kitchen or the bed room! ^^)!

    Wow… I actually knew those rules. Wow! I’m not as completely ignorant about things Jewish as I claim to be.

    You mean, Jews don’t have to have sex through a hole in a sheet? You’re kidding me, I’ve been lied to my whole life! 😉

    You can also cook this sort of squash in the microwave, if you wish. Just stab *through* the skin and into the squash several times. Put in on a plate. It takes 5 minutes per pound. I just blogged out this, as well. And took a photo of the results. 🙂 Good stuff.

    btw, sex should be fun and spontaneous, IMO (not to contradict anyone..lol) and very much not set at a certain number of times per day… er…. I mean “week”.
