Remodeling Inconvenience – My Delight – We Tried Out the New Zinburger in Our Area – Gluten-free Choices Were Available –

Remodeling 2Steve moved our refrigerator out of its cubbyhole in the kitchen so he could lay hardwood flooring in that space. My plan to bake a spaghetti squash for lunch looked questionable. While cooking and cleaning up, I would surely be in Steve’s way. We needed a plan.

Remodeling 1Steve suggested we go out for lunch and investigate the new Zinburger restaurant that opened recently in our area. He didn’t have to ask me twice. We had a wonderful time together. Zinburger served us excellent tasting hamburgers with gluten-free buns! My wheat allergy has made it difficult for us to find places to eat with anything for me on the menu. What a pleasant surprise this was!

Remodeling 3When we returned home, Steve began his flooring project. I remembered that I had already pierced the skin of the spaghetti squash to prevent it from exploding in the oven. I felt I needed to cook this squash since I’d already pierced it.

I baked it at 375 degrees for about an hour, removSpaghetti Squash 3ed the seeds, and pulled out the meat with a fork. I will serve it tomorrow with Alfredo sauce on top and orange slices on the side. I’ll clean up my mess later when Steve has finished his work.

Perhaps I could have found a way to serve lunch at home, but Zinburger was a lot more fun.
