Shrimp Pepper Jack Mac & Cheese ~ Lightened Up Mac & Cheese with a Kick! Topped with Crunchy Shrimp!

Growing up my family almost always took a summer vacation. It usually wasn’t super fancy but it was a vacation where we got to leave the hustle and bustle of the real world and go on a little adventure. Mom always made a point of making this happen from my memories and Dad was drug away from the farm for a few days, which trust me is a hard thing to accomplish so kudos to my mom! You see farming is not my Dad’s “job” it’s his lifestyle. Eat, Drink, Breathe. Pretty much sums it up! It’s a good thing he seems to love it because if you didn’t it would be a miserable life. I’m so glad he found his passion in life, which sometimes I reflect on and wonder if I found it!

Oh don’t get me wrong we had fun on vacation but there were always moments that I now look back on and think man I was a real stinker. I antagonized my brother in the back seat of the car way to frequently getting on our parents nerves, I’m sure I whined way more than I want to remember and was a brat. Good thing I mostly remember just being with the family and doing our little “special” things on vacation like finding license plates from all 50 states, finding the letters of the alphabet while driving etc. This was way before you ever had such things as DVD players or tablets in the car! We made our own fun!

Let’s be honest here. I’m going to admit something. All those recipes you see on my blog. I rarely make them repeatedly. Sure I have my go to recipes that never fail me like when I need a sweet treat for someplace I usually go to these super easy Monster Cookie Bars. Or when I’m going to a summer time get together I’ll bring my Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad. Of course I have a few “go-to” family, friendly meals for company or to bring to families with newborns like this Spasagna or Mac & Cheese Lasagna!

Then every once in a while I fall in love with a recipe and I make it multiple times. Sometimes my family get scared because this is not typical behavior for a woman like me!

It’s already the middle of August! My niece and nephew have started their sports and school is looming around the corner much to my nephew’s dismay. I can’t believe that “little” guy is already going to be a junior. Soon it will be me saying that about Miss K.

Healthy Sweet and Sour Pork with Spaghetti Squash - Julies Eats and Treats

If you’ve ever visited my blog, Food Faith Fitness, you may know that I have a bit of a “thang” for odes.

So I’ve got another one comin’ at ya today.

Oh Asian Take out

You’re so delicious, of that there is no doubt

But, I wish that your goodness was not so deep fried

Because after eating you, I put my skinny jeans on and cried

Is there a way to eat you every day?

And not have my waistline pay?

YES

Healthy Sweet and Sour Pork with Spaghetti Squash - Julies Eats and Treats

Okay, so the last line didn’t rhyme or anything, but the ode was asking me a question and it would have been rude not to give it an answer.

You understand. Maybe.

I really don’t need to tell you about the ah-may-zing feeling that I get when I go face-first into a big ol’ pile of Chow Mein and sweet and sour pork; I KNOW that you get it too.

And, if you don’t, who are you?

HOW-EV-ER, the way that my belly and, as mentioned in the ode, my pants feel after aforementioned going-face-first-into-plate-of-takeout? I NAT LIKE IT.

Obvi there needed to be a solution.

And, as you may guessed from the whole “YES” thing above, I have come up with one.

Healthy Sweet and Sour Pork with Spaghetti Squash - Julies Eats and Treats

One that is still ALL THE saucy…but uses a little bit of squashy.

Apparently I turned into the Dr.Seuss of takeout in the past few paragraphs.

I don’t even know.

Back to sweet and sour pork.

Opinion time: Spaghetti squash. Do you like it? Hate it? Does it confuse you that a vegetable is being called spaghetti so you don’t really know if it’s a pasta or if it TRULY is a vegetable and you don’t know what to believe about life anymore?

Overly dramatic run on sentences FTW.

I ADORE using spaghetti squash in place of noodles, and it worked SUPA well to absorb all the goodness in this dish.

Instead of breading the pork and deep frying it up to its eyeballs, I just grilled it. Healthy AND summer-ific.

You like it.

The sweet and sour sauce is pretty true to what you would be slurpin’ in traditional takeout, because you just don’t mess with some things right? Right.

Healthy Sweet and Sour Pork with Spaghetti Squash - Julies Eats and Treats

There you have it folks. Easy, healthy, takeout-fakeout that doesn’t need to be reserved for no-holds-barred weekend eating.

You could even make it on a MONDAY.

Things be gettin’ crazy.

Healthy Sweet and Sour Pork with Spaghetti Squash

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes

Yield: 4 Servings

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Pineapple juice
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Soy sauce
  • 3 Tbsp Rice Vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp Reduced-sugar Ketchup
  • 1/4 Cup + 3 Tbsp Brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 Cup + 2 Tbsp water
  • 1 Tbsp + 1 tsp Cornstarch *
  • 4 Pork chops (I use a lean center cut)
  • 1 Large spaghetti squash
  • 1 Large red bell pepper, cut into large chunks
  • 1 1/2 Cups Pineapple chunks, drained
  • Green onion, sliced (for garnish)

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the pineapple juice, soy sauce, rice vinegar, ketchup and brown sugar until well mixed and the sugar is dissolved. Place the pork chops into the bowl, cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
  2. To roast the squash:
  3. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  4. Cut the squash in half and scoop out all the seeds. Place the squash cut side down on the prepared tray and bake until it is fork tender, about 30-40 minutes. Let cool.
  5. To prepare:
  6. Preheat you grill to medium/high heat and place the pork chops, pineapple and red pepper chunks on it. Cook until the meat is no longer pink inside, but be sure to not cook it to long or it will be very dry. It takes about 2-4 minutes per side**. Transfer the pork, pineapple and pepper to a plate, cover and keep warm until the sauce is ready.
  7. To make the sauce:
  8. Pour the pineapple juice mixture that the meat was marinating in into a large sauce pan and add the water and cornstarch. Whisk quickly so that the cornstarch dissolves without getting lumpy.
  9. Turn the heat to high and bring the sauce to a boil, letting it boil until it begins to thicken (about 1 minute) stirring constantly.
  10. Turn the heat down to medium and cook, stirring frequently, until the sauce thickens - about 5-7 minutes more. Please note that it thickens up quite a bit, so don't cook it too long or you will have jello once it cools!
  11. To serve:
  12. Scrape the spaghetti squash out of it's shell with a fork and divide among plates. Top with pork, pineapple, pepper, sauce and garnish with sliced green onions.
  13. DEVOUR

Notes

*The sauce is not quite as thick and gummy as take-out restaurants (I like it better a little thinner.) If you want it really thick, add 1 more tsp of cornstarch **the pineapple may take less time to cook,so just watch to make sure that it doesn't burn!

Chicken BLT Wrap ~ Easy Wrap Perfect for Lunch or Dinner! Loaded with Grilled Chicken, Romaine Lettuce, Bacon, Tomatoes, Parmesan cheese and Mayo!

Summer is coming to an end.

*SIGH*

It’s so bittersweet. It kind of makes me want to cry but yet fall seems to slow down a little and I enjoy it so much. This year my hubs is planning to help my dad in the field so that should be interesting. That means him not being home until 11 pm or later and gone pretty much every night for a few months. I will become a single mom. Miss K will be seeing a lot of this face that’s for sure ! I hope she doesn’t get bored with my mug. She’s such a Daddy’s girl this is going to be rough on her and Mom. I envision a lot of tractor rides in our future!

Farming. It’s a lifestyle that’s for sure. One I grew up with and one that I’ll be honest, I’m not sure I want to embrace. There are definitely pros and cons to the whole thing, but somehow I focus on the cons. Such a pessimist aren’t I? There are tons of pros too!

Cheesy Zucchini Rice ~ Easy Side Dish for the Week Night Loaded with Rice, Zucchini & Cheese!

Every August our county fair happens and it’s pretty much the best event of the year in our small town. It’s a weekend filled tons of totally unhealthy food that’s is so amazing all in the same. Seeing old friends that come back for the event and catching up. Watching Miss K go on rides and thinking there is nothing better in the world and seeing her check out all the animals and get so, so excited. Screaming HI SHEEPIE HI!!! Ahhhhh the young excitement. I’m so glad I can still experience it through her.

Growing up the fair was pretty much my favorite thing in the world. I hear stories of me as a young child waiting and watching for the fair to come because I pretty much loved it. As I grew up I joined 4-H and got invovled that way. I had many projects from baking (duh!) to showing sheep. The days of the fair were filled with interviews, showing sheep, working the 4-H food stand with my club and hanging out with my friends. As I watch the kids now it makes me smile and it also makes me remember how much work that was! The early mornings of my parents dragging me out of bed so I can go work with my lambs to the records you had to prepare for the fair.
