Worms For Dinner
When I was a kid, I used to love that book How to Eat Fried Worms. Maybe it was reading the book multiple times that ignited a little mischief in me the other night. Pierce said, "Mom! What's for dinner?" as I worked away at the stove. "Worms," I casually responded. Reid, listening in, said in a whiny 3 year old voice, "Mooooooooommm! WORMS ARE YUCKY!" And Pierce said, "Mom, we're not REALLY having worms, are we?" To which I giddily lifted my bowl and said, "Sure we are, look!"
spaghetti squash worms, lovingly tossed with parmesan, garlic salt, and a bit of butter. But then soon enough my twin three year olds were happily declaring, "Mom! Worms are YUMMY! I like worms!" As for me...well....I had to agree!

Liked that, it was a cute story! Great way to get them to try something new too!!
We love spaghetti squash here! Although, I have never called it worms :-) It definitely sounds like a fun idea though, that my kids will love!
Great way to get them to eat their veggies. Looks delicious.
We love acorn squash, but once in a while change it up and have the spaghetti squash. It's pretty yummy too. But worms? Nope... not in this house.
Now I want a bowl of worms. B
Haha! I just love your style!
lol what adventurous boys to give them a try! i read that book to growing up :)
That could have backfired, ya know. :)
That is my favorite dinner!!! YUM!!!
Ha, good one! It's nice that the boys tried it and found out they liked 'worms'. You've got some adventurous boys!
Very cute, and I like worms too. What fun for your kids!
LOL.... Now they will tell all their friends their mom feeds them worms. I love spaghetti squash!!
Sounds like you are creating some funny memories! :)
Way to work their propensity for grossness!
The worms look really good! :-)
After reading this, Lisa, I like worms too! Very yummy!!
I love love love spaghetti squash! Especially with parmesan cheese and roasted red peppers. Mmm Mmm! Calling it "Worms" is a great way to get kids to eat it!
It certainly looks delish! Those guys are gonna be asking for this on a regular basis, I bet!! :)
P.S. Thanks for your message yesterday, it meant a lot.
I have to say I like worms too.
i like spaghetti squash too - tho i never fix it myself. :)
Haha so cute! I've only tried spaghetti squash once before, but I loved it! I need to make it again.
Ever since your friend, Becky, told me about that squash with sauce on it, I love it!...:)JP
You feed them "worms" aka spaghetti squash and I feed them acorn grubs...aka acorn grubs. Reid swallowed three at a time this morning and chomped them down with a big smile on his face! Lol.
Worms to look yummy! I love spaghetti squash!
When you were a child you read that book? I saw that movie and read the book with my grandson a couple years ago. I am so much older than you. I loved it though.
I have been meaning to try this for YEARS! But I am still deciding on the many ways to cook the squash, how do you do it? Plus I would also like your whole recipe, then I would KNOW it will turn out good. And maybe I can be six once again for just an evening
I've never had spaghetti squash but have wanted to try it ...... Now I definitely do!
This made me smile! And I love spaghetti squash too - you just made me hungry.
You are such a fun mom!! These types of posts from you always make me smile. :)
Oh yes- the best worms ever especially with cheese on them!
They look good to me! I do have to find me some Squash, I never seem to see it in the stores.
Truth be told, it happened couple of times for me, that I stopped eating just because the food started to look funny in my imagination :))
I love worms! LOL I hope they don't go outside and eat worms out of the ground now. ;)
I mix it with egg and parmesan cheese, put it in a glass pie plate and cook it at 350 until it's cooked. Then I add tomato sauce, cottage cheese, garlic, onions, sometimes Italian sausage and Mozzarella cheese on top. The boys aren't fans, but my husband and I love it. The boys aren't fans of pasta in general. I can't believe they are my children when it comes to that.
I always forget how much I like spaghetti squash. I think I just may have to pick myself up one next time I am at the store. I'll have to try the parm cheese on it, i've never had it that way. YUM!
Those kinds of worms ARE yummy! And I read that book several times as a child. Loved it!
Yum! Those worms are good!
