    I'm sorry twinredheads.

    That place was VERY nice. They served various pizza's (standard cheese and pep and well as buffalo chicken and veggie pizzas), bbq ribs (fall off the bone!!), an avocado egg roll (a bit spicy but good), and brussel sprouts. Everything was amazing. Then they brought out a "pizzookie" (pizza cookie) and vanilla ice cream....amazing!! They even had a gluten free one. The beers were amazing. I'm so not a beer person but I did have three and they were all "house made" one was the "oasis" and the other was a pink berry cider (only available month of october) all in all I would totally go again......not sure about cost as everything (even drinks) were paid for by the company that hosted. It was a great night :)

    twinredheads - that is too bad about the overcooked squash!

    raesmom1612 - I hope you had fun at the brewery!

    Faye- Thanks for the suggestion. I ran across that one two. I ended up finding a great recipe but, unfortunately, the squash overcooked in the Crockpot so the texture was really poor. I'm saving the recipe because the flavors were good.

    RAESMOM-Would love to hear a review on that place. I have watched them build it for the last couple of months and saw it had opened.

    Good luck with the spaghetti squash twinredheads.

    Tonight the family is having Dominos and I am out at a work function where I'm told there will be plenty of food. Its at BJ's brewhouse in Cary. Never been but looking forward to it :)

    twinredheads - I just ran across this recipe for Buffalo Chicken Spaghetti Squash and it looked really good.

    Our meeting this afternoon got rescheduled because DH is stuck at work. We will probably do a pizza from somewhere I have a coupon for (local places).

    I have a whole spaghetti squash in the slow cooker that will be finished when I get home tonight. Not sure how I'm going to serve it. I'm getting tired of having it with spaghetti sauce or just garlic and butter. Any suggestions out there? I'm serving it as a main course. Can be vegetarian or meat based.
