Tasty Tuesday: Spaghetti Squash and Meatballs





This is one of my favorite go to recipes when the family is craving some Italian (and I don't have to feel guilty after having a plate or two).


Ingredients:

-Spaghetti Squash      1 Large or 2 Medium (a medium squash is around 3lbs) 

-Jar of your favorite Spaghetti Sauce (we love Classico Sauces over here)

-Our grocery store butcher makes "ready to bake" meatballs fresh or you can make your own following the recipe below.


Meatballs

Squash
- Cut your squash lengthwise and scoop out the membranes and seeds.  

-Place the halves cut side down in a baking dish and fill with just a little water (about an inch)

-Bake in the oven at 400 degrees for 35-45 minutes


Meatballs
  1. -Combine all ingredients and shape into 20-24 meatballs (1 to 1-1/2 inches each).
  2. -To oven bake: Place in ungreased 9x13 pan (you may want to line it with foil for easier clean-up).
  3. -Bake 20-25 min or until light brown and cooked through; turn meatballs halfway through, if desired, to help maintain a round shape.


 -Once the squash is done remove from the water and take a fork to gently scrape. The flesh will separate easily into spaghetti like strands. 



- After baking your meatballs remove and add them plus your sauce to the bowl of spaghetti. Mix it all together, top with parmesan cheese and enjoy!

One Room Challenge (Week 6) Dining Room REVEAL

It's week SIX! Our dining room is officially done and the One Room Challenge has come to an end...
Check out all the ORC reveals here....Guest Participants Before I get into all the pictures I want to thank my partners on this project! Without them this room would never have come together as it did!  So a BIG "thank you" to 
Lexmod Furniture WallPops Bealls Outlet
Lets start off by taking a look back six weeks at the dining room "Before".


The room sat pretty empty for a few months after we moved in but now it is anything but empty! 
She's all DONE!



When I come down the stairs now I can't help but love my new view! I am so happy I went with the side accent wall and not the wall opposite the window!  I think it makes the room feel bigger.

Treetopia's Merry CHIC-Mas Blog Hop

I am so excited to share that Sunny Chic Home is a part of the 2017 Treetopia Christmas Blog Hop!
This years theme couldn't be more perfect... Treetopia's Merry CHIC-Mas!
 Treetopia wants to help you add some sparkle to your holidays by celebrating a glitz and glam Christmas with the Treetopia bloggers!
I am kicking off the season with a very Merry CHIC-Mas themed master bedroom! Make sure to check out the four other fabulous bloggers this week!

You all know by now I love me some Christmas spirit in the bedroom and in our new home the master is light and bright so I wanted to continue that in the holiday decor.
  I chose to use the GORGeous Treetopia 7' prelit Tinkerbell Silver Christmas Tree. The silvery tinsel tips add such a magical touch and the width of 47" make the tree such a great piece and perfect CHIC-mas addition to any room.

EASY Master Closet Makeover...I'm talking NO tools needed!

As most of you know a couple weeks ago I got so sick and tired of my crazy disaster of a master closet I decided to take on organizing it....however not just cleaning it out.  I needed to come up with a better closet system for my husband and I.  
Originally I thought "Hey, I'll take down all these rods and buy a closet system that drills into the wall...and it will be so fun and easy!"
HAHAHAHAHA.  Yeaaaaaa right! Those bad boys are expensive and who is kidding who here I can barely use a drill.  SO then I decided to look for simple closet systems that would solve the issues we had in our closet.  Which were:
1. Shoes 2. Purses 3. Hats
These three issues were what really dragged it down and made it look like a hurricane swept through.  You can take a look at the "BEFORE" pics below as long as you promise not to judge!  I originally told you all I wasn't going to share my "befores" but a lot of you got a little angry at me..and you were totally right.  …
