Thanks, Judy, for the helpful info on your wonderful recipe (among many others of yours I have enjoyed!) I will use the 9 x 13 pan and serve directly from the pan. Our 5 apple trees are loaded this year (after last year's pitiful harvest) and Apple Dapple Cake will be a favorite way to enjoy apples.

For Elizabeth southeast Ga, wanting
suggestions for sides and desserts to accompany her Polynesian Chicken, consider Chinese coleslaw, a lettuce salad with various dressings available, your favorite rolls, and for desserts mini cheesecakes, a chocolate cake, a trifle, or even a cookie platter. I am assuming the Polynesian Chicken includes rice, if not a rice pilaf would be great.

Cooking and eating Spaghetti Squash
I have never pre spiced mine while first cooking it, as I never know until I start dinner what flavor I want. 77 year old bachelors do cook that way.

So far I have used spaghetti sauces, various Mexican style hot sauces and salsas.. and many of the marinade, and rub spices that are used for BBQ, I just use them dry and use a shaker to cover the squash, (I don't add any of the oils or juices that they call for on the directions for use on meats).

DON'T add any extra salt, if you use the BBQ flavors... Until you have tasted the squash.

On occasion I will just use Sea Salt, and pepper, and have put various cheeses on them, Parmesan is served as is, the others are usually melted.
Also I have used various spaghetti sauces poured over the squash. I have put butter in a pan and fry the squash as much as I can, and put two fried eggs on the top and serve that way, with spicy sauces on the side, some jalapeno based. Pace or other Hot hot sauces and salsas, such as Pineapple salsa, Peach Salsa.. Very good with them.

Sometimes I try to get out as much water out of the squash, so I can just fry it like a potato pancake. I use a high heat to try to sear the bottom, usually not too successful turning them over. Just thought about maybe adding some egg white to them?? And they fry them.

Next time I think I will cook the squash upside down, prick them all over on the inside, and use its own water to steam cook them, in a zip lock bag, To hopefully get them quite a bit less wet.
