What we'll do for our spouses. He was right the right knife makes all the difference. (Not related).

I'll get the knife part of our the way first. I enjoy a spaghetti squash from time to time but haven't been having them lately because I can't cut them in half any more. My husband saw the knife I was using which I use for most of my kitchen tasks. It was a steak knife. He suggested one of the longer knives that most cooks would be more familiar with than I am. It took me three different knives before I found one I could work with. First I poked a hole in the squash and nuked it a bit then tried to cut it. I also used a hammer because there's not a lot of strength in my hands and I need to save them for work. Now I can eat them once again. I'm having spaghetti squash with pesto on top for supper. My husband loves asparagus and it was on sale for $.99 per pound this week. He bought one bunch. He doesn't like them crunchy so wanted them cooked in water before we fried or baked them which I did earlier today. When I checked them they seemed cooked enough but later when I was putting them into the baking dish I discovered the tops were soft but the bottoms weren't. I separated the two sections and he'll get mostly the tops while I'll eat the bottom section. I'm going to have a small portion of the tops but I'm not picky and should be fine with the bottoms. He's eating spaghetti with marinara sauce and we're both having the asparagus.
