Healthy dinners (my version)

Didn't realize that Splenda can brulee. This is great. :)

Is that spaghetti squash? I think that's what I'll have for dinner tomorrow.

Hope all is well.

Ack, no no no! Sorry--I used real sugar for the topping, but Splenda in the actual custard. From what I've read, Splenda doesn't really burn unless it's the baking version, which is half sugar; in that case, the sugar will burn. I'm glad you mentioned that--I'll have to amend my caption! =)
