Cheeseburger Zucchini Boats

Winter is here!!!! :) We had snow yesterday and I love it!!! It is mostly melted now but still, snow falling is one of my favorite things!!! It is just so beautiful!!! :) 

Good news -- Yesterday was my first alone day with the kiddos. That is right, no help and I made it without any contractions!!! I even prepared a delicious meal that everyone enjoyed! Yesterday was a good day!!! 

Towards the end of each pregnancy I begin to crave cheeseburgers. I think mainly the burger and cheese! :) Yesterday was a craving day and I came up with this take! 
Don't those good yummy!!! Much better than a bun or even lettuce!!!

The Ingredients:
2 medium sized zucchinis - center scooped out
1 small onion, diced
1 lb ground beef
1 can of tomato sauce (homemade or store bought)
basil, nutmeg, garlic

EXTRAS - black beans, olives, tomatoes, green peppers or even jalapenos.

The Directions:
Scoop out the middle of the zucchini. Cut zucchini inside into smaller pieces and set aside.
Brown meat and diced onion until the meat is completely browned. Drain grease.
Add zucchini pieces and any extras to pan and begin to cook. After 2 minutes add the meat back to the pan and mix together. Add tomato sauce and seasonings.

Scoop meat mixture into zucchini boats and top with cheese.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes uncovered or until the zucchini boat is tender.
