With all the ongoing sports being played at this time I think it is a great time to share with you one of my favorite meals that mom would cook on game night. Oh yes, she did cook and yes we were very involved in sports. Just like now our grand-kids play softball, soccer, basketball and hopefully the list will continue. Each sport has a beginning and an end and in the end the winner of the tournament is the champ. This is something that is taking place on the grand-stage presently in baseball, many highschool football teams are entering or will soon be entering playoffs and the cross-country runners will be needing to fuel up as well. The recipe I shared today mom always believed had the stuff to fuel us with energy again.
Baked Spaghetti was always my moms way of serving up game night. Doing her share, making sure we were there ready to play, get on the bus and do whatever it was we needed to do. It was her way of saying yes we would be playing and we would make the family proud. Now your time to put some carbs into your family and make sure they do the best they can

The recipe says, feeds 10 adults or small army. The one my mother would make would be doubled and she could feed the whole team and at times she would feed everyone that came together for one event or another. I simply hope that you Enjoy!!
