Spaghetti Night!

At our house spaghetti is a HUGE favorite... maybe its because its a good hearty meal, or maybe its because its pasta (and I just LOVE pasta), but I think the biggest reason we all love spaghetti around here is because I have my Mom's spaghetti recipe that is Ah-Mazing!!
Chad had never experienced the amazing goodness of Gigi's Spaghetti until Friday night. We decided that since he is eating table food like a pro now that we would let him get messy and feed himself. This was probably the funniest thing I have ever seen.
Here is Chad at the beginning of the meal... you can tell because there isn't sauce all over his face
A little apprehensive about the whole thing but "trying" it

This face just makes me smile!

And this one... well... I think this is one of those pictures that you save for black mail. We aren't quite sure why he didn't pick the spaghetti up with his hands but he began to get very frustrated because he wasn't getting any using this method. Finally Gerod just had to feed him.

I am pretty sure he LOVED it! What do you think?!?

If you want my spaghetti recipe it is as follows:
1lb ground hamburger meat
1 tbsp minced/chopped garlic
1 can tomato sauce
1 can tomato soup
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1-2 tbsp Italian Seasoning
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
Cook the hamburger meat with the garlic and drain once cooked through. Add tomato sauce, tomato soup, and cream of mushroom soup and mix until well blended on medium heat. Once everything is well blended add the Italian Seasoning and nutmeg and let the sauce simmer over low-med heat for about 10 min.
Serve over noodles! :) YUM-OH!
I love serving this with Mom's salad that we have named "Sabrina Salad"
Lettuce (I usually use Romain lettuce in the bag so I don't have to chop it... I'm lazy)
1 cup slivered almonds
1 cup Parmesan cheese
Italian dressing
Cook almonds on low-med heat until they are a toffee color and then remove from heat. Once they start creating a nutty smell they are almost done and WILL burn quickly *I know this from experience!* ;)
Once the almonds are cooled down mix lettuce, almonds and Parmesan cheese in a bowl. Add the Italian dressing right before serving the salad.
Hope you enjoy the recipe! Tell me what you think about it if you try it out!
