...people head to Burger King afterwards!! LOL
I tried making spaghetti & meatballs, and I've made this numerous times with great success in the past. In fact, it's been a favorite staple dinner in our house for years.
I especially love to let the saucy meatballs percolate in the crock pot for the day.
HOWEVER, I've been on this organic food kick lately. My older DD became a vegetarian a few years ago, which deepened my investigations into fresher foods.
After reading the book Skinny Bitch recently, I furthered my efforts to buy foods in a healthier way.
Lest I put off a certain unappreciated vibe, let's just be clear that I'm not really trying to be "skinny" or a "bitch"- just heard this book had good information!!
I'm much more interested in just doing the best I can to feed my family as healthily as I can afford.
One downside to this fresher, greener eating is a slightly different food bill. And another downside would be starting to experiment with the brands out there & not having many people to ask, "Which brand do you think tastes great?"
So I bought this organic spaghetti, and I'm thinking it was made out of some kind of freeze-dried veggies, so that when it hit water for the directed time of 4.5 minutes, it immediately became mush.
Our spaghetti was in 1-2" pieces & tasted very much like cardboard.
