Spaghetti Spaghetti

Bea has been busy, busy, busy lately ~ babysitting her dear little grands all this week. As her grandson says: Grandma's house is so funnilarious! They've been having the time of their lives, I'm sure.

Hi folks! Bessie here. I had a chance to have some fun when I was caring for my great nephew and niece. We had a rip roaring time. The poor souls didn't know what "playing hooky" was until I was in charge! Don't worry dearies, I didn't actually allow them to play hooky while their Mama and Papa were gone, but we got into plenty of mischief anyway.

One day when they got home from a long hard day at school, I announced that it was Spaghetti Spaghetti Night. We started off the festivities by having a lovely sit down dinner: Spaghetti with Meat Sauce, Garlic Toast, Peas and Green Salad. To drink we had the finest wine (Kool-Aid) available this side of the Rockies! The little ones were thrilled to be treated to such a grown up dinner.
For dessert, I served them a Spaghetti Cake. If you can believe it, all the ingredients came from the Dollarama! At the end of the meal, my nephew gave me a big compliment. He declared: "You're a good cook! Your food tastes better than restaurant food!" That's high praise from an 11 year old.
Alas the week passed quickly and soon it was time to say so long to the kids. We survived the week quite nicely ~ I mean, there was the obligatory visit to Chuck E Cheese, and the little tooth fairy incident, but really nothing too bad happened.
