I remember back when my birthday would last an entire month…not just one day. I remember that far back because last year, (when I was 8 1/2 months preggo), was the first year my birthday didn’t last a whole month. In fact, it barely lasted at all..I worked a 12 hour shift that day…we went to dinner, but of course I was exhausted from being on my feet all day, being the size of a whale, and the only cocktails involved were virgin. I guess I got Lucky having 22 years of month long celebrations…I am grateful for them, because they are forever gone…this Thursday its my birthday, and I will be working and my fiance is writing about 12 different research papers in five days. boo. We’re getting all glammed up and going out Friday night, so I’m kind of using that as my birthday celebration!
Its funny because I completely forgot about my birthday..Ive been so focused on planning my sons first birthday party, it almost slipped my mind until I realized today is May 1st…funny how things change 🙂 I’m so glad they did!
So remember last week when I told you I was a single girl for four days..my fiance had to go away for training…well his training involved being in the woods for four days..cold, rainy, and wet. So when he came home Sunday night, I could think of nothing better to make than a nice hot, hearty, home cooked, comfort food of spaghetti & meatballs! What a happy man he was! Ive made meatballs plenty of times..Ive even blogged about them before…but these babies were the best I have had to date! And the sauce..mmm it was so flavorful, a hint of heat, and the perfect accompaniment to these divine meatballs..I could smell them in my house for the few hours before I went to pick him up…my little guy and I couldn’t keep our fingers out..we just kept munching! You want to make these, they are SO wonderful! Perfect Italian dinner!
