Father's Day Favorite

Happy Day! As I get ready to post, it is Father's Day 2010 AND I'm 2000 miles from home celebrating it with not only my husband/our kids' dad, but with our son and his family--him a new father this year. His little Nicholas is now 5 weeks old--and we're having our first visit together. Oh, it's been so much fun to meet--and cuddle--him.

So in honor of all these good things, I'm going to post one of the family's favorite recipes, something we "girls"are going to put together here in a bit for our guys. It is a tradition for special occasions and there's no reason to break the tradition now. Even if we had to come so far to make it.

(By the way, in case son-in-law happens to read this, we will do the same for you when we get back :-)

We call it Spaghetti Loaf, and it is--yes--spaghetti, and cheeses baked in the shape of a loaf (think meatloaf) that, when done, is sliced down and smothered with homemade pizza sauce. Yummm. It's a recipe I came across in the newspaper many years ago. It was an instant hit then, and continues to be a family favorite today.

Here's the recipe:

This may have nothing to do with writing, but the fun is bubbling over, somewhat like a pot of pizza sauce simmering on the stove.

Dessert favorite is Blueberry Cheesecake. But I'll have to share that another time.

Happy Father's Day!


  1. Everything was so good!!! Thanks!!!Baby Nicholas sends a kiss!

  2. Hmmm...does that mean in order to fit into the Girls Club I must learn to cook S.L.? Again, if hubby reads this, that would be a resounding YES!!! which I can hear all the way from Evendale (work)...
