Italian Food

There is an Italian restaurant close to our house. It has great spaghetti.

Char and I went there tonight, it was ‘All You Can Eat’ night. Their special is a great deal for us. You get soup or salad, a large plate of spaghetti, two large pieces of meat (we usually get a sausage and a meatball), garlic bread, and a pitcher of great tasting sauce for about eight dollars. They will bring you all the spaghetti you want.

We usually get the special and tell the server to just bring us a to go box. We know we’re not going to be able to eat all they bring out, much less ask for more. We usually leave full and with a pound or two of leftovers.

The place isn’t fancy. If you’re trying to impress someone, avoid this place. But, it’s clean, the food is good, and you rarely have to wait. It’s a nice place to take friends and family – except of course Tiffany. Even though we started at an early age, we were never able to teach her how to eat spaghetti.

Okay, maybe we did - this picture was taken in 1986.

Tiffany's cute. Some people just don't get the hang of eating spaghetti, I just put all in my mouth that will go and suck up the rest of the loose ones that hang.
You might could teach her that. I doubt if the years can help her, she looks helpless. But enjoying her food.

Happy Ides of March, I almost missed it.

Rinse that to go box out and take it to the buffet next time. That works real good too.

We learn best by watching our parents.
Yes, happy March 15th.

It is always nice to have a restaurant that sticks around that long, we have a Chinese restaurant that has done that for us, memories of our oldest eating her first food there, tofu out of the hot and sour soup.

Adorable picture.

Ahhh...that's cute Ralph!! She is having fun picking it up and poking it in and around her mouth! She'll thank you for posting this!

I'll bet she has learned how to eat it properly by now!

I still look similar to this when we have spaghetti, but I have improved a little bit
