Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is!!!

Need to stretch your spaghetti into several DIFFERENT meals instead of eating spaghetti for an entire week?  Here are some great options to choose from:

First night - spaghetti - obviously!  =)  Store your meat sauce and spaghetti noodles in separate containers.

Second night - Sloppy Joes with the spaghetti meat.  My daughter and I had these last night - YUMSKI, people!!!  Toast some buns, heat up your spaghetti sauce and load it onto the toasted buns (or regular bread if that is what you have), top with a slice of cheese.  If you want more of a sloppy joe flavor - just add a touch of ketchup.  =)  Serve with french fries, salad, chips, you name it!!

Third night - stirfry!  Sautee your leftover spaghetti noodles in some olive oil and soy sauce.  Toss in some sauteed veggies (whatever you have around - frozen, fresh - doesn't matter!), add some chicken, shrimp, pork or perhaps some steak tips and any oriental style sauce you have - teriyaki is best, but adding a little more soy sauce and some ground ginger will work.  Ta-da!!!  You have an AWESOME stirfry meal.

  1. I might do this one night! I found you on Network your blog HERE and am now following you. I hope you will take a moment to stop by my blog and check out my kind of fashion (hair jewelry). I'm not just trying to gain followers with hopping, I'm trying to spread the word about a product I love. Here's my url I also have a facebook page which is I hope you can stop by there as well. It's the fastest way to hear about specials.
