Did you even know there was a national spaghetti day? Neither did I until I ran upon this website that tells you what day has a special food day! So I thought I’d share with you a delicious 5-star homemade spaghetti recipe that I made New Year’s Eve night that is completely meatless. Who ever said that spaghetti had to have meat in it to be awesome?

I celebrated New Year’s Eve in style…with my dogs, cat, two guinea pigs, and a big bowl full of this 5-star homemade spaghetti recipe. Mr. Chef had to work New Year’s Eve night and Sister Chef went to a party with friends. I didn’t mind being home with the animals and doing my own thing. I just cuddled up in a blanket, next to the fire, with a big bowl of this awesome homemade spaghetti in my lap slurping it up like a dog, while flipping the TV channels between New York’s New Year’s Eve celebration and Ghost Adventures. It was exciting, let me tell you!

At Church today, a friend asked me what I did for New Year’s Eve and I told her I’m an old fogie and did nothing but hang out with the animals and watch TV. Then she asked “Did you fall asleep before midnight?” “Nope. I was up until 1 AM,” I said, “watching the ball drop and listening to fireworks explode outside.” (Notice I left out the Ghost Adventures part out. LOL.) “Well, you aren’t an old fogie, then,” she matter-of-factly informed me. “You aren’t an old fogie until you go to sleep before midnight.”

I liked that. So, I’m not an old fogie after all. I’ve still got a few years under my belt.
