Over a Cup of Coffee: Unusual Spaghetti Recipes

Last week I wrote about a recipe that I used to make when I hadn’t been married too long. This week I was thinking about when I used to make a spaghetti casserole that had hot dogs on top.

When it comes to the chore involved with calving, the cow-checking is probably the most draining so when that’s finished, I’m grateful.
