Post Philly Bloggrrrlllzz Wednesday Spaghetti, the lovely Lora invited us all to begin our own Wednesday Spaghetti tradition.
Wednesday Spaghetti is so hardcore it has its own mission statement:
“Wednesday Spaghetti was formed to increase public awareness of the need for families, caregivers, and peer groups to spend quality time together in an in-home, casual dining setting in order to discuss general life issues, household guidelines and practices, personal habits, issues, and goals, educational habits, issues, and goals, employment habits, issues and goals, family habits, issues, and goals, physical health-related issues, emotional health-related issues, spiritual issues, relationship issues, community events and resources, and other such topics; to support and conduct nonpartisan research, educational and informational activities to increase public awareness of the importance of togetherness, communication, and good nutrition; to provide simple to make, nutritious meals to any family or group in the community, regardless of race, color, creed, religious beliefs, ethnicity, economic status, or location at no cost to the family or group.”
Which translated to:
“Come to my house and eat spaghetti. Bring friends and kids. It’s not a dinner party, it’s just spaghetti. Don’t dress up.”
And come to my house they did…who would have thought that 30 people would be free on a Wednesday evening with less than a week’s notice?
While I might not be making Wednesday Spaghetti a weekly institution, I am going to shoot for once a month.
