Pre Thanksgiving Tradition – Spaghetti and Meatballs

The thing I love most about Thanksgiving is being together with family. It’s the one time of year we are all together, and the memories we are making for ourselves and our kids are priceless. We have many family traditions, and one of them is our pre Thanksgiving meal, Spaghetti and Meatballs on Wednesday night. Everyone is starved when they arrive and want something hearty and warm. Also, we all want something easy to make since the festivites of Thanksgiving day involve a lot of cooking and cleaning in the kitchen. Therefore, we have all grown to love our pre Thanksgiving tradition of spaghetti and meatballs.
