National Poetry Month 24/30: Poetry Friday and Spaghetti

Thanks to Christie at Wondering and Wandering for all the Poetry Friday goodness today.

This National Poetry Month(NPM), I am writing and sharing original poems about food, family and feasts. Sundays will be a day to reshare a poem from the past. A list of links to previous poems is HERE.

My husband, Chuck, loves to make spaghetti, sausages, and meatballs. He lets is simmer long and slow. A tip for meatballs? Baked them in the oven. Serve with garlic bread. Delish.
