On Top of Spaghetti:  Frankies Spuntino Meatballs Recipe

frankies-meatballs-12

As I sat down to write this post, to my utter frustration, the words just wouldn’t flow – words I liked, that is.  I couldn’t think of any cute meatball stories or anecdotes, or pithy, witty commentary.  To be honest, all that kept running through my head was a song that I remembered loving as a child.  Don’t you just hate when that happens?  You get a tune stuck in your head and you just can’t shake it loose, no matter how hard you try!  So, I decided to turn lemons into lemonade and just go with it. 

When I was putting this together, I realized that I was really enjoying myself.  I actually may  create posts like this more often.  A day and a half of aggravation turned into a total win-win.  I had a bunch of fun and got my meatball post up.  And you, dear readers, get some nice pictures, a cute song and a fabulous meatball recipe – all without having to wade through a lot of verbosity.  

Enjoy!
