Spaghetti and Meatballs with Tomato Sauce

One of my more embarrassing moments.  I can't find my Modern Classics 1 by Donna Hay.  I searched my house and it is no where to be found yet I remember exactly where I put it or at least, I thought I did.

This is not the first time, I misplaced it.  One time, I did the house search and finally after two or three days, found it in my son's bedroom, which is now a guest room.  We have a computer in there and evidently, I went in there to check something out with book in hand.  I left without it and forgot completely about taking if from its designated spot.

The next time, I misplaced this book, I found it in our den.  I had gone to chat with hubby, again, book in hand and put it down.  Once again, I walked away without Donna's hard work and also found it a few days later.

Where did I take it this time?  I will let you know when I locate it.

You would think, I didn't like Donna Hay, the way I lose her book so often.  On the other hand, it is because, I use it so often that I lose it.  

This week, we made good old spaghetti and meatballs in tomato sauce, chosen by   Margaret, and since I was able to locate the recipe elsewhere, I cooked with the group.  Although, these were not highly spiced, they had a distinctive flavor which we love.  In truth, it is difficult to ruin spaghetti and meatballs.  Donna certainly did not.  Another success from our pal, Donna.

Check out the other Donna cooks and see what they have made.

  1. I think everyone loves this old time favorite. Growing up, we had it every Sunday night.

  2. I liked this one too. I have not misplaced cookbooks but I have misplaced plenty of other things while walking around with them.

  3. This is my husband's favourite.
    Hope you find your cookbook soon!

  4. Hope you find the cookbook, Chaya. I don't mind losing one I don't use a lot but one I do - different story! Glad you liked it.

  5. We do chicken meatballs and I love them. Love them.

    Yours looks good too. Happy eating, cooking and a great big boogie boogie to you.
