Ever since high school, I've kept all sorts of things in my happy box. There are cards, tickets, programs, drawings, and so much more. Every so often, I like to go through my things and reread cards, look through pictures, and throw out things I really don't need to keep. If you've sent me a card in the last decade or so, I probably still have it saved. I'm not quite sure what I expect to do with everything in the future. So many memories.

spaghetti and meatballs; pasta, tomato sauce, meatballs, tomatoes, onions, zucchini, cheese, salt, pepper.


It's an easy dinner when you're looking for something to eat. I cooked the pasta, tomato sauce, and meatballs separately. Then I roasted tomatoes and grilled the onions and zucchini. After they were done, I put them with the tomato sauce and added the meatballs. I let it simmer until it was nice and hot. Lastly, I finished it off with some grated cheese. It was delicious!
