If you are a famous cat created by a man from Indiana, who are you? Here are a few hints, you love spaghetti. And Pizza. And anything Italian. Yep, you guessed it, Garfield. I am starting to believe Garfield and my son might be two peas in a pod. He likes everything in the latest cookbook I am reviewing from Gooseberry Patch.

The results. Awesome. I even used frozen meatballs and no one noticed. Or cared. Or both. Regardless, a big batch of Good Ol' Spaghetti and Meatballs for every one of my swimmers to fill up on!
