You are Such a Meatball!

On top of spaghetti,
All covered with cheese,
I lost my poor meatball,
When somebody sneezed.

It rolled off the table,
And on to the floor,
And then my poor meatball,
Rolled out of the door.
It rolled in the garden,
And under a bush,
And then my poor meatball,
Was nothing but mush.

The mush was as tasty
As tasty could be,
And then the next summer,
It grew into a tree.
The tree was all covered,
All covered with moss,
And on it grew meatballs,
And tomato sauce.

So if you eat spaghetti,
All covered with cheese,
Hold on to your meatball,
Whenever you sneeze.

We all know that Giada loves her meatballs.  And so do we!  Whether you decide to carefully place them on top of spaghetti...float them in a bowl of soup...pile them into a bun...or scatter them on a pizza...just bring on the meatballs!  That's right, head into the kitchen with Giada and start rolling.  It's all about the meatballs this week!

Meatballs can be made to go into a whole meal or,hey the meatballs be just the meal itself.Should be tasty!

Giada and I went Mediterranean / Middle Eastern pairing her turkey meatballs with her Israeli Couscous with Apple, Cranberries & Herbs. It was yum. ;-)
