Stemming back to my childhood, Wednesday night has always been spaghetti night in our house. My mom started this tradition as a way to survive the hectic, busy Wednesday rush between school and evening activities. And when you throw in my Italian heritage, a meaty marinara sauce over a steaming bowl of noodles was simply perfect.
But, believe it or not, spaghetti night needed an upgrade.
We buy our ground beef in bulk from a local farmer (or sometimes Costco) and store it in the freezer. While this saves us incredibly money, it does require remembering to thaw my meat.
Which is something I’m TERRIBLE at.
