Thanks everyone!
Oh Boy! It was a great time. I was told the kids were having dinner and a cake. they said this one and that one were coming, and that's why I figured just a small gathering.

Then when son Jimmy started carrying more folding chairs, I sort of started to wonder What the Heck??Then Tina's 92 yo aunt and uncle arrived.... and then My Friend and family from Pa.
That was it....now I knew it was a massive celebration. I was almost in tears. Seriously!!
Then my nephew and wife from Maryland. Then some of the neighbours!
It all happened so fast, and the kids and Tina did a great job planning and timing everything.

No one left hungry, and everyone was given take out containers of food.

Ho hum leftovers from the party food.
I had eggplant rollatini ....and a meatball!...

Tina had Swedish meatballs and mashed potatoes (again).

Gabe had a hungry man chicken dinner!

Would you believe we have to have a dinner and a cake tomorrow (AGAIN) for my real day of birth the 22nd. Apparently Tina and the kids don't know what celebrating on a different day means.

I mean, that is nice, but more work for Tina and the kids. These sweet people did enough Sunday.

We Having are angel hair and regular spaghetti with meatballs.
Tina made a tomato sauce and meatballs this morning.

The kids are picking up an ice cream cake at the Dairy Queen. Just a little one.

I haven't had spaghetti in weeks. And to think, I grew up on it just about every day, but a different way!

Everything sounds so good Jimmy except for the Dairy Queen. I don't know what they serve, but it isn't ice cream.

Wow Jimmy. Quite a spread. Everything looks great. Barbara, you pork shoulder looks really tasty too.

Tzatziki sauce to go with some mini pita rounds Cassie brought home from the store yesterday. We also has some rice which isn't pictured.

Today is Thursday.... Tina has a pot of Italian Wedding Soup cooking on the stove.
She went to walmart and got cold cuts. Provolone cheese / ham off the bone / and bologna and liverwurst.

The cold cuts at the Walmart are super fresh; because they move fast because of the lower costs.

The house smells great from the wedding soup cooking!!

We watch the food prices, and like the last week...Tina picked up Cabot Butter for $2.99 a pound. Land O Lakes which we use, was 4.29 a lb.
The only thing, is the Cabot Butter is a whole pound block; No individual sticks.
Who Cares?? I can use a knife.

The Walmart chopped beef is OK because it is consistent. It is pre packaged.
A little course ground, but we run it though the meat grinder to get it finer.
Tina won't buy the other steak cuts or roasts there, but we've heard people say they are not bad. ? ? ?

The meat looks odd to me.Like it was thrown in some machine.To make it tender.

I buy my ground chuck there and it is the best tasting around. I haven't tried anything else yet except for pork ribs and I think those were Farmer John's. They were very good too. What I refuse to buy anywhere is ground beef packaged in those chubs where you can't see inside the package. I think it is full of pink slime. Mystery meat. Never buy anything that says it is mechanically processed, like chicken nuggets, hot dogs etc. I watched a video and they throw the whole chicken in the grinder, feet, bones and some feathers. Seeing that would turn you into a vegetarian. I read where Smithfield hams and such (the biggest producer of pork in the country) has been bought by a Chinese company. They are going to ship US pork over to China, have it processed there and then ship it back to the US. They can say that it came from the USA on the label. Maybe so but not in my book. Anything that comes from China is suspect. They don't have the same quality control standards as the US.

I got some beef at Walmart a couple months ago. It was tough and chewy. I noticed some steaks at the Walmart in JC where I used to live that were labeled wrong (and priced wrong too.. Labeled at as a more expensive steak and more expensive price for a cheaper steak)

I have to make an Italian Calabrese style meat loaf!

Flattened / rolled out ground beef about 1/4 to 3/8 inch....slices of HB eggs / sausage fried and diced / mozzarella diced / provolone diced / spiced with oregano basil and lightly dusted with garlic powder and salt, and then rolled into a log. In a long pan / oiled liberally...then baked in the oven 350 till browned and the cheese starts oozing out. Around 60 to 90 minutes and watching closely after 60 minutes. Cooled to room temp, and then sliced and served on the side with spaghetti or macaroni's in tomato sauce.
