Finger Foods : Spaghetti Balls
My Little Daughter is Mad about Spaghetti, she loves it so much that she shares with her Clothes as well. Hmm!!! But at the end of the day she enjoys it. This is what has made me think about a way to eat Spaghetti by which you dont have to mess-up with your Kids Clothes and they will enjoy to eat it too.
