Spaghetti a la Mom

I usually miss college. Don't most people look back on that time as "the best in their lives." One thing that made it "the best" is that you were surrounded by thousands of other people your age doing pretty much the same thing all the time.
My sister Al is in her fourth year of a five-year architecture program at K-State in Manhattan (Kansas). Ever since she moved out of the dorms and into an apartment/house, she and her roommates (here pictured: Steph, Carrie, Sam and Allison) have set up a routine where one person cooks for all of them every day of the week. I never thought this would last through the first few weeks of school, but the girls are keeping it up. It's a pretty sweet deal, I'd say. You only have to cook one time and you get to eat and hang out every time.

Al's roommate Sam brought each of the girls aprons from her grandma. Love it.

Last week Al made what she aptly called Spaghetti a la Mom, which is the classic red, meat sauce that we grew up with. Since I've already written about it here, I'll give an even better recipe for Garlic Bread a la Mom.

Garlic Bread: 1/4 cup butter 1 teaspoon garlic salt 2 tablespoons parmasan cheese sprinkle of paprika sprinkle of parsley loaf of French bread sliced lengthwise

In a bowl mash up the butter, garlic salt, cheese, paprika and parsley. All the spices should be added to taste, so these measurements are educated guesses and should be used as a guide. Spread butter mixture on bread. Toast bread in oven at 400 degrees for 8 minutes or until the edges are slightly browned and cheese is melted.
