Easy Spaghetti Recipe Your Family Will Love

Ingredients List

1 package spaghetti noodles

1 lb hamburger

3 cans of tomato sauce (8oz cans)

1 can tomato past (6oz can)

1 tbsp garlic salt

1 tbsp Italian seasoning

1 tsp onion powder

How To Make This Delicious Recipe

First of all brown the meat in a pan then strain.  After that put the meat back into the pan and add the 3 cans of tomato sauce and 1 can of tomato paste. Stir the sauce as you add the garlic salt, Italian seasoning and onion powder.  Leave on low for 15-20 min so that the meat absorbs the flavor.

Once you have made the sauce all you have left is the noodles.  While waiting for the sauce you can start a pot of water and set it to boil.  Once it has come to a boil add the noodles.  You will know the noodles are ready when you can take one out and pinch it in half.  The noodle should easily pinch into two smaller noodles.  Because the noodles are hot you will want to make sure to take out the one noodle and let is cool a bit before pinching it.  In order to serve, strain the noodle and put on plates.  Finally, place the sauce on the noodles and gather everyone around!  Now you have a delicious dinner everyone can enjoy!

How To Tie Dye Coffee Filters

Gathering Ingredients

Here are the tools you will need to get this craft started.

food coloring

straws or droppers

an ice cube tray

coffee filters


Most of the ingredients were already in my home.  Because we don’t drink coffee in my house I had everything except  coffee filters.  We also didn’t have an ice cube tray.  To make this a free project I got some coffee filters from a friend and they also gave me an ice cube tray.  You also may be able to find an ice cube tray at the dollar store as well as some of the other ingredients.

Tie Dying the Coffee Filters

First of all put a little bit of water in the ice cube tray.  After that you will put a few drops of food coloring in each ice cube spot.  Stir the water/food coloring mixture.  Then take out the coffee filters and straws or droppers and flatten the coffee filters.  After that dip the straw or dropper into the food coloring.  Once you have the food coloring mixture in the straw or dropper slowly let out the food coloring mixture onto a flat coffee filter.

The trick to using a straw is to dip the straw into the mixture and place a finger at the top of the straw so that the mixture remains in the straw until you release your finger and it falls onto the coffee filter.  Droppers may be easier for younger hands.

Although this is a messy project it is fun and really easy to do!  One idea for this craft is to have it as a family home evening activity!   After the lesson you could do this simple craft then have treats!  Your kids will love it!
