When I was a kid, my then best friend who I think was named Lisa, invited me over for dinner one night.  Her mom made fried spaghetti which was everything amazing and world-altering for my eight year old self.  It was basically cooked spaghetti noodles fried in a mountain of butter until crispy and then […]
