Jade and I discussed meatballs Saturday afternoon. I heard someone talking about Chef Boyardee in the grocery store that morning, and it occurred to me that spaghetti and meatballs would be the perfect dinner for us that night. I bought all the supplies, intending to surprise her.

“I’ve got a surprise, sweetums!” I said around 3:30. “I’m making spaghetti and meatballs tonight!”
