one of our ninangs hold this tradition of having spaghetti for dinner every friday. their house would be open for everybody --- friends, friends of friends, classmates, neighbors, co workers, fellow church goers, etc.. and their kids. anyone is welcome to drop by for dinner and even help with the cooking and clean-up. it's all informal. dinner is anytime between sun down until the late hours. you don't have to bring a gift or anything. you don't even need an invitation. just drop by, ring the bell, go straight to the kitchen and serve yourself. several batches of sauce is made and the pot never gets empty. guests bring home whatever is left over. hubby and i intend to follow this tradition. we plan to have spaghetti or any pasta dish, for that matter for dinner every friday (so technically we should call it "pasta night") but since our son really loves this daddy's spaghetti recipe (more about that next time) we'll stick to "spaghetti night" for now. in the long run, maybe we could diversitfy with different sauces and pastas. cooking spaghetti would be as enjoyable as eating it. oh, considering the security as well as economic issues, our spaghetti night would be by invitation only...but still welcome for very close friends and family.
