It used to be just us siblings on family occasions but as the years come and go and siblings are slowly married, many more children are added to the family circle each year. I just woke up one day and surprised about the truth that eight more children are added to the clan. Now we have more parties to make, more eating to do and more recipes to prepare on every occasion. And the children's birthdays are always the most celebrated occasion each year. But what about if four of them celebrates a birthday on the same month, its tiresome to think about it but the family has an idea of making the celebration into one. Making it that way would never stress the entire family on the preparations and all. And because they are still children, we would always prepare foods that they and their friends always love to eat. It is just to make sure that what are being prepared on the table will not be just a leftover after the party.

Let me share with you one of the hot items on the table that children really love even if there's no occasion to celebrate.

1/4         kilo Del Monte Spaghetti, cooked per package directions
2            tbsp margarine
