spaghetti a la olivia

The evidence.

Here's what we had for dinner tonight :)
I hope you like it as much as we did. The house still smells like cinnamon and oregano, an interesting combination.

Spaghetti a la Olivia


1 pot of really good spaghetti, waiting on the stove for everyone to eat
1 two-year-old, unsupervised
one entire bottle of dried oregano
one entire bottle of cinnamon sugar
one entire bottle of almond extract
one large bottle of vanilla extract
{optional...we almost had it in ours, but decided it wasn't a very good idea}

Let the unsupervised two-year-old climb up onto the counter and find the pot of spaghetti on the stove while dad is babysitting for five minutes. Add remaining ingredients. Find something else for dinner.


  1. hmmmm. I don't think my family would like this for dinner I don't think I will make this one. I love that you took pictures. This is what you will want to remember 20 years from now. Olivia will love hearing this story about her.

  2. I think it looks good :) I'm a spice girl so when I saw the picture, I thought yum...I may have to try that....UNTIL I read what you wrote...then I decided to pass!
