National Meatball Day

“Miracles are like meatballs, because nobody can exactly agree on what they are made of, where they come from, or how often they should appear.” - Lemony Snicket, The Carnivorous Carnival

It's National Meatball Day!

(My inspiration for this photo - and I feel I need to tell you this, since it's one of the more ridiculous ones I've ever taken - was from the Mario Brothers. You know? Mario Mario and Luigi Mario?)

Anybody who grew up in the 80's remembers certain children's books - like Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs (which was revived when it became a movie in 2009, twenty-seven years later). The concept was delicious: the people of the town of Chewandswallow eat whatever falls from the sky since their weather is based around food - it rains orange juice, snows mashed potatoes, and there's even a spaghetti tornado. I'm sure I'm not alone when I admit that whenever I eat meatballs, my eyes glance up at the heavens and I wonder, "What if... "

Happy National Meatball Day!
