Recipes From Cooking With the Twins!

My camera was SB (sans batteries) so this weekend in "Cooking Class" with the twins, I have no photo presentation. But, imagine the ladies working around the peninsula! They are stuffing pasta shells. Not hard to do, now that you've seen it quite a few times. Imagine this week they have color matched their outfits magically again in peach! Now, we were putting together the dinner and somehow the conversation switched to whatever happened to all mom's old recipes. The "recipe box"? Well, mom reached into the cabinet (where it always was kept) and out came the recipe box! So, here this week I present Mom's Spaghetti Sauce. It is like nothing you will find anywhere else! She tells about the Italian family she got it from, old family recipe.
Spaghetti Sauce

1 lb. ground beef
1 Tbs. butter
1 large onion, minced
1 large handful parsley, chopped
1/4 tsp. allspice
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
