Create your own spaghetti buffet for dinner. It's a fun (and easy!) dinner idea. Make 2-3 different types of pasta (though traditional spaghetti is a must for this day!) and maybe even include some zucchini noodles. Then offer various sauces and toppings like marinara and alfredo sauce, cherry tomatoes, roasted broccoli, caramelized onions, shredded rotisserie chicken, meatballs, and mushrooms. Everyone can create their dinner the way they want to.
- January 6: Bean Day
Mexican Bean Bracelet Craft
- January 12: Hot Tea Day
Calvaresi Coffee, Tea & Etc. offers a large selection of gourmet coffee, teas, and miscellaneous items. They also make gift baskets for all occasions (please call at least 24 hours in advance).
