Spaghetti tacos

Last weekend we had six of Elli's friends (all nine year old girls) here for a sleepover birthday party. The plan was to play games, eat dinner, make s'mores, then watch movies. And all went according to plan. (I love when that happens.)

Elli planned the menu for dinner. She wanted to have Spaghetti tacos because it's something she's wanted to try "her whole entire life."

What are spaghetti tacos you ask? Just what you think. Spaghetti stuffed in a taco shell. Regular spaghetti + regular taco shell = spaghetti tacos. Elli got the idea from a character named Spencer on the show iCarly.
Here's where it all started with Carly, Spencer, Sam from the iCarly show on Nickelodeon.
The NY Times has even written about these crazy tacos. Apparently they are becoming quite the phenomenon. Who knew?

And the verdict? The girls loved it! I mean really, what's not to love?

All I can say is there was a lot of laughter at the table. I do believe a good time was had by all.

And they ate it too!

Happy birthday, peanut!
