Today we are celebrating Memorial Day Weekend Italian Style in Fairfield New Jersey! Our friends are hosting their First Memorial Day Meatball Contest! Yep, that's right we are having a meatball contest! We are one out of twelve families who will be making our usual Italian Sunday dinner (macaroni and meatballs) and each family is to bring 10 meatballs in gravy and the host will supply the macaroni! There should be approximately 120 meatballs which means to taste everyone's meatballs - one would have to eat 12 meatballs!!! I'm sure some of the guys can handle 12 meatballs but not me - I think I'll just stick to a dish of macaroni and some nice hot Calandra's Bakery bread!
I'm still not sure who the judges are or what the winner gets much each family better bring their balls, fully cooked in gravy at 5:00 today!
I guess if all goes well, each year Fairfield may celebrate Memorial Day Weekend Italian Style and the First Memorial Day Meatball Contest may turn into the Annual Memorial Day Meatball Contest in Fairfield, New Jersey! Who said Memorial Day Weekend was about hot dogs and hamburgers anyway???
Meatballs, macaroni and hot, fresh Calandra's bread are another three reasons to move to Fairfield, New Jersey! (As if you needed a reason.....)
