Across the country parents are getting an odd request for dinner: Spaghetti Tacos!
Your kids haven’t knocked their brains loose doing tricks on their skate boards, they are just on top of a food trend sweeping the country thanks to the hit Nickelodeon show “iCarly”
If you’re not familiar with the show I’ll give you the quick run down. We watch it way too much!
Carly lives with her older brother Spencer. Spencer is an artist and is pretty eccentric. (Carly and her friends produce an internet show hence the name iCarly!
In one episode, Spencer was supposed to be making dinner. The camera flashed to what he was producing with his culinary skills and it was: the Spaghetti Taco.
The spaghetti taco has had several reoccurring roles on the show and now is sweeping the sleepover scene across the country.
“That punch line has now become part of American children’s cuisine, fostering a legion of imitators and improvisers across the country. Spurred on by reruns, Internet traffic, slumber parties and simple old-fashioned word of mouth among children, spaghetti tacos are all the rage. Especially if you’re less than 5 feet tall and live with your mother.”
“Mom blogs and cooking Web sites are filled with recipes from dozens of desperate parents who have been confronted with how to feed their offspring the popular gag. A Facebook page has sprung up with more than 1,200 fans.”
I am shocked that I haven’t gotten the request yet for Spaghetti Tacos! My kids are huge fans of iCarly and love the crazy older brother.
Have you gotten the request to make Spaghetti Tacos? Did you know where the weird combination came from? Are you willing to serve it? What is your special way to make it?
