Gray Hair #437

Joe taught me a little trick right after we were married.

(Get your mind out of the gutter people!)

He showed me that the way to tell if your spaghetti noodles were done cooking was to gently throw one against the wall. (Have you heard of this method?)

If it falls off, the noodles need more time to cook.

If it sticks, the noodles are ready to drain and eat.

Handy, right?


Guess who else he taught this little technique to.

LOL! That's hilarious.

surprisingly my mind wasn't in the gutter til you said to get it out... though usually my mind wanders when i read something like that. :-P

anyway, i never heard that trick, but i guess it makes sense. whenever you touch cooked spaghetti it's sticky, which i have never understood, so perhaps i'll try this next time just to see how the rest of the family reacts. i'm sure my Mom would LOVE to see her 24-year-old daughter throwing spaghetti onto the walls. ;-)

hahahahahahaha! That's hilarious! My roommates and I discovered that once and covered an entire wall with cooked spaghetti. I don't think we ate any of it.

Katy said...

Yep, that pasta is done.

Sami said...

Nice one, Joe! Now, have you told him that HE gets to clean up the mess??? I would totally make Roon do it!

This is all kinds of funny! I've always heard that but I've never tried it before.

Hey...I'm also stopping by to wish you a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Welcome to the 30's. It's not so bad. You'll see. You'll start to feel smarter and stuff! ;)

I hope you have a GREAT day!

MiMi said...

Happy birthday!

Hummmm I've never tried that. I'll have to.

I love that it even sticks to the blinds!!

I was banned from doing that when I was a kid. We covered the ceiling with spaghetti, and my mom couldn't figure out why there was so little when we had used a whole box. Hehehe! I don't think I have done it since then. ;)

I am stopping by because Sami told me to. And truth be told, I wasn't going to come by but then I saw that you are the Wally Kessler to her Harold Green, and I couldn't resist. And boy oh boy am I glad I came by! I freakin LOVE your blog! Wish I had met you long ago. My birthday gift to you is a follow! Happy 30th. I will be joining your ranks in a few short months.
