So everything was going well with my spaghetti sauce last night.  My house smelled yummylicious and for once the bottom of the pot wasn’t burning.  No matter how low I keep the temp after it starts to boil I have to be careful not to scrape the bottom of the pot, it pisses hubby off as the sauce will taste burnt.  I don’t mind the burnt taste personally but I didn’t want any bitching after I cooked on my birthday.  It did boil over a bit on my stove but going to an electric glass top stove a few years back was the best thing ever, yay me!

Anyway, it took about 2 light years to boil enough water for 2 boxes of spaghetti.  I purchased Giant Eagle/Natures Basket Organic spaghetti.  Would you think the noodles would be inside a plastic bag, inside a box?  Me neither.  I opened one of the boxes and went to pour the noodles into the pot of boiling water.  Yeah, I think I only noticed it was in plastic when I couldn’t separate the noodles with a fork.  I promptly removed the oily bag of noodles from the pot.  It was fun attempting to open the bag covered in oily water.  It was even more fun realizing I was out of paper towels.  Do me a favor, forget the plastic and save me some money this organic food is expensive.

Dinner was delicious if I do say so myself.

My sister was nice enough to bring me a cake to celebrate my birthday. We almost set the kitchen table on fire after lighting the candles.  I tried convincing her we only needed 1-24 box of birthday candles but she wasn’t having it.  I think she bought a tiny cake for the effect……
