spaghetti

I'm the type of person that when you tell me I can't have something I want it. I want it so badly that until I get it I think about it all day, all night, and everywhere else in between. I realized a few days into wearing my cast that I wouldn't be able to make spaghetti. I figured not only couldn't I open the can with my can opener but draining a pot of spaghetti would be all but impossible. Over the next week and a half I thought a lot about spaghetti. In fact I thought about it so often that I finally went to the store to see what I could make that resembled spaghetti. I think by the time I got to the check out people either thought I was the extremely obsessive type or just plain crazy. With a smile on my face I unloaded my stash. 4 boxes lasagna hamburger helper, 4 cans of spaghettios with franks (pop top of course), 4 cans of spaghettios with meatballs, 2 cans Chef boyardee with mini meatballs, 4 cans of Chef boyardee with large meatballs, and several brands of spaghetti type tv dinners. I immediately went home, popped the top off 1 can of spaghettios, heated it up, and devoured it, right out of the pot. All I can say is bon appetit!

What a sweet post! I can totally relate, in fact, I am the same way. I immediately think how I may not need to go anywhere for ever, but just as soon as the car breaks down and I don't have one in the driveway...that's it! I can't stand it! Glad you finally got your spaghetti! :)

Where there's a will, there's a way!! Good for you. I hope you enjoy every bit of it. Years ago my sister-in-law fell and broke both of her wrists. Totally helpless!! I just can't imagine how she managed.
Thanks for your sweet comment. Grandchildren are the best. Hannah is such fun. I could just sit and listen to her talk for ages.
