While social distancing, we missed each other here at KJHK. In the hopes of feeling like a family again, we cooked and ate a spaghetti meal together. How’d it turn out? Well, we’ll let you decide.
Do you want to have one of your own? Here’s how we did it:
– at least 10 of your closest friends
– noodles (spaghetti or other)
– Kraft American cheese slice
– tomato paste
– french bread
– crunchy green beans
- Give each of your friends something to cook/prepare.
- Chop up one onion and several cloves of garlic. (reserve some garlic for garlic bread)
- Using a butter knife, scrape the tomato paste into a pot.
- When it becomes apparent that just tomato paste is not a sauce, add some milk and butter.
- Stir using a figure 8 motion for best results.
- While your sauce is simmering, fill a pot with water and heavily salt.
- Turn the burner on high and cover the pot. Wait for a rolling boil.
- While the water is boiling, put your veggie-”meat” in a skillet, flipping occasionally.
- Put one bag of frozen, crunchy green beans into a pot with some water and wait for them to steam.
- Put in your pasta of choice once the water reaches a rolling boil.
- Soften half a stick of butter and mash in with minced garlic.
- Spread garlic butter on half a loaf of french bread.
- Put bread in a pre-heated oven.
- Strain your pasta once it reaches al-dente and pour it into your sauce.
- Set your table with plates, forks (for competence) and spoons (for status).
- Light a candle for ambiance.
Enjoy your spagett!
Lastly, finish the meal off with two scoops of ice cream you found in your cabinet…or wherever you keep it.
