T and I alternate nights of cooking and clean up when he is here.
He cooks, I clean up. And vise versa.
Last night was T’s night to cook and neither of us could really decide and given we had no salad materials, it really knocked a few options out of the running. Left with a choice between spaghetti or Hamburger Helper, we went the way of Hamburger Helper as we did not have enough spaghetti sauce.
This was T’s first time making it.
I was sitting on the couch and I could hear the water boiling when T mentioned that he thought that he had put too much water in. I said to him that it was okay, turn the heat down to simmer and let it go for another 10 minutes.
T: But mom I have to add the milk and pasta yet.
Me: Okay, add them in. And stir. Turn heat down.
T: I am waiting for the water to dissolve.
I tried, I tried so so hard not to laugh.
I failed miserably and though I tried to hide it I could not stop the snorting.
Instructions on the box: Brown meat. Drain off fat. Add in seasoning and 2 cups of water. Stir until dissolved.
Eventually T admitted that he too found it funny.
Not as funny as I have found it and I plan to remember this one for his kids when he has them.
