The cashier looked at all the boxes of pasta I put down on the conveyor belt and tilted his head up slightly as if to inquire why.
Eventually, he made a remark.
I said,” Uh-huh.”
“Huh? Er…no, just for every day.”
I guess 10 boxes of pasta looks like it’s stockpiling for Covid?
If only he knew how much we eat pasta.
Those 10 boxes will most likely be consumed in a few weeks. The daughter alone can finish 5. I’m kidding. But she can eat pasta at every. single. meal.
She’s getting very good at cooking pasta, too. Like this one below.
I helped her a little; I was her sous chef. But she pretty much did everything else. It was fantastic!

Ten boxes of pasta is probably more than I eat in a year… But ever so often I do get in a pasta mood that needs satiating.
Yeah, we may be getting a little overboard with the pasta. I blame the daughter, totally! ?
Jhuls @ The Not So Creative Cook says
The pasta looks amazing, Angie! I can see why your daughter can eat pasta every single meal. Happy Fiesta Friday!!
Thanks! Happy cohosting, Jhuls! Thanks for that, too ?
Hi, Angie; your daughter did a great job with that spaghetti, we are pasta lovers around here, as well! Thank you for hosting another great party, and especially for featuring my homemade chorizo, I hope you get to try it and gives you a tasty alternative to the not-so good commercial ones. This week I am sharing #22 with two breakfast suggestions using the chorizo (and café con leche on the side). Have a wonderful weekend!
She definitely has pasta-cooking down pat. Her cacio e pepe is better than the restaurants’. She still expects me to cook for things like lasagna and canelloni, though, but otherwise when it comes to the simple every day pasta dishes, she’s able to fend for herself. Thanks for the chorizo recipe!
Wow that’s a lot of pasta for a week…having said that your daughter seems like a star cook as the spaghetti looks perfectly cooked!
Guess what? Today I came home from work and there was already a bowl of pasta e ceci waiting. My daughter had prepared it!

It certainly seems the ‘rules’ have changed with Covid. We buy a pack of toilet rolls, or pasta or a tin of tomatoes and we are eyed with suspicion. We accidentally swallow the wrong way and naturally cough… we clear the room! Strange times.
Thank you for featuring my custard creams… And yes… Apparently incredibly dangerous biscuits!! x
I had a tickle in my throat, most likely due to seasonal allergy, and the school nurse heard me clearing my throat and immediately marched me into her office to take my temp. It was low, like 96. So she let me off the hook with a warning if I develop another symptom to please stay home the next day. Seems drastic but I guess it’s good that she’s doing her job.

You’re welcome. Hoisin Cilantro Sauce sounds fantastic!

Thanks so much for hosting!
Lucky you having such a clever daughter Angie. Pasta is such a wonderful blank slate for imagination. Stay well!
I know, right? I’m definitely lucky to have her. I agree with you, pasta can be the start of many delicious meals.
I love popping in here for the party. I always find such inspiring ideas and recipes. Thank you for hosting. This week I brought Orange braised chicken, Cheese & potato stuffed pork chops and Baked Ricotta dip. I hope you have a FANTASTIC weekend.
Thanks, Tamy. Have a great weekend.
That pasta does look scrumptious! I’m a huge pasta lover myself so I totally understand 😉 It’s funny how the cashiers always have an opinion about people’s purchases, isn’t it xD Happy Fiesta!
Thanks! Let’s tell those cashiers they have no right to judge us, lol.
