My two girls, the two-legged and four-legged ones are my companions. We have this female bond that centers around potato chips, pop-corn, and chocolate. FringePup perks right up when she hears the crinkle of a chip bag and she’s becoming quite efficient at plucking flying pop corn kernels from the air. She really impressed me the other day. I won’t even mention the half pan of brownies she stole from the stovetop.
But tonight, one of my female compadres betrayed me.
Looking into her bowl of spaghetti, FringeKid turned to me and asked, “Is this the kind that sticks together and has hard spots?”
It’s quite fashionable to serve al dente pasta. I’m sure I saw that on the Food Network.
