Grumpy the Gator

In Grumpy the Gator, a group of children playing encounter a grumpy alligator. The story teaches children to always keep a safe distance from animals in the wild, and to find an adult if they see an alligator.

Its Always A Story With The Hendersons

Noodle directions…..

Hubby and I decided to have a delicious home cooked meal on Saturday evening. After a day of grocery shopping, electronic recycling and cleaning house, we chose to prepare baked pasta and a nice healthy salad for our dinner.
We were so proud of ourselves as we worked together, side by side, in our tiny kitchen, preparing this meal. The grocery store was out of our regular pasta, so, hubby had bought some of that “No boil” pasta. Yes, there was an “issue”.
Pouring the penne noodles out of the box, filling the dish with sauce, sprinkling on a bit of parmesan cheese and mozzarella cheese, we were so proud of ourselves. What a fancy dinner we would enjoy!
Strange thing is that neither one of us read the directions for the “no boil” pasta. Seems we had forgotten a very important part of the dish. ADD WATER.
“No boil” meant “No boil”, not “Don’t add water.” Silly us.
No wonder the noodles were so crunchy. Good thing we looked at each other and burst into laughter. We knew we better read the directions this time and next time.
All was well. Water added, noodles cooked, baked pasta was delicious.
Yes, folks, “It’s Always a Story with the Henderson’s” heehee
Blessings and giggles,

    Reading directions can always be helpful. At least you were both able to laugh about it.

    Oh my goodness! This is so funny! I am literally laughing out loud! But this is something I could see my hubby and I doing as well! I mean, if the box says “No Boil” who would think to add water? Lol!!!!! I have never heard of this kind of pasta, but will be looking for it. Only thing I need to do, is remember to add water! 🙂 I hope you and your family have a very Happy Thanksgiving! 🙂
