Haha, this is too funny!! 🙂

You could still use the rest of the noodles, very simple recipe:

cook onions with a bit of garlic and ground meat; pour tomato sauce on it… pour this on the noodles, put cheese and bake in the oven…

I have the same problem sometimes with with my husband!  I have to tell him exactly what to do and sometimes he zones out and doesn’t listen so he ends up forgetting what I told him.

Awesome, sounds like something my husband would do too!!  You could make alfredo or pasta salad.  Smile

How about some homemade mac and cheese? I guess I’m fortunate that my Fiance can follow directions and is capable of assembling if I do the prep.

Mine is slowly learning… how do you get through 2 years of post-college bachelorhood without learning how to make pasta???

Haha!  I have to very clear in my note about specifying the time to put it in the oven and the temperatur to cook it at.  Sometimes he skims and reverses the two!  Yeah… a meal that was supposed to go in the oven at 4:45 at 350 degrees doesn’t work out so well when it goes in at 3:50 at 445 degrees!!!

Macaroni salad!!! Mix elbow noodles with mayo, pickles, onions, etc. Sounds kinda nasty but it’s one of my favorites =]

@worcesterbride, I don’t care for pasta, and I just cooked it for the first time a few months ago.  Surprisingly it came out well, but I can see how it’s possible to not know how to make pasta.  It was a harrowing experience, if I may say so myself.

Boyfriend or Best Friend is actually pretty good about cooking for himself.  Then again, he worked in a dining hall freshman year, and lived off campus after that.  I only took up cooking after he started working.

That said, I don’t let him peel potatoes.  We were at Thanksgiving one year, and his mom gave him some to peel, and he commented on how I wouldn’t let him peel potatoes anymore.  I didn’t remember banning him from peeling potatoes, it didn’t sound like something I would do, but he insisted that he wasn’t allowed.

So after a bit, I watch him peel potatoes, and more or less say “no wonder I don’t let you peel potatoes!” and take them away to peel myself.  He got to chop them instead.

I don’t even thing my FH can boil water.  I will probably have to teach him a few things when we get married.  So when we have kids it might be a little better.

My ex boyfriend in college once boiled spaghetti noodles for nearly 30 minutes.  Needless to say, it was a soggy, mushy mess.

How hard is it to follow simple directions on a box?  Sometimes I think they do stuff like this on purpose to make them look like they are totally helpless in the kitchen….because they want us to do everything for them!
