P someone asks for spaghetti with noodles for dinner, she they DO NOT mean spaghetti with SPAGHETTI noodles. She They mean spaghetti with 'C' noodles (macaroni), because spaghetti with spaghetti noodles is just plain spaghetti. If you choose to assume that the requester meant spaghetti noodles, you will be forced to do one of 2 things:
Since I am still learning to pick my battles with P, I chose the second option. Once I was finished making the 'spaghetti with noodles', I topped it with mozzarella cheese and put it in the oven. After the cheese was melted, I fixed P's plate and she sat at the table. From the kitchen, I hear:
I didn't want sticky cheese on top!!!I picked the 'sticky cheese' off the top, and all was right with the world, and she ate 4 servings of spaghetti with noodles. She also ate another serving as a pre-bedtime snack.
What lesson did I learn?
