My Step mom puts the spaghetti into cold water, and then heats it up slightly, not even to boiling and then takes it off the burner to allow the residual heat to finish cooking the noodles. The noodles come out sticky and not completely cooked. She does this under the guise of saving energy.

but she leaves her computer on , and every other damn electronic device in the house. The spaghetti turns out terrible. I am furious.

If i were to call her on it right now, which I could because she is using this terrible cooking technique, she would explain how she is saving energy and blah blah blah, FML

How old are you? Can't you make your own noodles?

Why don't you unplug all the electronics in the house -- then when she asks why you did that -- just tell her you were learning from her about saving energy

Make your own noodles. Or better yet, make it for your step mom as well.

How many meals has she cooked for you and then ask yourself how many you have cooked for her, carry the one, multiply...


Or pull out the pack of Ramon Noodles.

Peace

"Jeez, Guido, ya think the kid's legit?"
"Yeah, Bruno, look at him, he's got tha shakes an' everything. He's not hidin' nuttin'. Besides, messin' with spaghett' is serious business. I tell ya, the Boss is gonna be sore about this."
"Jeez, Guido, ya sure are right 'bout that. Tryin' to takeover some of the Boss' rackets is one thing, but foolin' around wit' spaghett'??? That ol' lady gotta be crazy in the head to be talkin' like that."

I'm related to a woman who was close friends with a group of people who, well, let's just say they frequented "Italian-American Social clubs."

Here's a tip from an Italian. To keep spaghetti noodles from sticking, add a little olive oil to the boiling water (approx. 2 tbsp). If you want to check if the noodles are the way you want them to be, take a fork and pull a noodle out and try one. If the noodles are soft to your liking, shut the heat off and drain the noodles.

Hmmm. cooking spaghetti that way would be bad. If it isn't cooked right it doesn't taste right. When you dry starches it forms an anhydrate and this anhydrate needs to be removed from the noodle when it is cooked. Making sure there is plenty of hot water makes the anhydrate dissipate into the water and get dumped out. Anhydrate is basically rock. You turn the spaghetti into a rock when you dry it. I would follow the time tested way of cooking spaghetti and noodles to make sure the mild toxin is removed. I don't know where El-dente came from, that actually doesn't even sound right as far as removing toxins. I wonder if that is something new in the Italian diet, how was it cooked fifty years ago? I'm not sure if the chemical formed would be acetyaldhyde or another, I don't think I ever knew the exact name of the chemical.

She can cook it any way she likes. Doesnt mean you have to eat it.

When the teens in my home complain about my method of cooking they tend to not get fed. After all, they are teens and can make their own darn spaghetti especially if they are going to b* tch about mine. One thing you do not do in my home is insult the cook...medic....laundry service.....maid....chaueffer.... you get the point?

Plus if undercooked noodles are the worst thing you have to complain about your life is actually not so bad. Try to look at the bright side pun'kin.....you have someone who loves you and is making you a meal. Some people dont have anyone and some people dont get a meal and worse yet some people have neither.

Feel better??

I tell my daughter who is 17 she has princess syndrome...I think you might as well.

First of all, I don't have princess syndrome, I AM a princess. Secondly, oddly enough, yes I do feel better.

It puts things in perspective when someone else counts your blessings for you, have a good evening

LOL that is what my daughter says!

I was writing tongue in cheek...and was not trying to offend. I was just telling you what I would tell my own princess.

Hugs and no hard feelings?

Go on a hunger strike and refuse to eat her meals and go out and have your own meals.
