So, do you think the above pictures show too much pasta for 9 adult women? . . . because I DEFINITELY DID NOT and thus I think I have a problem.
Why do I have a problem? . . . because I chose to make this much pasta for my 8 guests based on how much pasta I MYSELF eat in one meal and yet, AFTER dinner - this is what was left! WTF!
Clearly - I grossly, disgustingly, dramatically overestimated the average female's ability to overdose on pasta and meat sauce the way I am perfectly capable of doing. I should have invited men to girl's night.
. . . and so - since these lightweights do not know how to eat rigatoni, my husband and I (aka me, because he annoyingly does not have sauce in his veins) will be eating it for days if not an entire week.
Just toss it you say? Oh no, I cannot be bothered with that kind of waste. Do homeless shelters take leftovers? No?
Well then, bring on the carb coma. My great grandmother, whose underarms could wrap around her like a cape and who may have once served us spaghetti for breakfast, would be so proud!
