how to ruin dinner method #81

It's been awhile since my last post about ruining dinner.  Don't worry, I've got a great one for you.  It's a real fix it and forget it ruin. 

First, make sure to tell someone special that you are making a favorite meal for them, make sure it involves pasta. Pasta fagioli soup is one of hubby's favorites.  How sweet of me to make it for him!  

Start the before mentioned meal.  Place pasta and at least two jars of canned tomatoes in a saucepan on the stove.  It's important to use the tomatoes you grew and canned yourself.  The effort shows your love!  Turn the burner on and then realize that it's way to early to do that and you don't even have any beans.  Rather than turn it all the way off, leave it on very low and walk away.  Run one errand, take a meal to a sick friend, run by the grocery on the way home to buy the beans, see a neighbor pulling in and stop and visit awhile.  You'll know you're done when you walk in the door and you smell a little something that smells like dinner.  Only, you weren't home cooking dinner.  Dinner was accidentally cooking itself.   Very much overcooking itself.

mushy pasta.  oh yum. quickly dump in garbage disposal and make some sandwiches.  Pretend those are the favorite meal you were telling your special someone about.  Who doesn't love a sandwich.
