"Sure!" I answered. "Just put some water in a pan, set it on the stove, and..."
"Turn it on to medium, right?" Lexi interrupted.
"Right," I agreed.
A few minutes later, Lexi said, "The water's boiling, Mom. Can I pour the macaroni in?"
"Sure. Just do it slowly and be careful not to splash hot water on you," I instructed.
I walked out to the kitchen to drain the macaroni for Lexi so she wouldn't burn herself. This is what I saw...
Apparently, she'd let Clay pour the packet of powdered cheese into the boiling water along with the macaroni. She's helped me make macaroni and cheese a thousand times, so I'm not sure why she went with this creative interpretation of the directions.
Mmmmm, cheese soup with pasta! I think she's ready for a Throw Down with Bobby Flay.
