Travel Man and I have this ongoing discussion each and every time that I make spaghetti for dinner. Homemade spaghetti is his favorite “first night” home dinner when he comes back from a trip.
The all important question is this- when you sit down at your dining table to enjoy your spaghetti do you cut your noodles, or do you just twirl your noodles onto your fork?
Growing up I was always used to sitting down with my family to a wonderfully prepared spaghetti dinner, and watching and listening to my Dad chop his spaghetti into bite size morsels. It became almost ceremonial as we got a little older. My Dads chopping would get a little loud and we somehow started calling the chopping “gaping”. We would chime, “gape, gape, gape” as my dad cut up his spaghetti to eat it. What a funny little family tradition.
Travel Man’s opinion of this is that it’s a waste of time to cut your spaghetti. He’s a twirler. I repeatedly try to give him a knife with his spaghetti dinner, and he always refuses.
So here’s my curiosity- do you have a spaghetti preference? Is there a story behind your spaghetti preference? I would love to hear your thoughts on this subject.
