If you're not knitting, the terrorists win

(My mostly on-topic ramblings about knitting. And life in general. My life in specific.)

I'm a middle aged mother of 2 grown children and wife to a man who doesn't seem to mind my almost heroin-like yarn addiction. I spend my time writing, knitting, and generally stressing out.

You Never Know What You're Going To Find

I love the "convenience" items you find at the grocery store. Like this package of "Toastabags." I like how they made the name sound all hip--Toastah Bags, bitches!

Apparently, if you don't know how to make the second easiest sandwich in the world, or you just can't be trusted around the stove, you can make your grilled cheese sandwich in the toaster. (I would argue that you would actually be making a toasted cheese sandwich, but whatever.) You just slide your sandwich into this bag and pop the bag into the toaster.

I suppose, of course, this is probably better than that often-Pinned idea of turning your toaster on its side to make your grilled cheese. I don't know about you, but the kind of grilled cheese sandwich I make would set my toaster on fire--buttered bread surrounding a goodly amount of cheese. Hey, I never said it was a heart-healthy sandwich.

Plus, if your toaster is like mine, it could be very dangerous. My toaster, the Catapult5000, can project a slice of toast at near-light speed. I always imagine those Pinterest Toaster Grilled Cheeses as a flaming ball of buttery bread and cheese shooting across the counter and onto the floor.

The Toastabag doesn't compare to Veggetti, though. Veggetti has been on TV.

But seriously, I'm not saying cutting squash or other veggies into thin, spaghetti-like strands wouldn't be good. I have had spaghetti squash several times and loved it. Plus, I can definitely see some sort of zucchini-in-tomato-based sauce with basil and mozzarella cheese. Delish.

But, don't market it as spaghetti. You're not fooling anyone, Veggetti. And parents, if your children can't tell the difference between zucchini and spaghetti, you're probably just a bad cook.
