You know how I’m always going on about recipes that are so easy, they’re impossible to screw up? Well. I think I might have to go back on my word, because I have done the inevitable. I have screwed up Kraft Dinner.
We all know distracted driving is extremely dangerous, and I think distracted cooking might be venturing into that dangerous territory. I was just on the phone with my mom and managed to make two major mistakes in the KD process. Instead of boiling the water first, I dumped the pasta into a pot of cold water, and then left it on the stove where, not long afterwards, saw out of the corner of my eye the white foamy volcano on top of the pot that can only indicate one thing: the pot had boiled over.
As I type this, I’m snacking on a bowl of KD, so I guess it all worked out in the end. But I would like to say, if you make mistakes I did, know you are not the only one. I am the king of distracted cooking (I once nearly started a kitchen fire).
