The girls LOVE when I make pasta. Especially the curly pasta (yes, I know it has a name, but I can't remember it right now). They don't love it because they love to eat it, but because they love to play with it!
They put the pasta on their forks and pretend like the forks are girls with curly hair. Then they make them talk and play with each other. Very little pasta actually gets eaten.
I think it's pretty funny, although I'd like them to eat their food. So, is this a common kid thing?
