Things that married people do...

We cook....err...Or at least proceed to tell each other how to cook.

Last week, I decided that I would cook "American" spaghetti for Sidnei's family. I guess I should really just call it, my spaghetti, I suppose spaghetti in itself is not that American. But here in Brazil...at least from what I've had, the spaghetti isn't quite done the same. It has a very tiny bit of sauce and is served as a side, rather than the main course, with rice, and some sort of meat.

So we took the recipe my Dad gave me and did a little more of a spicy spin off! We had to improvise a little because we don't have access to all the ingredients we had at home, but everything worked out perfect! We had a lot of fun telling each other what to do and made quite the mess! I think we spent more time washing dishes than actually cooking! The results turned out fantastic and I think we'll have to do it again soon!

In Turkey, pasta is the same way. So not the same. I'm glad you were able to enjoy this experience together!

That looks delish, and I think it's such a sweet thing to make spaghetti for everyone! In China, we ordered spaghetti and it even LOOKED like our spaghetti, but man, it sure didn't taste like ours. ;)

Sounds like fun. Cooking together. Something I have not had the pleasure of yet. My hubby can´t even cook an egg! :)

That would be so fun to introduce another family to "American" food and flavors!

My husband won't cook with me because apparently I make too many comments about how he's not doing it right. I tell him I've changed but he doesn't believe me!
