Why is it that food becomes drastically less appealing as a left over? ...Especially to children! Last night's dinner became today's lunch and I knew I would be hearing complaints. My solution- make it a sandwich!
Here's the logic: Cream cheese tastes great on toast (a.k.a. bun). Cheese is a common topping for spaghetti. Eating with one's hands is more fun than using a fork. And it was a success! The hot spaghetti warmed the cream cheese and made a thick, rich sauce. The toasted bun had just the right amount of crunch and held the messy meal together.
So, yeah. It looks really bad, but we have a new way to eat our spaghetti! What have you created that tasted a lot better than it looked?
