WFMW: Cutting Spaghetti

Spaghetti is a staple in our house. We make regular spaghetti, Greek-flavored spaghetti, chili spaghetti...we just love it! What we don't love, though, is the mess that results when Wendy feeds herself spaghetti. Sure, it's cute when a kid is covered head-to-toe in sauce & noodles, but that quickly loses its charm when you realize that you are the one who will have to clean it up!

I tried various things to make the spaghetti easier for Wendy to eat, and finally stumbled across just the right thing.


I put it in one of Wendy's bowls, then cut it up with kitchen shears.

I know, right? I'm sure other people do the same thing. It's a great way of making the spaghetti more manageable, and it's so quick - just a few seconds and I'm spared all the mess that we used to have.

Using kitchen scissors to cut up my 3 year old's spaghetti works for me!

Cutting spaghetti is a requirement in our house, for all three kids - even the 10yo! They ALL whine about it. And tell they are big enough.



When they are 18 and move out of my house and they can eat spaghetti however they want. ; )

I have used a pizza cutter before. I cut up "basgetti" until you can say it right!

That's a great idea!

I just break up the spaghetti before I cook it.
