|chicken noodle soup|
So here it is . . . when I make this soup, I like to use udon noodles. Nothing wrong with that and any other fat noodle will do. However, completely by accident (another case of serendipity in my kitchen, or so I like to think), I disovered that bucatini pasta works just as well.
Bucatini pasta is one of my favourite types of pasta. It is a sort of fat spaghetti which has been hollowed out; there is a hole running through the entire length.
Can you see where I am going with this? It's a bit like the scene in Lady and the Tramp, where the two love-struck dogs are sharing a plate of pasta. Except that there is just me, savouring the absolute childish pleasure of eating a big bowl of soupy noodles, using the bucatini as a straw . . .
Yes, you read that correctly. My guilty pleasure is slurping up the soup, using the pasta tubing. Some people think that this is revolting, but since I am doing this in the privacy of my own home, I don't see what's wrong with it.
Is there something wrong with it? I mean, really?
