Looking for something to do? Here is my silly idea and you can find many more fun ideas over at Scribbit's Winter Bazaar.
Last night we had spaghetti for dinner. This morning, as I cleaned up leftover little bits of dinner mess, I noticed some noodles hanging over the cross beam under our dining table (I'm guessing this was the work of Sweet Terror). I picked the noodles up and noticed how they kept their shape now that they were dry, and I had an idea. (Pardon the bad pictures. Tin foil doesn't make the best backdrop for pictures that need a flash. If only the sun would come out I wouldn't need the flash.)
I quickly boiled up some more noodles, drained them, separated into bowls, stirred in some food coloring, called up some kids, and we went to work. If your fingers start sticking too much to the noodles just get them wet or spray them with cooking oil.
It took me a few tries before I figured out how to twist some clovers (my first attempts were much to complicated). I am going to save these and use them as festive garnish on our St. Patrick's day dinner plates.
That big ball of noodles to the left there is going to be a Leprechaun home. We draped noodles over an inverted glass so it will be hollow inside. Cookie wants to fill it will gold wrapped chocolates and use it for a St. Patty's Day centerpiece.
Oh, and if you have any leftover noodles you can reheat them in the microwave with butter and salt and serve as rainbow noodles for lunch or a snack =)
