I usually do the easy, quick, and simple meals. I do not always feel like even cooking much less spending a lot of time “watching over” stuff or messing up a lot of dishes to prepare meals—-to have to clean up later.
I used to enjoy putting forth more effort to try something “different” and today—-I sort of tried that again. Well, I still think this is a good idea (for people with patience, time, and the desire) to just try something out of the routine.
I knew this project would not work in a microwave since a microwave does not brown things. I have a Nuwave that cooks things much faster than a conventional oven and will brown it, too. So, I thought it would be worth a try. I used 4 silicon muffin cups. I suggest that anyone that tries to do these spaghetti bird’s nest——do them in a 6 cup muffin pan instead of the smaller silicon cups and be prepared to either use toaster oven or conventional oven to bake them. I can’t tell you how long it will actually take since I didn’t do that. I did mine about 9-10 minutes in the Nuwave and just got tired of having to watch it every second to make sure it wasn’t getting over browned (well, I had no danger there LOL). They were set enough to use but were not the browned color to help them really look like straw, etc. They just were not browning and I didn’t want to wait and keep on and on. LOL
Anyway, I post my food diary and I post the successful things and the not so successful trials and errors, such as this.
*I realize my choice of food and/or method of preparation may not be suitable for everyone.
Thanks for taking time to read my blog.
