Funny Friday: Get In There

Today’s post is November’s Funny Friday, a regular feature published on the last Friday of every month. Funny Friday is a collaborative project. Each month one of the participants submits a picture, then we all write 5 captions or thoughts inspired by that month’s picture. Links to the other bloggers’ posts are below, click on them and see what they’ve come up with. I hope we bring a smile to your face as you start your weekend.

Funny Friday: A monthly collaboration. One picture, five captions | picture contributed by Confessions of a part-time working mom |
1. Wife to husband: Where did you go to buy this spaghetti, up the beanstalk? 
2. Spaghetti to the cook: Hey, you promised me a nice hot bath. I'm gonna need a bigger tub. And where's the shampoo?

3. Hubs mumbling to himself: Make spaghetti, she said. It's simple, she said. Just drop it in the boiling water, she said . . .

4. Hubs still mumbling to himself: Oh, I get it. First I cook this side, then I turn it around and cook the other side. But wait, how do I get the middle?

5. Hubs, scratching his head and still mumbling to himself: I know, I bet it just sinks into pot as it softens. Yeah, that's it! And it's done when it's all in there. Perfect. I'll just stand here and wait.
Speaking of spaghetti:

*In the same skillet, cook the hamburg and hot sausage until completely cooked through. Drain well and add to the sauce in the pot. Stir well.

  1. This sauce sounds divine!!!! Absolutely loved all your captions!!!! I hope you have a fabulous weekend!!!!

    1. This sauce smells divine. Love doing it in the crock pot, our mouths are watering by dinner time.

  2. Sounds like a great meat sauce recipe!

  3. It's good that the husbands notice that this cooking gig ain't as easy as it looks ;-)
    Your sauce looks perfect, I'm getting hungry. It being 5pm around here there's actually nothing wrong with that!

    1. Yeah, my husband can do the grill and he can do pancakes, that's about it.

  4. I like spaghetti just saying, also it is the only pasta Tim eats also just saying

    1. If you like spaghetti you should definitely try this sauce.

  5. 3-5 I could see happening in just about any of our homes.
    AND then you added a recipe for sauce. Genius!

  6. Did he get the pasta for 2 or 3 magic beans? ;)

    My husband would love the sauce, so I might have to give it a go!

    1. I hope you do try the sauce, it's a favorite around here.

  7. I think I prefer #5 -- Your sauce is so similar to mine so it must be great LOL

  8. Sounds like my husband in the kitchen...or me! I can't wait to try this meat sauce! It sounds delicious! I could eat spaghetti every single day!

  9. Mmmm . . . beanstalk spaghetti! Too fun, as always, Karen! And now I'm craving spaghetti . . .

  10. Scared to admit that I "may" have thought that #4 was how pasta was created. Maybe...
    The sauce looks amazing and is likely the answer to "Hey, I'm sick of Thanksgiving leftovers".

  11. Just dropping by to say I hope and you and yours had a terrific Thanksgiving and long holiday weekend!

  12. Very funny post!! Plus I love the meat sauce recipe, sounds delicious!!

  13. Sad but true........I've known men who think things like that when they cook

    1. My husband is one of those. He can make pancakes and grill meat but that's about it.
