In the past I have never measured spaghetti because if I had extra I always used leftovers for the next day. I have noticed that I have more waste now that my family is smaller; so I try to cook just what we will eat that day plus one serving. Using the quarter, nickel, and dime method I came up with this idea.This Instructable is how to make a spaghetti measure so you don't have any waste.
Step 1: What You Will Need
1 Scrap piece of craft foam.
Step 2: Method
Place the quarter, nickel,and dime over the foam and draw a circle around each coin.
Step 3: Cutting the Foam
Poke the center of the circles with the scissor point.
Trim out the coin shapes.
Step 4: Wash the Foam
Wash the foam piece.
Store in a kitchen drawer.
The Dime shape is for a small child.
The Nickel shape is for a older child.
The quarter shape is for an adult with a small appetite.
2 Quarters is for an adult with a hefty appetite.
Step 5: Sunshiine's Final Thoughts
This spaghetti measure will be just the thing to measure spaghetti so there will be less waste. I am very happy with the end results.
Thank you for stopping by and please remember to have a wonderful day!
