Fun Ala Aunt Sonny

Last week we filled the pool with pasta, rice, and beans. The boys enjoyed it, but not nearly long enough! A couple of days later, we had a really big storm and it blew the pool and its contents across the corn field and across the road.

We put it into cool whip containers when we were done, but they blew away/open during the storm. It was really bad. I had some big shells for them, but forgot them in the garage, I found them last night.

oh i see, they were put away. i was picturing all the pasta still in the pool. Now, I get it.
IF you keep adding to it when you find cheap pasta, they will have tons eventually. I buy the clearance crap like nonwheat and stuff. Stuff no one buys and then they put it onsale for .25. My kids are asking to do it again so we will in a couple of weeks. You need more spoons too and some paper towel tubes. I am going to try your containers with lids next time. i bet Sam would enjoy doing that.
