    Once I was in Vancouver, BC ordered a brandy old-fashioned sweet. It took them a very long time to prepare the drink, to where I was wondering what the problem was. Eventually they delivered to my table a martini glass filled with brandy, and no other ingredients. Apparently they took "old-fashioned" to mean "unadulterated."

    There could have been worse outcomes.

    I am on this conference call that I have been dreading since the weekend, and it has fulfilled every single expectation of suck that it had coming in

    However, my 8 yo niece also chose this time to barrage me with a hundred silly pictures, videos and texts so I'm having a grand old time bantering with her and only half listening to this crap

    Day is going much better than expected.

    No more tweed wearing people on A3 for the next year, I think the jacket alone cost me a thousand times as long as the whole face + background.

    Only if you overdo it. If it's dry pasta, it only works after its already boiled. It's absolutely the best way to reheat it.

    So, theoretically, I can reheat some leftover penne with this method?

    Speaking of crunchy, in China I found they had a snack which was basically uncooked ramen that you ate raw and crunchy. It tasted exactly like you'd expect uncooked ramen to be. It even had packs of that seasoning that you're supposed to stir in while cooking...presumably you're supposed to sprinkle it on the top in this case

    Weren't ramenburgers a thing in NYC a few months back? Those things looked super crunchy but I haven't had the chance to taste it myself.

    They were. I also haven't tried it though several spots near where I live sell 'em.

    Yes. Penne may get a bit crunchy if you don't stir constantly, because the top half of the tube won't heat through as soon as with spaghetti. Olive oil in the pan, whatever sauce you want, and the pasta, all together. Start with about 1/3 heat; if you overdo the heat, it can get crunchy. Of course, if you like crunchy, go for high heat, I guess.

    When I was in grade 3-6 ish, a pouch of Mr Noodles, with the seasoning shaken up in it, eaten dry, was the most popular recess snack. Never understood.

    Children all over east Asia eat ramen this way. There's a few korean brands that were meant to be eaten raw
