Food, Mac and cheese 

@InternetEh I cook my pasta in a smaller pot starting in cold water. It takes about 10-15 min on high heat to cook and then I dump the pasta in the pan I’m gonna bake it in and use the same pot to make the cheese sauce for minimal dishes.

Food, Mac and cheese 

@InternetEh I’ve done it where you cook the lady’s in milk (no straining) and then made it into a cheese sauce. It was stove top only and it was just okay. I think part of the issue is that you want some of that pasta starch to wash off in the water otherwise the final product is too dense/pasty. It works in a lasagna since it has less noodles and it’s goal is to be a sliceable dish. My ideal mac and cheese is a more scoopable consistency even if it’s baked.

Death, drugs, trauma, terrible 

@InternetEh Oh Sid. I’m so so sorry.

My child is crying because I told them that trucks (even monster trucks with fake mouthes and eyes) are not alive.

@danaross I still have light up ghosts in my yard! Mostly because I forgot they were there until I saw your post…

@abbie @lily_o_valley While cooler.mom has been around for about three and a half years, it’s been pretty small and quiet. My partner runs dads.cool (and handles all the tech stuff for us) which a few months older and much bigger.

@abbie @lily_o_valley The way mastodon works, stuff like hashtags depend on what other mastodon servers/instances people on cooler.mom have interacted with before. As more people sign up and more people use it, stuff will start to appear.

@Thomas We had applesauce pouches (among other things) and almost every kid that came by took one! Kids just love apples it seems.

@orko @alex if you don’t mind folding things, flats and a few covers are good low cost way to start. Flats can be folded to fit a wide range of ages and can be used for other things like a burp cloth, rag, etc. We use our old (well cleaned) ones as our kitchen towels now. I switched from flats to fitteds at 10 months because they were getting really squirmy during changes.

@orko Cloth is great! Would defiantly do it again. There are so many options available it can be a little overwhelming though.
