Tina, Baltimore native and part-time food prep-person at Boatyard Bar & Grill in Annapolis, Maryland, has been working as a waitress for five years. However, it has been much longer since she was a college student herself.
“Oh, you don’t even want to know how long it’s been since I’ve been to school, honey. Trust me.” she laughed. From what I could tell, Tina didn’t look that much older than my own mother and she wouldn’t explain to me why she was being so shy. However, being a decent human being, I respected her right to privacy and left the matter alone.
“I’m a huge sucker for anything that has carbs and anything garlicy (sp?), so when I was in college, my friends and I would get together every other week and make garlic noodles,” she said, “They were a real treat, although definitely not something you want to eat regularly unless you want thighs like mine!”
- Pasta (any kind and however much you want): Price $1
- Butter: Price $2.49
- Garlic powder/salt (whichever you want): Price $2
- Total: $5.49
- Make your pasta! You know…boil water…add pasta…wait for it to get all soft and wonderful. Add some olive oil here to keep the pasta from sticking if you want
- Drain pasta
- Add butter and garlic powder/salt
- Boom, you’re ready to serve
This one was probably the easiest I’ve tried, which is good considering it’s finals week and all I really wanna do is curl up into a ball and cry. Now, I’m not a super huge fan of garlic, but my roommate is so she ate most of this in a few hours.
