Spaghetti noodles..the calories per serving on the box of noodles...is that dry or after they cook? We all know things weigh more wet then dry. So when the box says 180 calories per 2 oz..is that wet or dry?
I made spaghetti last night and weighed my portion after cooking it and before saucing it. I had a little over 5 oz on my plate. So does that mean I had 2.5 servings? Or could that mean I had what amounts to 1 serving dry?
Like I said above...we had spaghetti last night. I think I did OK. I weighed the noodles (wet..see above), had a cup of sauce on it (this consisted of Hunts canned sauce, ground beef, onions, mushrooms, and some butter). Then later in the evening..1/2 cup of Bluebell ice cream.
I have no idea what we're having tonight. I have ground beef thawed in the fridge..maybe meat loaf? Have to see when I get home.
So I think that's all for today...have a great rest of Tuesday!!
And an extra today....
