Incredible Spaghetti!

March 10, 2017

I haven’t been eating much spaghetti lately, but this post from 2013 reminds me of the best spaghetti I ever ate.



The other day Mrs. Chatterbox made spaghetti. I like spaghetti well enough but this spaghetti was different. It was—incredible, so good that after a few mouthfuls I could barely concentrate on what I was eating. I finally set down my fork and said, “What’s different about this spaghetti?”


“Funny you should ask,” Mrs. C. said. “Do you remember when we went to Italy and I bought that special cooking oil in Sorrento?”


I confessed I didn’t remember.


“Well, I found it in the back of the pantry and thought I’d use it in the spaghetti. Frankly, I don’t notice much of a difference.”


“You don’t? This stuff is amazing, maybe one of the best things you’ve ever cooked.”


She beamed. “Glad you like it.”


I twirled another forkful of pasta and delivered it to my mouth. Yum! A strange phenomenon occurred while I ate; Mrs. Chatterbox, who I consider to be one of the loveliest women alive, suddenly looked even more lovely. In fact, she looked ravishing, and by that I mean deserving of being ravished.


When finished, it took willpower not to lick the plate. “Is there any more?” I asked.


She shook her head as she pushed her plate in my direction. “You can have mine if you like it so much.”


At the time I was too greedy to wonder why she didn’t think this one of the best things ever to put in her mouth. A few deliciously nasty thoughts mushroomed in my mind. “Is there any of this oil left in the pantry?” I asked.




I needed to check out this magic elixir, but when I stood and pushed back my kitchen chair I was startled by the size of the tent on the front of my pants.


Mrs. Chatterbox’s eyebrows shot up. I mean, we weren’t teenagers; it’s been a long time since I pushed her down on the kitchen table and ravished her. I could see from her expression that she was having similar thoughts and wasn’t opposed to the idea. But first I needed to learn more about the miraculous substance transforming me into the god of testosterone.


I dashed over to the pantry, pulled out the oil and read the label. “That explains it,” I said before clearing suitable space on our kitchen table.

Words escape me. I'm afraid to ask how often you cooked with that magic oil after that.

It's a good thing it wasn't Cialis because those poor people do nothing but sit in separate bathtubs. I've never understood that advertisement. Love, Janie

Oh my. What an entertaining story, Stephen. I hope nothing lasted more than 4 hours. =) Take care.

Does Mrs C read your blog? :)

Perhaps you should retitle your blog from The Chubby Chatterbox to The God of Testosterone.

I hope you didn't need to go to the hospital for that.

That's quite a product, i'm surprised it's been kept so secret!

I'm sure each time you post this there is an increase in sales. Think they should send you a free bottle.

What ever works, the line "I'll have what she's having" comes to mind. Tell Janie Junebug, the bathtubs are to cool down afterwards.

What?! How did they do that? Add pills to the oil? I'm kinda stunned. :O

Good thing I didn't have a mouthful of spaghetti in my mouth while reading this or it would be all over the wall by now. Where can I get this!!!
By: Kate on March 10, 2017
I wonder if you can get this on ...

Wow! That's some oil!! Does Williams and Sonoma stock it?

As always, you know how to have a surprise ending to a story. I never saw it coming!

2013... and you admit to the fact you haven't been eating much spaghetti since. I hope you're both okay. ;-)

:-) Those Italians! You said you had not been eating much spaghetti of late but didn't mention if you had used the oil again! :-) Greetings from London.
