The party problem: You don't have enough spoons for everyone who wants coffee.

The party trick: Use uncooked spaghetti as disposable stirrers.

If you've already dirtied most of your utensils during dinner and you're just not sure you'll have enough spoons for everyone to swirl cream and sugar into their coffee, don't worry — look to your pantry to save the day.

Uncooked spaghetti noodles are your answer. At less than $2 a box, they're a great alternative to spoons and you don't need to specially order them the way you might need to for those plastic or wooden stirrers. You can even break each noodle in half if you're worried about wasting too much food.

Try it this Thanksgiving. Your guests will be impressed by your ability to use your noodle. Your pasta noodle, that is.
