Watch Honey Boo Boo's Family Make 'Sketti'
It's apparently spaghetti with butter and ketchup
If you haven't been watching the crazy reality TV show that is Here Comes Honey Boo Boo (seriously, where have you been?), here's a brief introduction: the show features Honey Boo Boo, a 6-year-old pageant performer actually named Alana, her family, and their strange home habits in McIntyre, Ga.
In this clip below, Mama June makes a recipe called "sketti," which is actually spaghetti topped of with a sauce made with a ton of Country Crock and some ketchup. Apparently it's a family favorite. (For the all the haters, June Shannon seems to not care about any criticism, telling the AP in an interview, "It's small town living. I don't have any trouble with anybody here or whatever, but people are going to have opinions. I mean, that's everyday life.")
Turns out, the family survives on $80 a week for groceries, which is fairly impressive, but somehow we don't think it's a particularly healthy diet. Still, there's a takeaway tip for knowing when the pasta is done (according to Mama June). Throw a strand against the wall, and f it sticks, it's ready to eat. Watch below.
