I do not cook by notches on the stove.. I will start on a medium high, then turn the heat down, to a slow boil...
A slow boil is just that----slow bubbles
A roaring boil is--- fast bubbles
a medium is in-between..

It is best to learn by not going by notches... go by how the stove is cooking... that may be your issue.. you may not be cooking it at a high enough boil, to evaporate the liquid..

A roaring boil is--- fast bubbles {also called a "rolling boil," because the surface of the water looks like it is rolling}
a medium is in-between..

And tiny bubbles that barely break the surface is a simmer.

Well, got my second Instacart delivery...and had a bowl of cereal. I wanted something yummy, WAY easy, and not heavy. Cereal met the criteria!

My preteen made lunch (apple cider glazed pork chops, green beans and au gratin potatoes) for Father's Day, and my husband picked up dinner (spicy wings, a salad kit, and macaroni salad). I didn't have to cook at all today. :)

I made eggs Benedict for lunch (it was supposed to be breakfast, but my husband slept in a lot), with his mom's sauce as opposed to regular hollandaise (and a dairy free version for me). That was my Father's day big meal. So for dinner I scrounged around and had a bowl of cinnamon toast crunch, pretzels and hummus, and a peach. My husband had leftover pizza.

Practiced with anther Knorr pasta sides packet. This time I kept it on Medium and stir, stir, stir towards the end like artiemom artiemom told me to. It thickened better than usual, but I would still like it a bit thicker. Maybe cook it longer than the 11 minutes it calls for next time.
