A new hobby

One of our sweet aunts sent us this pasta maker recently and we have been having fun making our own pasta. At first I was a little intimidated thinking about the work involved. Turns out it’s actually pretty easy and fresh pasta is really wonderful. I’m going to begin to experiment with different kinds of grains and add ins like spinach. I’m pretty excited about all the different possibilities. Of course I don’t know if this is something I can do all the time but what a great treat for when I do have a little bit of extra time on my hands.

The whole family got involved in this task and had a great time!

I used our toaster oven as a make shift drying rack.
