From Scratch

Last week whilst retrieving something from my parents basement my mother had requested I stumbled across the long forgotten pasta machine. I had asked if I could borrow it long ago and somehow it never made it as far as the pantry, well since I was down there I snatched it up and took it to my car probably forgetting what I was sent down for in the first place. That said, Grace, Chase and I made pasta last Wednesday.
Chase took great joy in making the whole wheat pasta it had an insanely amazing nuttyness and different texture than the typical hard semolina pasta we use.
Since Chase and I started seeing one another 5 (!) months ago Wednesday nights have typically been our pasta nights.
We have tried a variety of different kinds, ziti, angel hair, rotini etc with various different sauces but Wednesday night fettucinni with meatball marrinara has to be my favorite thus far.


Its is yet again another Wednesday night. Perhaps we'll shoot for ravioli?
But wait its Cinco de Mayo!

Walk A Mile In My Shoes

Grace LOVES to put on my heels and hear them click click click on the tile.
