If you've learned anything about me, it's that I do things the hard way :)
Tonight I decided to start "getting to know my food" rather than just eat it, so (after dinner) I hand-mixed, rolled, and cut some semolina pasta. Yep, smashed the egg right into the flour on the counter and got my hands into it. I didn't quite roll it thin enough to be able to read the headlines through it, but almost....
Okay, I know I can buy good stuff with no additives and save a LOT of time. Or buy a food processor and a pasta roller. (Notice that both of those sentences contain the word "buy"?) But this was a mini lesson in what goes into us each day, and not taking everything for granted. I'm sure I won't be doing this all the time, but it felt good to make this batch tonight. Besides, I've nothing to watch on tv ;)
Four servings, 2 fettucini, 2 spaghetti
I'm thinking plain, with a little olive oil and parsley, for lunch tomorrow. Maybe with a side of broccoli.
P.S. Many years ago, my sons, husband, and I made pasta for Christmas Eve. It was great! I still have that video.
