….and I'm not talking about the entertainer. Seriously, there's a new adventure every day. Unfortunately, I don't have enough time or clarity of thought to always write about them. Eventually I'll get better at that…maybe.

Yesterday's adventure: Making fresh pasta. I came across a cheap bargain pasta roller a few months ago and regretted not buying it. I was thrilled to find it at the closeout store yesterday when I stopped in (looking for something else, of course). I was so excited to try it out, I changed the dinner menu.

I considered letting the boys help me, but I didn't want to get in over my head. To my surprise it was super easy. Two ingredients and about 20 minutes resulted in some fabulous noodles that were delish with homemade pasta sauce and turkey meatballs. The machine rolls and cuts the dough into various thicknesses. It is manual, but only requires a few passes through each attachment. If I become a master pasta maker I may consider buying the attachment for my stand mixer, but for now I can use the arm toning. JB and MC are excited to help me make more this weekend.
