Pasta Making Day!

Yippee!!! Time for pasta again! This time, I stayed at home, borrowing my sister's KitchenAid pasta maker. I felt like a little kid in a candy shop! My oldest son was at school, so I enlisted the "help" of my 2-year-old daughter and somewhat-grumpy husband.

So much fun! And really, so incredibly easy. The KitchenAid truly does all the work. I love it!

She was in serious danger of getting her fingers chopped off as she kept sticking them around the roll of pasta dough--she's a fast little thing. (And yes, that is indeed lip gloss smeared all over her mouth--she's compulsive).

El Hub smiling for the camera--if that's the only way to get a smile, I have zero guilt about that!!

Also, I don't have one of those cute little wooden pasta racks, so I improvised. :)

The rule is that when you make fresh pasta, you have to eat some along the way. Rule according to Laura. I'm just doing what I'm told. I'm a good girl like that! ;)

After I finished the first batch of pasta, we invited my parents over to join us for dinner. Later in the day, I determined that I didn't think I had enough noodles for two more adults. So, we made another half batch and this time my son got to be the helper. However, he didn't believe me about the pasta-eating rule and refused to taste a noodle. Oh, well! Anyway, he proved to be much more helpful than my little girl--he practically did it all!
