Jeff had his heart set on mac and cheese tonight, but then I realized that we were out of pasta. I didn't want to go to the store for one item....so the girls looked up how to make their own pasta...and here it is:
1 tsp. salt
out on work surface.
Make a well.
2 BEATEN extra large eggs
into the center of the well.
Mix with finger tips, then knead for 8-10 minutes.
Roll into a ball, place in bowl and cover with plastic wrap.
Let rest for 30 minutes.
Keep your rolling pin floured.
Emma was using my favorite rolling pin, a glass one that you can fill with ice cold water,
it makes rolling much easier...so the girls tell me! ;o)
Let rest another 15 minutes.
Use a pizza cutter to cut into thin 1/4" or less strips.
Let rest another 5 minutes.
Boil your water and add pasta, it only takes a few minutes for them to cook.
They will rise to the top when they are finished.
Be sure to check one first to see if it is done before draining and rinsing.
Olivia grated some cheese, chopped a little onion, mixed it with some milk and butter then added it to the pasta, while Emma cooked the deer meat and made the veggies!
I'm so glad God gave me daughters!!!
This is a book we gave Olivia a couple of years ago, it is WONDERFUL!
Lots of great pictures and good instructions.
Necessity is the mother of invention!
After making this wonderful meal, Emma realized that we are out of dish liquid! :o)
She came running in and asked, "How do we make our own dish soap?" lol
I LOVE IT!
Olivia's cooking tip of the day:
Don't taste meat from a hot pan...you might burn your tongue!
Think I should get a picture of that??? lol
Emma's tip of the day:
Don't dirty any more dishes than you want to wash!
