Homemade is the way to go (Part 1)....

I made the pasta today!  It came out incredible.  I will have a full post on it tomorrow but for now you can drool over this:

Sorry the plate is so messy!

Mr. Lucky claimed that this is the best pasta he's eaten in his whole life.  I will, somewhat shamelessly, admit that this really was fantastic. 

Talk with you soon!

Frustrating.....

I finally broke out the pasta machine that Mr. Lucky gave me for Christmas.  I was so excited until I tried to put it together. 


I am usually pretty handy and able to put things together without a problem until this, one picture and half a sentence as instructions just didn't do it.   I turned into a total spaz, I don't know what came over me.  So, I put this foolish contraption away until Mr. Lucky came home.  When he got home something clicked and I put the silly thing together in a second. 

Oh well, we'll be having fresh pasta for dinner tomorrow. 

Talk with you soon!

A little late.....

I know it's a little late but I wanted to wish everyone a very Happy New Year!  It feels like I have been non-stop since before Thanksgiving.  Between the holidays and Mr. Lucky's mom visiting for three weeks I felt dizzy.

I am finally getting a chance to start trying some saved recipes and doing some new crafts.  Mr. Lucky was very generous this Christmas. Some of my favorite gifts were a pasta roller, pasta making accessories and a sewing machine so I am sure you can imagine what I am focusing on the most.

Tomorrow I am going to try out the pasta machine and make some ravioli.  I will most definitely be taking some pictures and sharing my recipes. 

Talk with you soon!
