We like to make things from scratch (The Man makes it and I like to eat it).  We decided to try to make pasta.  The Man turned to our trusty red & white cookbook and realized that pasta is pretty easy...basically flour and eggs.  We added some spinach & smokey red pepper seasoning to it.

Drying the pasta...we ran out of room so we had to lay it out on paper towels

While we were waiting for the pasta to dry, The Man made bread

He made a cinnamon & raisin loaf

The finished pasta dressed in homemade basil pesto

The pasta was delicious paired with peas and grilled steak

I'm not quite sure what I'm going to do when the man disappears under the water again...guess I have to learn to make bread!
