What Food Nerds Do For Fun...



We have a day off together - the first in forever and one of the last for awhile - and play with our mixer. Last spring, before the world imploded, we splurged with our tax refund on a Kitchen Aid Artisan Mixer and each selected an accessory. Sarge picked a meat grinder (and I threw a sausage stuffer in with it when I placed the order) and I picked a pasta maker. I used to have one of those hand crank jobs and got rid of it because it was kind of a pain in the ass. This baby makes it a whole lot easier and the outcome is, may I say? Delicious.

I HEAR FRESH PASTA COOKS IN LIKE 2 MINUTES....

Yeah, it is ridiculously fast. It cooks up in about six minutes. We did toss most of the first batch because it was too dry but the second batch we trusted our intuition a little more and it was perfect.

Thanks for reading!
