Silly Straw

Lucy won some silly straws for practicing piano.  She loves making crazy, or should I say, silly, designs and trying them out.

Noah had some buddies over.  They played Lego's for hours.
They loved it and I loved it.

Homemade Spaghetti

I made spaghetti!
I did not know how easy it could be.
Did you know noodles are just eggs and flour?
I mixed:
125g all purpose flour (the instructions were in Italian)
and 1 large egg.
I had to add maybe a tablespoon of water since be dough was dry.
I kneaded and kneaded and kneaded and kneaded.
Then let it rest.
I put it through the pasta maker a few times and then cut it in the spaghetti side.
I boiled it in salted water for just a few minutes.
I added mushrooms, olive oil, garlic and parsley.
yum, yum, yum and yum.

I can't wait to make noodles for lasagna.

Already, 2015?  Seems impossible.

I woke up with my mind on my blog this morning.  I'm not sure why, I think about the blog often.  I like connecting with my readers, I like posting about the things we do and my random thoughts. 2014 was a sparse year for blogging.  It was a great year, it had it's ups and downs, like anything, but for the most part, it was a wonderful year.

We ate snacks and played Catch Phrase.  Yummy and HILARIOUS.

Here's to more blogging!
