That was on Wednesday.
On Thursday I found a reciepe online.
On Friday I went to the grocery store to buy ingredients.
And FINALLY on Saturday I actually made the pasta.
Here's how it went down...
It turns out there is not much in pasta dough. Some flour, eggs, and olive oil.
You mix it all on a cutting board! Just smoosh it until it starts to look like dough, then knead.
I took pictures of the dough going through the flattening and cutting of the pasta machine but my camera magically erased them on its own. Hmm...
It looks like pasta! It cooked very quickly but it tasted mostly of flour and egg which essentially is all it was. All in all it's way less of a project to cook pasta out of a box but that's not as fun and messy!
In other news, I cleaned my apartment for 2.5 hours today, napped, went to a booksale, and paid all my monthly bills.
How's that for kicking procrastination in the face?
