from Sunday evening

I've been thinking about making pasta since I took a class about it at The Pantry a while back. When my sister asked me what I wanted for Christmas, I asked for a pasta machine. Since opening the gift, I've admired it in its box on a shelf, and daydreamed about using it. Probably not until after hockey season, I've told myself. We're just too busy this time of year.

Yesterday, unexpectedly, Abbott's scheduled game in another town got cancelled. So he read a (an entire) book. Cal and Alexi worked on the Lego Imperial Shuttle Cal got for Christmas (recommended for ages 16 +). I did a long-overdue overhaul of the playroom. The cats reveled in it all. Then I got to work on pasta dough. Abbott joined me in the kitchen and said that, actually, he'd like to make the pasta. So I sat at the table and we chatted away the rest of the afternoon while he worked.

I hope your weekend was a nice one.

This is wonderful. Homemade pasta. Abbott looks like a pro in the kitchen.
