The most work these attachments leave for me is simply cracking a few eggs.I love watching him do the hard part! (I like this picture because it looks like I have on MC Hammer pants. I don't... in case you were wondering.)And eventually, voila! Absolutely delicious homemade pasta! I don't think there's a better tasting thing in the world.
If you would like to make your own pasta try this recipe: I bet you already have all the ingredients!
2.5 C flour 3 eggs 1Tbsp Veg. Oil 1 tsp salt
sift flour onto counter top into a mountain. crack three eggs into a well that you have made in the center of the flour. add veg oil and then salt. start mixing with your fingers in the center of the dough and eventually work in all of the flour. cover dough ball and let rest for an hour. roll out flat and thin. hang flat thin dough over a dowel or a broom handle or the back of a kitchen chair or something so gravity can help stretch it. Let it stretch for 30 min to an hour. Roll the flat thin piece of stretched dough into one long roll. (think cinnamon roll) and then cut that roll into thin strips. unroll the strips and toss in flour. Let dry for up to two hours. Cook for 2-3 minutes in boiling water!

My mom and I went thrift store shopping yesterday! We had fun and found some things we had to have. I really do need this:
I also found a huge metal frame for my watercolor painting!
We both kind of fought over who was going to get the next couple of things:
Yep, it's a soap dispenser.And this... Oh.... this.... comes with the lamps and a round crushed velvet matching red bedspread too.

I don't know if you all remember that fateful day last March, March 21st to be exact, when I got that wretched haircut that made me resemble Johnny Depp in Willy Wonka.I know it was just how that awful woman styled it, but it still made me cry.
And then I just never went back. I was totally scarred and swore to myself that I was going to let my hair grow to Rapunzel's length before I let anyone do anything like that to me ever again. After ten months, a round of therapy and a support group later (not really), trust has been restored. And anyone in the Jackson area who is not going to Morgan Cook at Gloss on County Line Road is really really missing out. I highly recommend him. Bryan goes there too!
Have a good day.
