emily enjoyed the eating lol (its heart warming to see her using her injured hand and arm even if it is just pasta....its more than she would of done a week ago...it builds hope in my heart)
and here it all is...we made two doughs and two different pasta cuts.
we hope to get 4 meals out of the angel hair and maybe 3 from the fatter one. it will dry on the rack (our washing rack) for about a day and a half and i will store it in big tupperware containers until its gone... :)
we r currently eating the angel hair with bol sauce and its YUM!...
making pasta is always going to be more expensive than buying the dried packet. but its the cheaper way to make the ones stored in the fridge section of the supermarket. the latina ones. which is the ones we like to eat mostly, or the gourmet packets
each dough cost me about $4.50 maybe a little more, we used savings brand flour, and regular free range eggs.
so if we get 4 meals out of the angel hair it cost me $1.20 (we r a family of 2 adults and 2 kids)
not bad i say
if u eat organic it will of course cost a little more.
and out of all the eggs whites we have left over...dan is going to turn them into a desert.. :)
we hope to keep making pasta now, in big batches so we only have to do it once every other month..:)
ps my bread making is getting better the changes i made to the dough in the below post worked a treat...its getting pretty light and fluffy...im off in search of a slightly bigger loaf tin now
