About That Pasta Meal.

How about that photo?? Doesn't it look yummo??

Well I am very proud to say it was such a hit and the pasta came up beautiful. Very pleased with how the whole meal turned out.

So pasta is taken off the shopping list and I have another food item I can make from my chook eggs.

Until next time....hoo roo

Eggs Equal Pasta.

I have found another way to make good use of the chook eggs I collect each day.

Today I made ribbon pasta for the first time. Never even seen it being made or tasted home made pasta. Tonight we will be guinea pigs for my first pasta batch.

It was my birthday on Sunday and Pat bought me the pasta maker. Seeing the pasta dough going from this stage to.....

This stage and thinness, so easy was really interesting and way so cool.

The end result, ribbon pasta for tonights meal with cream chicken & mushroom sauce to go on top.

Even if it's a flop....I'll post a photo tomorrow of the end result of the whole meal.

Until next time....hoo roo

Are You A Trader?

Are you a trader?? I am. mrgreen

I love to swap produce from my backyard for other foods or something to help my garden out.

Last night my nephew called in with these oranges and mandarins from their own trees. For this lovely bounty of citrus, I gave them 3 dozen eggs.

No money was exchanged and we each off loaded a surplus of food and in return we got something we don't have in our own backyards.

What a great way to not have food go to waste.

Until next time....hoo roo
