Maybe it's because I had a cortisone injection into my left knee yesterday after nearly four months of doctor appointments, x-rays, MRI, NSAIDS, and Physical Therapy...I felt ambitious today so made vegetarian onion soup with mushrooms au gratin (had two nieghbors for dinner, one who is from France. The soup passed with approval)
Also made homemade pasta. Tagliatelle and Pappardelle. 300 grams of all purpose organic flour, 200 grams of semolina flour, 5 whole eggs, a little water as needed (because our climate is so dry, the flour may need extra moisture).
Took some videos of that my technique. OK so Pasta Grannies I'm not.
I have a pasta machine but sometimes I just prefer rolling out the dough by hand. It gives me a connection to my heritage and how that did it for centureis.
The pasta board and rolling pin were my mom's. Dad made them for her more than 50 years ago. They are prized possessions and I am reminded of her whenever I use them.
Nor am I a videographer. So here goes nothing (and sorry, that
background noise is hubby running the vacuum cleaner in the
dining/living room. I'm not complaining, I hate to vacuum.) Also you should probably fast forward a lot as I didn't edit. I'm not one to talk incessantly like some cooking videos; I don't know what to say. A picture is worth...
