Making Pasta

Yesterday, Tara was looking through some books which a friend gave to us. She discovered a pasta making / cooking book. She decided that she wanted to make pasta.

This was perfect, because a few years ago, I got us a pasta maker. Very nice, but way more work that I expected, so we used it once or twice and then it joined the stack of 'Kitchen Appliance Which Seemed Like a Good Idea at The Time'. I still loved the way it looked and worked, but didn't use it really.

Tara got it out of the cupboard, and made beautiful and great tasting pasta. Did I mention how I love having kids old enough to do things like this?

She also was drooling over his Japanese cook book, so I hope we'll get many great Japanese meals in our near future ^^.

I was hoping my kids would enjoy and love to cook... so what happened? LOL.

Both girls 'like' to cook but they both hate to follow recipes. (Hmmm maybe they ARE like me). But they almost never DO cook or bake. They say "Please make it Mom... I want it, I just don't want to MAKE it"
