    I thought of making pasta, but hubby said why, it is cheap to buy.

    I really gotta think of a new gadget for this year. The past couple years I have only gotten things my hubby knows about, cellphone, external hard drive, etc.

    This pasta making sound REALLY complicated to me right now - but have to say I'm enthralled by it all. I've been thinking a lot lately about trying it and think before I invest in all the equipment that I'd like to try the hand rolled and cut ones first. Do you think the semolina flour is the best to use.

    Hey tasb - good idea, I used to let DH think about what to get me on his own but soon discovered that didn't work so well (though I never told him that) but now I get my list ready WAY before the holidays an start telling him early I really want this or that - and even telling him where to find it. An "Surprise" it shows up on Christmas morning - I've been doing this for a couple of years now - only took me 20 years to figure it out icon_wink.gif

    You can totally do the homemade pasta! It really is super easy. I promise.

    I have used my mom and grandmother's "recipe" for years. One of those that's never been written down until one day I realized I was old and I'd probably forget it if I didn't. icon_lol.gif

    About a month ago I tried another chef's recipe for the noodles because it used egg yolks instead of all whole eggs, and I wanted to see if it made a difference. We really enjoyed it and I've used it again since then. I make the dough in the KA mixer and it's a cinch. I always just use A/P flour, but semolina would be good too.

    Here I'm using kindcook's recipe for Delicious Homemade Egg Noodles, Pets'R'Us' recipe for Crock Pot Chicken or Turkey Stock and my Mom's Easy Chicken & Homemade Noodles for the whole dish. I've also used leftover rotisserie chicken from the grocery store for this recipe to save time cooking the chicken. This photo shows the wide-cut noodles, but the last time I made them I cut them 1/16 wide and they were like thin spaghetti. I just needed more noodles that night because we were having company over.

    As usual that photo is lovely, gosh Tink - you should take that up professionaly. I'm diffently going to try the noodles, I'm thinking they've got to be so much better than the dry boxes.

    You've all given me the courage to run with it and that's the first thing I'm going to try when I get home. We leave for WA on Friday monring, will stay with DD the first night so we can do Thanksgiving shopping before heading to the hills and home.

    Can't wait to see friends and family and spend a few weeks in my own kitchen, really missing my "gadgets"

    Oooh! I'm so excited for you to go home for the holiday!
    You're gonna have so much fun with new gadgies and seeing the family. icon_biggrin.gif

    Oh yes I am, I've got my new Ninja Crock Pot waiting, the lunch box crock, the jelly maker and even that little thing that grows basil. I've been busy this last 3 months. DH will be thrilled to get me OFF the computer for awhile and just playing with the grandkids icon_wink.gif

    I'm glad you got the herb grower. I can't wait to hear how you like it. Considering my Grim Reaper of a black thumb, I could really use one.

    That is so cute Katie and looks easy to use - this is the first time I saw that.

    I found something pretty cool yesterday while searching William Sonoma for a bread pan - it's called, are you ready for this: Dough Gloves" apparently you put them on, flour them and the dough rather pastry or bread doesn't stick, and the best part is they are a great price too, so of course I've ordered them.

    Tink, I too have that "black thumb" of gardening, but I got the big growing system (forgot the name icon_redface.gif ) and it was awesome with great results so thinking the small one would be great for over here, specially since I can't get fresh basil or cilantro.

    I once watched the Yonana's infomercial while up late one night. Looked like the perfect gadget for anyone with an ice cream craving. I was thinking specifically of my sister, who has to have a bowl of ice cream for dessert every night. I rarely eat ice cream or frozen yogurt, and mainly I'm allergic to bananas, so my consumption of them is very limited. It wouldn't be for me, but I did consider it as a gift.
    I'd forgotten all about it though. Maybe that's something I should put on the calendar to order for her next year.
    I'll look forward to hearing how you like it. You know you can't always trust the people on the infomercials. icon_lol.gif

    Those pastry gloves look really cool too. The homemade noodles recipes are the kind that will get a little sticky, and blobbed all over your hands before you get the kneading done. You'll have to test them out and let me know what you think. icon_smile.gif

    Oh I will; don't know why they caught my eye = YES I do, it was right after I'd been kneading some dough and had just finished cleaning up the mess,

    Those dough gloves remind me of the pastry sock that my grandmother slipped over her rolling pin. She kept that and the piece of canvas that she rolled out pie crust on in the freezer.

    Oh! Yeah.... my mom used to have a roller stocking too. icon_smile.gif I don't remember her doing the freezer trick though.

    Just arrived home late yesterday afternoon after the travel from H_ _ _, and a 12 hour delay on an already 22 hour of travel. icon_evil.gif

    But home now and couldn't wait to unwrap all the things I've had waiting for me after 4 months. DH was more than a little amazed at seeing it all in one spot and all I had icon_redface.gif But in fairness to me, over half of it is for Christmas gifts as I did all that on line or at least most of it. I'm going to be using almost everything for my Holiday preps. Thinking DH might ban me from the computer after this surprise icon_wink.gif

    I can totally imagine your DH's face when he saw the pile of packages. Of course, that would be because I've seen that face before myself. icon_lol.gif
