baby makes pasta

he likes to crank it really fast.

this is our pasta machine. we use it heavily. these are egg noodles. we like to use our eggs.

tabitha is putting extra noodles in the freezer for after rome is born.

this is our zero mile local meal.

the carrot raised bed was a huge success. the carrots turned out fabulously.

locally produced pasta. imported flour (in bulk--lower carbon footprint)

the kids are always drawing pictures of our family.

see the baby in tabitha's belly? see all the smiles? happy family..

this is kassi's version.

they decide their own themes.

kassi got new hair clips.

she squealed the dolphin squeal when she first saw them. dogs are still howling in the distance.

she had to wear them all at once.

toothy boy

boca enjoying her new pen.

I love the pictures of your family, including the ones that your family draws of your family. You are the modern Little House on the Prairie to me - in terms of wholesomeness,love, hard work and endurance. Is that a house in the bubble over the picture of Tabitha?

madeline, yeah that is a house. home and family seems to be the theme here. i don't think quite as wholesome as little house on the prairie though.

I love this post! I laughed out loud at the pictures your children drew of your family - with the little baby in the belly. That was just priceless!

Oh, we have the same pasta maker!

K is so funny with all the clips on at once! The drawings are great-- it's interesting to see their conception of Tabitha being pregnant and cool that they drew in Rome before he is actually born.

How does Tabitha make the pasta dough? I know Madeline said she uses her stand mixer, but when I tried it mine broke. :( I love the homemade pasta, but the dough is soooo tough on my wrists.

BTW, tortillas are super, super easy to make, and sooo delicious. I just use 3 cups of flour, 1/3 cup veggie shortening, pinch of salt and 1 cup warm water. Oh, and lots of flour while rolling out.

I don't know if you have mentioned it before and I got the idea from your blog but somewhere someone mentioned making their own noodles at home. I bought Mrs. Abbey a pasta maker that looks exactly like yours and she loves it. I love the results. It is hard for me now to even think of eating store bought when fresh noodles are so much tastier.

ron, they are great we love ours.

wendy, thanks i'm really proud of our family.

jessica, thank you, kassi loves all her presents. she also loves rome's baby out fit. she carries it around and dances with it.

danielle, tabitha will make a "guest" post regarding pasta making very soon. she says it is too complicated to "just reply" about.

ed thanks there is nothing like home made pasta. especially using tons of eggs in a really healthy way that the kids love.
