Now I just have to find a home for all the artwork that used to be on these walls. It's going to take a while for the dust to settle after this re-arrange!

Separate ball into 2 pieces. Work half into a pancake flat shape. Now it's time to start working it through the pasta machine. Keep running through the machine until you have worked up to the #5 setting.
Now you just choose what kind of pasta you would like. Spaghetti... Linguini.... Ravioli...
Homemade pasta is going to cook a lot faster than dried pasta. You will want to liberally salt the water because we didn't put any salt in the actual pasta. Joe made a yummy shrimp, country ham, and brussels sprout mixture to go with our pasta. It was delish! Pictures for preparation of that follow:
Once onions are good add in chopped brussels sprouts and let them wilt. Remove everything from pot. (At this point you can start boiling your pasta.) Use the same large pot that you've been using - there's lots of yummy flavor we don't want to miss! Saute' shrimp until they are almost done; return your brussels sprout mixer to the pot. Add some lemon juice, chicken stock, and ground black pepper (no salt needed because of our country ham). Add your pasta in and toss. Garnish with some freshly grated parmesan. And viola yummy healthy pasta dish!!

Jonathan also got a new game! It's called Ladder Golf and it's fun!! I want one for the house, Joe was an ol' natural! He won the first three games in a row. So you throw the balls to try and hit the rings of the ladder. 1st ring is 1 point - 2nd ring 2 pts and 3 ring 3 points. First one to hit 21 points on the head WINS!

To give a little background, I am interior designer by trade but not currently working in the field. So you know what that means... I am itching to do some things around our house since I am not getting my creative juices out in other ways! My wonderful husband, Joe is a chef. An amazing chef at that! I look forward to sharing his creations as well!
So here's to our experiences in eating, drinking and decorating! Cheers!
