Homemade Pasta

 Homemade pasta noodles are amazing to make and amazing to eat.
The recipe is simple, 1-large egg to 1-cup flour.
Once the dough is ready it needs to be covered and allowed to rest for 3 or 4 hours.
I have a set of pasta cutters with roller that works on my Kitchen Aid mixer; which makes rolling out the dough so very easy.
I love how you can make your pasta noodles as long as you want;
And as thin as you like. 
 When cut, the noodles look just like hair.
 Ideally the noodles should hang to dry;
 But I place mine on clean dishtowels when cooking them right away.
 Homemade noodles cook in 4 to 5 minutes.
And they taste amazing!
I also make my own homemade spaghetti sauce using canned tomato sauce, spices and ground beef.

The Early Bird Gets The Worm

I've always known when it comes to shopping yard sales and garage sales the earlier you go the better; as the good items sell first. Well, I now know this is true too for thrift stores.
 With a few extra minutes on my hands I stopped by a local thrift store one morning and found this cabinet just waiting for me! It was in new condition with shelves on the inside; which I plan to use for holding our piano music.
When I looked at the price tag I was amazed it was marked only $9.98.

Starting our Summer with a Little Vintage

During warm weather, when we run errands, we like to bring a small ice chest to carry drinks. And this year we will be using a vintage ice chest! It's called Alpine and makes me think of summer camping.
The style reminds me of a picnic basket.
 It has aluminum handles;
And a lid that completely detaches.
There is plenty of space inside for our drinks, such as tea and lemon-aid, and enough space to hold sandwiches on the days we want to take our lunch with us.
I'm so pleased with my vintage ice chest. Are you curious what I paid? It was marked $7.50 but was half off! I would have been willing to pay the regular price for such a fun ice chest :o)
