Making Pasta

Earlier this week DOB was sitting at his desk around lunchtime when a co-worker stopped by and the following conversation ensued:

CW: So, what's for lunch today?
DOB: I don't know yet, but my wife made it, so it's got to be good.
CW: Well, that's a good attitude to have.
DOB: Yep, yep. (Opening bag) Ah, macaroni and cheese. Homemade. The best.
CW: Oh, yeah?
DOB: Yep, she even makes the noodles from scratch. In fact, to save time and effort, she rolls the dough and then pokes out the middle. That way she makes macaroni and spaghetti at the same time!

Very clever! Far funnier than the silly anecdotes in most cooking magazines.

We actually did use to make noodles from scratch. It's an all-day proposition.

The only homemade pasta I consider worth the effort is homemade egg noodles to go in chicken soup . . . mmmm. (Plus they're quite easy.) I really should do that soon here. DOB loves chicken soup.
