swamp_ophelia On a numbingly cold day, a good indoor activity turns out to be pasta making. Bit of a challenging adventure but we got there. Cannelloni now baking. 2d
  •   ali__stephens I'll have to get Alice to teach me... I've never made pasta! 2d
  •   swamp_ophelia @ali__stephens my sister @delly_j taught us last year. I could not believe the simplicity. 2d
  •   ali__stephens @swamp_ophelia I think I'll start with gnocchi (one day!) - don't need any extra equipment for that! :) You have a very talented family! 2d
  •   swamp_ophelia @ali__stephens funnily enough gnocchi scares the crap out of me. It looks so precise. At least with this the roller does all the work (we were given a 2nd hand roller). 2d
  •   ali__stephens I'll give it a go some day soon, and let you know how I go! (Recipe in Jamie Oliver's Cook looks straight forward enough...) 2d
  •   swamp_ophelia @ali__stephens when my system showed me it really did turn out to be blindingly simple. I wondered why I was overwhelmed. I kind of went oh, was that it? Like many things it just takes someone showing you how. 2d
  •   swamp_ophelia @ali__stephens I meant my sister! 2d
  •   sherlme_mc Love it 5h
