Who ever said that making dinner couldn't be a family affair?
Yesterday we decided to make homemade pasta. Well I guess it wasn't really a "gee let's make pasta, that would be soooooooooooooooo much fun to do" kind of moment, but more of a..."What gives? You mean we're out of angel hair? How is that possible? Don't we have a million boxes of the stuff? Well, I guess we'll make some noodles since we've already invited Grandma and Grandpa Dahl for dinner and there's not a lot of other choices in the house", kind of moment.
I'm glad we were out of pasta. The kids had SO much fun helping to make it. All of them took turns cranking the handle and even JM got in on the action, every time a noodle fell to the ground. He'd take it and start flipping it around like it was a fish! Tracey even filmed, so I'm sure the pasta video will be surfacing one of these days soon.
We had so much fun making it, that I think we're going to make homemade chicken noodle soup for dinner and make another round of noodles when the kids get home from school. Oh how I love me some good, thick, homemade noodles in homemade chicken soup, and I'm sure the kids wont complain at being put to work either! Happy times, I tell ya....happy times.
And here is the awesome vid my man shot!
