It’s a cold, rainy day in Boston, perfect for snuggling up with a latte and my schoolwork. I’ve spent most of the morning learning about visitor motivation and how to promote engaging experiences for museum-goers… and making (more!) homemade pasta. We may never eat boxed pasta again.
Our fridge holds a little bit of tomato paste, left over from Gabe’s puttanesca sauce, so I decided to use it to color my pasta orange.
Then I had the bright idea to make spiral pasta. Rolling the pasta around a stick (a thermometer, in this case) proved rather tedious…
After creating a tray full of spiral pasta, I abandoned that idea in favor of something quicker: fall leaves!
Why not? Maybe oak and maple leaves will be as ubiquitous as bowties someday.
I also made some herbed fettuccine and froze it for another day. Maybe I’ll cook up the ridiculous-looking scraps for dinner tonight. :)
Now that the fun is over, it’s back to my studies…
