Making & cooking pasta: what passion have you recently rediscovered?

My kids and I made handmade, homemade pasta for Mother’s Day dinner. Well, I did use the pasta machine seen in the photo.  That pasta  machine has been moved thousands of miles and managed to stay in the bottom of a box or the back of a cupboard for years. Finally, it re-emerged and I rediscovered something. A passion for cooking pasta.

Really, its one thing to talk about the old days in regards to things I used to do. But, rediscovering something and sharing it with my kids opened my eyes to a part of myself my kids have not seen so much.

Early in our marriage I used to cook for a lot more. Over the years my ministry and family responsibilities have squeezed me out of not cooking but cooking for the joy of it.

What former passion have you recently rediscovered?

  1. I love to bake bread, but seriously, who has the time. A good sourdough can take up to 15 hours done the right way. So, I decided to start myself a sourdough starter and get back into it.
