Today we made our own pasta from scratch! Milanos, Little Italy, El Vicoletto et al should be shaking in their boots!! We transformed simple flour and eggs into a delicious spaghetti dish worthy of the best of them!
First we started with the flour, we gathered it into a little hill and made a well. Then we cracked an egg into it. Next we had to pull our sleeves up and get messy! Mixing both ingredients together, kneading it and then shaping it into a ball to make our pasta dough.
Next step was rolling out our pasta dough....
Some people say it's the pasta, some say it's the sauce. We liked both!
One happy customer!
Romy has been determined to get a swing (somewhere, anywhere!) in our class since last year, then lock down happened and it was put on hold. Finally it has happened!! My only regret is that I didn't get a photo of Romy testing it out!!
Thank you, Go raibh maith agat, Dziękuję Ci Romy on your perseverance - the lads love it!!
And we're cooking again! This week we decided to make flapjacks. Lots of steps involved in this recipes. Apricots had to be chopped, apples grated and oats, sugar, syrup had to be mixed in.
We baked them for about 40 mins and then added the chocolate topping. Best part of any cooking process is getting to lick the spoon!
Best friends still hanging out with each other!
And then we got to sample the goods!
Sometimes we are not too keen on certain things being done to us or our bodies. That's totally alright and it's a genuine feeling. I don't like the feeling of cotton wool in my hands! But I try to accept the sensation if I have to do it. Some of us don't like cutting our nails. Today Romy gently and slowly showed one of my guys how to allow his nails to be cut and filed. At the end of the lesson he was full on loving the foot massage she gave him!
