pasta night, take two... [Feb. 11th, 2011|02:37 pm]
Verminius Rex
I'm playing around with pasta again. Last night's 4H meeting nixed my elaborate pasta dinner, tonight I will succeed. I'll finish the prep work after fetching the kids in a bit, actually cooking everything up shouldn't take too long.

One minor change to my pasta dough recipe is to always crack the eggs into a measuring cup. Most large eggs are about 2 oz, but it varies. This time it ended up being about 5 oz, so I added a touch of water to get the hydration ratio correct. Today's dough ended up with a wonderful texture since I got the hydration right. I look forward to running it through the roller in a couple hours.

Today is a library trip, I need to write down some authors that I want to look up. Here's hoping that some new releases are on the shelf.
