pasta and radiohead

so, my husband, who has excellent listening to his wife skills, brought me a surprise on friday ... the kitchenaid attachments I have been drooling over for a couple of months now. at least it feels like it's been a couple of months. I am not very good at waiting. in any case, I was super duper happy about it and made pasta that was amazing. it takes a bit to get the hang of it, and it feels like once you start squishing the dough from the plates that it will seriously never end, but ...

the coolest part was that there was some kind of wiggy thing that happened at the sears till, and he got the accesories for just $100 bucks. oh yah, baby. fully half the regular price, including a $30 online rebate.

I can already hear myself getting pleasantly pasta-plump.

my one additional recommendation, aside from telling you that if you haven't already considered the merits of owning a kitchenaid, you want one, is that listening to radiohead helps you make better pasta. for real.

I just stopped by to say hello and to thank you for the "Preparing Him for the Other Woman, by Sheri Rose Shepherd." I haven't read it. Thanks! It's a big job we've got!

I'm drooling over those attachments! You lucky gal!!
