New Toys for My Great Passions

Over the last couple of weeks, we've been actively trying to do our part to save the economy by spending, spending and more spending. If you've been visiting our blog, you'll know that two of my favorite passions are photography and cooking. So being in a buying mood, we (as in Andy =) ) bought a new Nikon DSLR camera, two awesome lenses, a stainless steel All-Clad pan , and a pasta roller/cutter attachment for the Kitchenaid mixer. I think we've done enough for the economy for now. =(

To celebrate the arrival of my new toys, we made fresh pasta on a weeknight. It actually didn't take as long as last time: the purchases have definitely paid off.

Here is my egg well

The finished product. We substituted the Tuna with Tilapia and added some baby broccoli.
