A Pasta-Present for the Future – a sad tale.

A pasta-present for the future.

The pasta-making machine was a brilliant idea
And as brilliant ideas can be totally useless…
This one was.
Nothing wrong with the machine itself;
Just the idea that ‘somebody’ would want to ‘make’ their own pasta
When it is so inexpensive and handy to buy any of the myriad shaped, sized and coloured pastas in the local Supermarket.
It was a thoughtful gift
But, now it is gathering dust
And rust (possibly)
In a dark cupboard somewhere –
The sort of place where dreams go to slowly fade away.

  1. I’ll cross that one off my Christmas present list, then 🙂 x

  2. That’s gnocchi usual run-of-the-mill gift. If we make a total mezzi rigatoni of it, we can always use it as a mangle 🙂 x
