4:45 -- Check potatoes. Start dicing tomatoes for homemade sauce for the gnocchi. Bread pork chops and fry 5 minutes each side before putting in the oven for 25 minutes.
5:00 -- Pull out the potatoes, peel, mash up with the gnocchi ingredients, form dough, cut into little pieces. Get water boiling to cook the little sticky buggers.
5:15 -- Hands in tomatoes. Avrie cries. Turn and look:
5:17 -- Nearly cry. Tell her to wait and put some gnocchi in the boiling water.
5:32 -- Alternating between removing gnocchi and hair. Toss gnocchi flop into the garbage disposal. Get out spaghetti noodles. Remove basil from the fridge for the homemade spaghetti sauce...frozen solid. $2.99 down the drain. Cole is hungry. Thaw some milk and have Nolan feed him a bottle.
5:42 -- Hair finally free. Didn't have to cut any...whew.
6:00 -- Husband walks in door and wife tells him "You'll smile and eat it and say "Mmmmmmm". Or else."
6:05 -- Eat a lovely meal of perfect pork chops and lovely homemade sauce on store-bought pasta.
6:25 -- Pump.
6:40 -- Head out the door with Avrie in tow to meet my friend for a meal swap. I still have pasta sauce on my face and am still in my yoga pants and sweatshirt. Thank goodness I have friends who understand!!
**Has anyone successfully made gnocchi??
