um. you have a child who kknows how to fold tortellini.
i bow down before your food majesty.

Bow not because I have a son who knows how...bow because I have a son who'd rather fold tortellini than perform his daily ablution.
I mean, folding tortellini is a snap* to anyone who has led a life riddled with construction paper projects.
* "Alright, NOS. You lay out the pasta like a baseball diamond. Now put a glob of stuffing on the pitcher's mound. Get water and draw the baselines. Now take home plate and bring it on top of 2nd base. Squish all the air out. Now bring 1st base over to 3rd base and give it a little squish to stick 'em together. Got that? Great! Do this whole trayful and then take a shower.

But you know what? I need to eat that, right now.

You're in luck as it's summah ovah theah. If you have a lump of pasta dough in the freezer (and you ought) or can buy some fresh pasta sheets, this thing makes itself.
What I lo-o-o-o-ove about it is that it looks fussier and more complicated than it is.
About why that sort of thing appeals to me, more anon.

Hey! I thought you were allergic to corn. Or is it just that you hate corn syrup?
Joke posted at 9:26 AM, March 01, 2007
I am. It's just that sometimes one makes a sacrifice.
P.S. I am paying the price this morning. I feel like a bear in need of a convenient tree against which to scratch my back.
P.P.S. I also hate corn syrup.

What? No shower?
Did he at least wash his hands?

Yes, he washed his hands prior to shaping these. Yes, he was sent--under modest protest, admittedly--to take a well-earned shower immediately after shaping these.
Honestly, you'd think I'd let him remain in PJs for 3 days straight...

Oh I love those baseball pasta instructions. I was explaining baseball to my oldest just the other night. Then he ran off to play some cricket.
Tortellini always remind me of The Flying Nun.

I have a cousin who lives in Stuart, FL.
You live near there?
Maybe I'll come visit him and invite myself to dinner at your house.
Yeah, that's the ticket. :P

Does "near" = "about 2 hours"?

We drive around four hours every three months to visit the parents.
Two hours is nothing!
