    Alternative uses part 2

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Wanting to try make pasta again for dinner tonight I did the dough making, the rolling and thought oh crap where am I going to put this wood bar to hang the pasta on?
    The flat top of the group handles make for a perfect place to hang the bar and pasta on and within easy reach, roll on mushroom and bacon sauce.... But Ill use a pot and the stove for that :P

    Another great use of a commercial, heated too!

    Sorry Abbey :)

    My gosh thats a humungus machine...that is in your home isnt it?
    I found that oven shelves (i.e. a frame with parallel but not perpandicular bars of metal) G-clamped to the side of the bench offer lots of space for hanging pasta :)

    Lizzi,
    I had the most distinct pleasure of being in one of those hallowed of places that takes "your poor tired wretched masses and filtered out machines" and also provides brand new shiny ones that requires the services of one trained in the black arts of electrickery to have installed, (20amp line for a BIG commercial) and being the chatty person that I am(you can tell by the way I drivel online) I managed to secure myself something of a reanimation apprentiship(I cant spell that word) and basically the jobs that take to damn long and would only be done by someone with a lust for machines that Im increasingly developing. The two poor souls in question by chance happen to be ones that Id buy.
    The LSM I have almost has its prob sorted, intake solenoid cactus, be sorted more if I was able to lift the blighter! So Im taking a brief sojourn with singles, although I am engaged I wont be "buying into the singles" ;)
    Telling them the story of taking a boiler to car lovers won them over I think perhaps?
    Or maybe they just feel sorry for me, but, I still get to play with more machines,
    I still win :)

    Green pasta...leave in in a humid location for a few weeks (actually, a steamy coffee machine would be perfect)...Whallah, green hairy pasta
    Is that that green fettucini stuff (flat pasta about 8mm wide)? I had a look through recipe books but couldnt find anything. Sorry

    Green!.........Use Spinach

    The name, probably something like, Pasta "Verde" [Italian for Green]


    Those frozen packets [250g] from the supermarkup are easy.
    Unfreeze, add a splash of water and puree it, then add it to the flour/water/eggs.

    You will have to make some adjustments to the balance.
    If your doing a 500g pasta use half a packet [I think some would use less], but provided the water/flour balance is right it always seems to work out ok..

    I love using squid ink too!
