Oh Lion Brand. How I love your cotton bamboo, but your center pull ball is a joke.

There is a great episode of  “30 Rock” where Jack (ie Alec Baldwin) gets into a fight with his brother (Nathan Lane).   As they start to trash talk, they eventually raise their fists and apparently they like to name their fists.  Now I have my own crazy names for my fists…so watch it buddy.

Last night I tried my hand at making gnocchi.  (I tried my hand at it about 5 years ago and it ended badly, remember I don’t handle rejection well)

I decided to try Mark Bittmans’ recipe because it was literally only potatoes and flour, I added a little lemon zest for some zing!  I figure that couldn’t be too hard, right?  Well, they turned out pretty lovely!  They were light and fluffy, only a little mushy.  Not sure if the mushy-ness was due to over cooking, or if they needed the egg that was present in every other recipe I looked at.  Either way they ended up being easy, and tasty and I will definitely be experimenting with them again and soon!

It's like a choo-choo train of starchy goodness!

This used to be The Point knitting cafe where Jane and I would hang, drink coffee, knit and chat with some great knitters. *sigh*
