Am I over weight? no, I maintain my ideal weight. The trick in my diet is to commit to quality over quantity. Quality can not be restricted to the ingredients, but it has to include the levels of satisfaction you get out of your meal. Beware though, you could fall into the trap of not knowing when to stop - this is not a diet for the weak!
I have been advised by loved ones that I have an unhealthy relationship with Pasta, but I obviously don't agree with them on the "unhealthy" bit. During a trip to Puglia, Italy in November 2009, I officially started a love affair with Pasta - "the Italian way of happiness" - or so I was told by an Italian restaurateur, I never questions that statement once.
So having treated myself to some freshly made Bavette from little Italian food shop I came across yesterday, I couldn't help but notice and obsess over their pasta machines. With only two months and five days left until my Birthday I already know what's officially No. 1 on my wish list :)
I just need Dolly the Pasta Maker in my life.
I think it would only be appropriate to leave you Dean Martin's tune to go with the Pasta lovin' mood I'm in.
