Rinaz wrote about making gnocchi (some sort of pasta). It looked easy and the ingredients r very basic.

Since i had no plans tt day, i decided to make it w Tufeil..

Boiled the potatoes w their skin on while Tufeil took a bath.. In the meantime i was making Jackie chicken too. Took the potatoes out, dressed Tufeil and then we peeled the not-so-hot-anymore potatoes. I gave him one to mash.

And he sampled the semi raw potatoes.

I added the egg, salt, pepper and flour n started to knead w my bare hands when Tufeil followed suit!

Except he put them into his mouth!

Chunks and chunks of them!!

I was very slow at making them into balls. .

Actually i wanted to shape them like worms so a bit exciting to eat.. Thankfully i gave up after 1/4 of the dough and just started boiling them bcos only then i realised the dough sticked back together and i had to reshape them all over again!!

In the meantime, the boy entertained himself....

Playing drum.. I just had to snap this for him to rmbr how he was able to squeeze into such a tiny corner!

You are supposed to eat the gnocchi w italian gravy like pesto or tomato base... When they were ready, I had a taste. Hmmm I dont see how Tufeil cld like this. So, sad to say, I binned them.

At least i ticked off one item off my List of Things to Cook...
