I had a few meat loving people over for dinner on NYE and had to think of a meal that they would love too.

We made some quick pasta (Egg free: semolina flour + ap flour + water ) in my Phillips pasta maker. Marinara from Crossroads Cookbook, roasted carrots and parsnips with a maple sherry glaze (mostly from Crossroads Cookbook) and roasted Brussels sprouts with balsamic reduction.

Not pictured: Started with a small side salad. I've been doing hydroponic gardening and had enough homegrown lettuce to mix in with some spinach, spiraled cucumbers, croutons and a pretty simple elderberry vinaigrette.

And for a bonus picture, my lunch the past few days has been this homemade seitan sliced thin, just mayo, greens, and spicy heidi ho chia cheeze:

It's so good. I put off buying the pasta maker because it is expensive and I wasn't sure I would use it. I saw it on Woot.com for almost half off and don't regret grabbing it. Everyone loves the pasta, and it really is simple to use and gets a B+ on ease of cleaning.

The pasta looks amazing. Also, I'm impressed how thin your homemade seitan is sliced.

Thanks, as for slicing seitan, I've been using my new knife I got for xmas. It is AMAZING! So amazing that it cut right through the cloth I was drying it with and sliced my finger open.

My parents also got me these two for xmas:
bread knife:
