  1. that looks great. any idea why it’s called mother in law pasta? before googling the term, I was thinking that your mother in law had made the pasta, and I was amazingly impressed with her skill at mixing colors within her homemade pasta! 🙂

    • You’re not far off- they’re called mother-in-law’s tongues (Lingua di Suocera) because they are long, colorful and sharp around the edges. 😉

      Thanks, Jen!

  2. Hey people, it’s Labor Day! I’m enjoying my extra day off, and I am planning to doing something fun that will probably involve a moto trip and seeing something new in Huntington I haven’t seen yet.
