Low Tech Technology!

September 7th, 2010 · No Comments · News

Technology does not always have a plug on the end of it.  Most of the time technology involves problem solving and critical thinking skills.  How can I make this work?  Why doesn’t it work?  Think of the obvious (is it plugged in?) or the not so obvious (is it plugged into the correct jack/outlet?).  To celebrate the end of summer, my husband and I decided to try our hands at homemade pasta.  The recipe (Strangozzi with Tomato Bacon Sauce) came from Lidia’s Italy.  It was a scary thought. . .  My friend and colleague Anne Rowlands let me borrow her pasta machine (yes, it is technology).  We made the dough and had to spend time adjusting it (was it too dry?  too wet?) and finally it was time to put the dough through the machine.  Talk about feelings of inadequacy.  But, about two hours later, there it was. . .  Perfect pasta.  Looked like one of the food scenes from Eat, Pray, Love!  Of course, a video for YouTube had to be made.  What would we do without technology!
