Life’s Fleeting Moments

Stories & Pictures | September 8, 2012 | By

I like to sculpture my little girl’s curly hair into different shapes when we shower. It makes shower time fun for me. It is especially fun because she is totally unaware of what I am doing. Unglamorous happy and swift passing moments. 


And speaking of unglamorous things, I found the recipe for this Cannelloni dish at the back of a Barilla packet. Simple and oh so good. When your kitchen is empty and you have a few items in your pantry like Pasta, flour, milk, frozen spinach and Parmesan, this is ideal for a family or a hungry couple. 


I always hear and read about how therapeutic people find cooking. To be honest I never found that to be a relevant experience to me until I pipped the cheese filling into those pasta tubes. It was repetitive and satisfying. I’ve just recently started using those pipping bags and while doing it I feel like a professional chef who has always pipped icing and fillings! Bon Appetite.

    You’ve reminded me of doing this to my little daughters’ hair. Had quite forgotten (they’re teens now).

    what a delightful post in every way. honestly, I just smoosh the filling in with a long handled spoon or one chopstick! it’s important not to overfill the shells becuase the filling expands…
