One of my students that graduated a few years ago just recently returned from a mission in Argentina. We just love Tycen, he is such a great person and my boys really look up to him as an example. So last Sunday he came over and showed us how to make Nioquis, a little potato pasta, that they eat in Argentina every month on the 29th. He told us we would need "a lot" of potatoes so Bret peeled an entire 10 pound bag. We had so much pasta, it was really fun!
Tycen had no problem adjusting to non-missionary life, as displayed in this photo. How did he get so lucky to get so much help from two beautiful girls? Actually the one on the right is Michelle and they were really good friends in high school, she is married but her husband didn't get there until later. The girl on the left is Jessica and this is the one he is dating now.
You boil potatoes add, seasoning, cilantro, garlic butter and mash them. Then you dump it on the counter and everyone helps knead flour in until it becomes a dough. Tycen said the only way to do it is with the whole family. So everyone was kneading at the same time, it was really fun. We used sooo much flour and I didn't know if my kitchen would ever be the same, there was flour everywhere!
Once you get enough flour in the potatoes you roll out the dough and cut into little squares.
Tycen is showing us how to flip them off a fork. Um, I think you are born with this talent some us didn't get it. Aaron was good. It was very time consuming.
Dawson and Jessica. yeah I know, we do own clothes for him.
Stacy and Brett stopped by for some fun and food.
Then you boil them in water and when they float to the top, they are done. We topped them with shredded pork and red sauce. Oh, yeah we also covered them in cheese. They were SO GOOD!
This picture give you a glimps of how my kitchen looked.It took us two hours to make the dish, but it was so worth it! Thanks so much Tycen, we love having you back!
