After getting situated on our first day (grocery shopping, checking out our surrounding area and relaxing for a bit.) We realized it was time for bed...Having only slept 15 hours in 3 days it was definitely necessary.
I wake up the next morning and all I could think is..
What should I make?....Again I began to think about our pantry and what was in stock.
Oatmeal with Honey Caramelized Peaches, and Bananas
I just throw these ingredients together and gently stir occasionally until the Oats are cooked.
Honey Caramelized Peaches:
1 Peach peeled and cut into segments
1ts of honey
This is really simple..turn your flame on to a bit above medium, add your Honey, heat until it begins to smell caramelized and the bubbles have begun to slow down. Add your peaches and cook until the peaches have begun to breakdown.
1/2 banana cut into thin rounds
All together this took maybe about 10 minutes. It was a great start to the day.

The best way I find to get this started is to manually roll out the dough to about a quarter inch keeping the width of the pasta machine in mind. Once achieved, lightly flour the pasta dough on both sides and pass the pasta through the largest setting (1 usually), and fold the ends in (again keeping in mind the width of the machine).
Roll the pasta dough with a rolling pin to a quarter inch again and pass through the machine.
From this point you would pass the pasta twice at each setting beginning with one.
(If you choose to cut the pasta, lightly flour on both sides and cover with a towl. This prevents your pasta from sticking to each other and drying out)
