Another food update:
I tried to make gnocchi yesterday, using the recipe that Hot Yam used a few weeks ago. It was very labor-intensive, even with R. helping (thanks!). And in the end, I discovered that I need a different kind of flour and a finer potato-masher to make them properly.
Now I have a lot of misshapen gnocchi in the fridge and freezer.
