  1. Was it one of the names you already used or ? I really like the name Genoa!

    1448. Chocolate pasta with raspberry sauce and whipped cream for dessert.
    Did you make it yourself or ? I want to try that!

    I love apple picking and processing. We’re in the process of building an apple press right now and I can’t wait to use it. πŸ™‚ My brother finished the scratter for chopping up the apples.

    1. It was a name that we were considering instead of Genoa (which I really like too!) and they were considering for the baby they’re pregnant with now, except that they found out it was a boy. πŸ™‚

      No, I didn’t make the chocolate pasta…my mother-in-law found it for me at a specialty pasta place in Kansas City. It honestly wasn’t that chocolate-y, but when we sprinkled baking cocoa powder on the whipped cream and raspberry sauce that helped a lot! πŸ™‚
