Maccaroni from Thomas Jefferson

I thought this was awesome. On the Library of Congress website they have a document by Thomas Jefferson on how to make Maccaroni.

Thomas Jefferson's drawing of a macaroni machine and instructions for making pasta, ca. 1787.

About Me

My photo
Catholic and politically conservative, I graduated with a BA in History (concentration in American) and Political Science. I'm between two parishes; one in Wisconsin that is fairly traditional, and one in Illinois that is fairly liberal. I teach CCD. I work in the food service industry, which basically means I'm working in fast food until I find a better job. I'd like to work for the church somehow. Right now I'm working on getting my teaching certification, although I'm unsure thats the correct path for me. This blog is as random as I am. I hope you enjoy.
