I had an idea for a product that would make at-home pasta production simpler using an equally simple tool that most hunters in our area already have. We even have companies in the area that could produce such a product. PineandLakes.com Illustration

Sure, with the internet and social media, certain small town history gets recorded in other places, but not so thoroughly as one would find in an official publication. Years from now the bound copies of the PineandLakes Echo Journal will remain one of the most reliable historical records for Pine River and Pequot Lakes out there, maybe one of the only records. Such is the case for Pine River 75 years ago as well.

The first recipe I tried needed a bit of amending and ended up being a cross between my old standby and a "spicy" meatloaf. It originally called for sriracha hot chili sauce, which I did not have on hand. So I replaced it with hot sauce and it ended up having a nice spicy flavor without being overpowering or extremely hot.
