I've been trying out heaps of new recipes, because, well, I have time. And then, last night I decided to try to make some spinach ravioli from scratch. Now, mind you, I've tried to make ravioli before. Let's just say, it didn't end well. And everyone involved was a bit traumatised from the experience. But, while I was in Georgia, I got a fancy ravioli stamper thingy-ma-bob (thanks mom!) that looked like it could be the solution to all my problems, well, the ravioli-related ones at least. And I must say, it worked like a charm!
|Yummy spinach+béchamel sauce filling!|
|All wrapped up in a nicely cut-out pasta!|
|Served with a cherry tomato sauce, that was just a little bit spicy, and some more béchamel sauce.|
They were--if I may say so myself--delicieux! I think Vincent liked them too, because he ate them all in about five minutes. I had to stop him when he wanted to move on the linguini I had made from the leftover pasta dough. Yay ravioli!
Now, it's back to it. I have many not-so-fun immigration-related tasks that need my attention, along with a few linguistic-y papers (which are way more fun than the immigration stuff).
I also still have a few weeks before I know whether or not I'll be moving to Norway. Fingers crossed people; I need all the good mojo I can get!
