I’m not ready for Sunday to be over yet!!! I got so much done today and have had a good day, but the day is coming to an end! I need to find some other things to do to stretch this day even further.
I got everything done I needed to, at least:
- Last load of laundry is in the dryer right now
- Wheatberries + salad are made
- Hard boiled eggs are cooked
- House is clean!
- Scones are made :)
I will say – I “healthed” them up just a bit and they came out a little more like a biscuit than a scone, but they are tasty! Like blueberry biscuits. yum.
I think next time I make some, I’ll go with the regular recipe to see how different they come out. I like the biscuit-y texture, though. They’re very crumbly like a scone, but softer.
In other food news, Nick and I got to pick our first batch of peas from the garden!
We shucked them this afternoon so I had to come up with something for dinner to use our garden fresh peas.
Luckily, I had made an attempt a while ago to make my own ravioli. I froze them, so I decided tonight was the night we needed to try them.
Let’s just say that I am not the world’s greatest pasta maker :) The filling was pretty tasty, and I do remember that it was a ricotta/parm filling, but the dough was just too thick for ravioli. It was a tasty dinner, but I need more pasta practice!
I made a sauce by sauteeing the mushrooms with some garlic and olive oil and then added the peas and about a cup of chicken broth. I brought that to a boil, added about a tsp of cornstarch (dissolved in water) and let it thicken. I stirred in 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes and 1 tsp dried thyme, salt and pepper. Then I dropped the ravioli in the pan with the sauce (after cooking them in a different pot), stirred them around in the sauce and added 1 Tbsp heavy cream to finish the sauce.
Our peas were delicious! I’m glad this is just the first batch :)
I’ve got to pack my lunch and get my stuff ready for work tomorrow, put the sheets on the bed, and watch a little Food Network until my little sister and her husband get here.
Have you ever made your own pasta?
