I was comforted by the fact that many of us are pushed into and out of weather moods. I am determined to find a way around this. Join me as I figure out a way to embrace this coming Winter weather. Perhaps I’ll call this my Weather Buster moment here at Compassionknit.
No need for a weather buster today: it is gorgeous out. 70s and sunny and a touch of humidity. I’ll be on the porch appreciating the goodness. We slept with windows open wide last night. Perfection.
I found Cat Borshi’s Socks Soar book yesterday on my shelf. I’m knitting socks and she says , “Are you really going to walk all over your knitting by wearing it?” I love this. And yes I am.
Finally , I’ll share with you the dinner I made for friends this weekend.
*purchase ravioli of your choice. I choose Fresh Sausage Ravioli
*2 packages of basil
*One jar of roasted red peppers
*Pinenuts ( I know they are crazy expensive but the make this meal I think)
*One jar of sun dried tomatoes
*Romano or parmesan cheese
I ribbon cut the basil and set aside.
I slice the roasted red peppers and set aside.
I warm a few sun dried tomatoes in the wok as set aside.
I brown a teaspoon of chopped garlic in the wok with a tablespoon of oil from the sundried tomato jar. Then I slowly brown the pine nuts and set aside.
I cook the ravioli in the boiling water as suggested for 4 minutes. Then I transfer it to the wok . Again, I will add a teaspoon or so of the oil from the sun dried tomato jar, into the wok and I brown the ravioli. I add the roasted red peppers carefully to the ravioli and try not to break the pasta.
I plate the ravioli and sprinkle it with basil, pine nuts and cheese. I serve the sun dried tomatoes on the side.
I love the fresh basil taste. Let me know if you try this Ravioli dinner and like it. 🙂
