Dinner For One Please~
And No Takeout Thank You Very Much~:)
I am never alone for dinner~
Wednesday night I was ..
In the morning..before work..I thought..I'll just have a bagel for dinner:) Or cereal~
But I cracked.. I was listless after a long day at work..and wanted to play..
The game I wanted to play..was cooking and baking of course~Too wet and too late for the garden..Too humid also!
So I spoiled myself by making a trial version of a meal I instantly had palpitations for when I saw it at Isa's..
Peanut Butter Ravioli Wontons~
It was a heavenly little dish..That I will do and do again.
I remember my childhood friend and I having this at a resto ..maybe 15 yrs ago..I loved it then..
You know what?
It's even better at home~
I used dumpling wrappers..that I had..but the recipe calls for WonTon wrappers..it worked..I tried some as Raviolis..some as wontons..Of course both taste luscious.
She mentions her little son ate all the sauce even:) He has my kind of taste buds~
He is a lucky little grenouille to have such a good cook mommy.
