Between the constant drizzle and the fire continuing to burn on Table Rock Mountain/Linville Gorge in the Pisgah National Forest Grandfather District ( which is where we live in the Pisgah National forest., read more about this devastating fire here http://www.hcpress.com/news/table-rock-fire-in-linville-gorge-wilderness-area-spreads-to-100-acres-zero-percent-contained-expected-to-grow.html )
It has been an very very dreary smokey foggy Grey Day....
I didn't want to start the Generator first thing and with no sun, the batteries were low... so we enjoyed the quiet, kept the cookstove fired up and played outside, Read books, Made Homemade Raviolis ( RECIPE BELOW) and worked up some more items for my Etsy Shop..
Homemade Ravioli Recipe:
2 cups Flour
2 Tbsp Oil
1 Tsp salt
Make a well in the middle of the flour mix and add eggs and oil, fold in and knead until elastic. Let rest for 5 minutes While making the Filling.
Basic Ricotta Filling
1 15 oz jar Ricotta
salt to taste
1 Tbsp Parley
Roll out dough to about 1/8" or thinner...use a cookie cutter ( I used a circle one and shaped it square,,hehe) or cut out squares.. Place a spoonful of filling on one square. Place another square on top. Use and egg wash to seal corners..
TO FREEZE for a later date.
Place on cookie sheet to freeze, then remove, place in freezer back and suck any air out with straw,to prevent freezer burn.
Hoping for some sunshine Tommorow!
