Grated Parmigiano-Reggiano

We’re holing up.

Waiting for the predicted snow.

Not quite a burrow but definitely staying close to home.

It’s probably going to impact Thanksgiving travel plans for many in this neck of the woods.

I’m avoiding all stores with crowds- as everyone rushes to get milk and the last roll of T.P.

There’s urgent hype on the car radio as I drove home from school and I hear from a friend that reports on TV are insistent.

So I went to the Bryant Street Market to get a pound of coffee beans and spied Donatelli’s Mushroom Ravioli in the freezer.

Came home and baked the dozen in some vodka sauce from the pantry (don’t ask)  for 45 minutes and pretty soon there was a meal worthy of a winter night that feels like February instead of November.

In the dining room.  What made the meal though?

The grater was in service again tonight. This time  for the Parmigiano- Reggiano cheese.  Steve added the beer and we had spinach salad.   The candles made it seem warmer.

  1. Looks delicious, vodka sauce freshly made is my standby.. Hope snow is nit too bad, we drove to
    Monaco yesterday and how dramatic it was to see the snow on the Alps in the distance

  2. That looks so good! We are among those traveling, but if its bad we’re staying put!

  3. This winter is seeming to start off a lot more harsh than in years past. Your meal looks DELICIOUS – and I agree that candles add lovely ambiance to every setting. Way to take advantage of a pending storm. 🙂

  4. Ruth, you always were a great cook and I see that hasn’t changed. There are 8 of us singles getting together for turkey on Thanksgiving and we’re all looking forward to a good time and good food. I hope you and Steve enjoy hunkering down for a cold winter’s night and wonderful WARM food and drink! Stay safe!

  5. We think alike, Ruth. Nothing like a dish of pasta on a wintry night and, if that pasta is ravioli, perfect. That’s why I always have some in my freezer. The weather made me do it. 🙂

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
