i spent too long looking at this picture and now they look like fortune cookies:


We made tortellini last weekend in celebration of Aaron being done with his pediatrics rotation and shelf exam and me being done with summer term TAing. It was surprisingly easy to shape, like easier than ravioli even with our ravioli press. And none burst when we cooked them! We filled them with homemade ricotta and homegrown basil and topped them off with homemade spaghetti sauce. I'm just now realizing that Aaron literally did everything except shape the pasta, so good job Aaron! You spent your weekend off cooking for me! 

I don't know what's wrong with me, but I sort of feel like I've had writer's block for over a year now. I just don't have anything to say lately! So in lieu of a lovely closing paragraph here's a slothstronaut:


You're welcome.

Love love love the tortellini! We need to come visit PA again so you can impart your pasta making knowledge on me! I can relate to the writers block...actually finishing a post that has substance and isn't a total bore has been a struggle lately. I think the slothstonaut is a perfect finishing paragraph. :)
