TIME:  3:29 PM
PLACE:  M--- Community Center
SUBJECT:  Ravioli

Today was our family’s (the paternal grandmother’s side) big ravioli making fest.  Between the hours of 8am and 4:30pm we made, spread out, turned and boxed up approximately 4,000 ravioli.  It was a lot of work, but very fun.  The first batches that were rolled out took a little bit longer than expected - we hadn’t made these in some time, so there was a relearning curve involved.  By lunch time we had only four batches or so completed.  Or maybe that could be because the wine was uncorked at 10:30am – really, who can say?.  But after we ate, oh baby did we hit a groove.  We knocked out the rest in record time.  Now, I’m tired.  I’ll make some sauce and we’ll eat our endeavors tomorrow.

I think even *I* would have fun making ravioli if wine were involved!

How long does 4000 ravioli last??? Surely, more than one meal I hope :). If we were neighbors, I'd be at your door begging by now!!
