No meat

Spinach ricotta ravioli w/marinara & garlic bread

It’s Friday (♫♪♬ Friday, Friday, gettin’ down on Friday…♫♪♬) during Lent which means no meat today. Thankfully we had ingredients to make a meatless meal. I prepared spinach ricotta ravioli with a spiced up marinara & garlic bread. The meal was actually pretty good and I really didn’t miss the meat. Ya know, I guess I should try meatless meals more often. I’m just so used to eating meat since I was brought up eating it and it’s so prevalent in American cuisine…oh yeah, it’s so darned tasty too! I think I’ll try to explore the meatless option a little bit more both eating out and cooking at home. Let’s see how this goes.

The ravioli dish I prepared today reminded me a little of when my mom made spaghetti for the family growing up. I recall taking forkfuls of it and placing it on top of garlic bread, then taking a bite. I’m not sure why it was so good that way, it just was. So tried that today with ravioli…..still delicious! It gave me an idea for an appetizer which I may try some time.

What have you eaten or are you eating today?

For you

Happy Friday foodies! It’s overcast and cold here in L.A. Rain is predicted for today and tomorrow. I LOVE it! Well I’ve been thinking a lot about what sort of content I wanted to add to this blog in the coming weeks so I thought I’d ask you guys, my hungry readers. What would you like to see me blog about? It should obviously be food-related. Besides the usual food pics, what specific topics do want to read? More about eating as a kid growing up in a household where both of my parents cooked? The food I’ve eaten during my various foreign excursions? Bad food experiences? What else? It’s up to you. Let me hear it!
