Sorry for the slowdown in posts this week, peeps; the BF's sister is in town and we have been much too busy having a fabulous time (and working, boo) so the blog has been neglected. Last night, however, was her birthday, so I whipped up some tasties to celebrate!
First up on the menu, Giada's ravioli with balsamic brown butter. As an avid reader of Vogue, I first became intrigued by brown butter's offerings when Jeffrey Steingarten (my personal hero - seriously. The man was a lawyer, decided he didn't want to be one, and went to write about food . . . for Vogue . . . can you say "THIS MAN IS LEADING THE LIFE I WANT?!" ANYONE!!!) wrote about it in Vogue, some time ago. When Giada presented this fabulous looking recipe on her "dating tips for the bachelor" episode, I had to try it.
I am nothing if not a bachelor.
I used some very tasty Buitoni pre-made ravioli, filled with a combination of ground beef and spicy italian sausage, as well as parmesan in a shaker. Very bachelor-like, see?!
The dish went over well, and we even had leftovers! But not for Arnie.
Poor thing. Additionally, these shoes are awesome:

And I wore boring shoes today, so I have to fantasize about what $600 could get me. *sigh*
