My apologies for the radio silence, friends.
Summer begs to be celebrated out of doors and, well, I just couldn't help myself.
Here are a few raw photos to satisfy you until Monday.
This week won't be quite so quiet around The Board and Wire.
|Straining excess whey from my homemade whole (cow) milk Ricotta|
|Mixing it with in-season strawberries, a good heaping spoon full of moist brown sugar, & a squirt of lime juice.|
|Wanton wrappers are my easy ravioli cheat. Someday I'll be ambitious enough to make my own pasta dough...|
|I feel like shapes influence texture. These "flying geese" shapes were my favorite.|
|They turned out rather well (to my surprise as i made this up on the fly. it's what happens when i have an excess of any food & no desire to plan ahead.). They were lightly sweet and the lime brought out the headiness of the strawberries. The ricotta gave it further richness & a hint of unsweetened cheesecakey-ness. In short this was an unexpected success. I can't wait to try it again with raspberries & perhaps a little olive oil.|
