Well done Chops on making your own ravioli, bet it tastes wonderful

some really great looking and sounding dinners tonight.

i spent the day looking for jerseys for my boy for his birthday next week. do you know how hard it is to find a seattle seahawks jersey in new jersey?

and i had to go to newark to get him the devils jersey (a new new jersey jersey ) that's customized with his choice of numbers and our last name on the back.

when i finally got home, we just ordered takeout from a local italian joint that changed management recently. my boy had chicken parm and spaghetti, dw had a chicken caesar salad, and i had calamari fra diavolo and penne. each dinner was outstanding, especially my calamari, and each came with delicious homemade mini loafs of crusty italian bread.

I set a place for you, BT, but I guess all the running around to find the jersey kept you too busy to drop by.

No, it was a "standard" portion. And, I only ate 1/2 of a slice of the bread. Maybe I had too much broccoli. But, I think because the pasta was whole wheat (with spinach and pesto mixed into the dough) and the lasagne was loaded with veggies--grated carrot, tomato chunks, eggplant, zucchini, portabello mushroom slices, ricotta, moz., parm.) it was just very, very filling. Or maybe because I don't eat like that in the evening very often. One of my guests doesn't eat "white" so I had to do 100% wholewheat for the bread and the noodles. It was fun coming up with 100% vegetarian dishes (especially since 2 normally don't eat vegetarian). No one missed the meat in the lasagne.

Last night it was bean soup. Portuguese bean soup. I really was making it for the freezer, but husband had to have it for dinner once he tasted it. It is a good thing to have a spouse who so loves your cooking!

I have to agree with TL, where are the curds? But, I have made it with different kinds of cheese and it works. The gravy looks as if it were chicken gravy. In Quebec, I believe the gravy is 1/2 gravy, 1/2 beef. I love poutine with turkey gravy. Now you know why it is so addictive! It sounds awful, but it grows on you. Too bad your visit to NS doesn't allow time for a trip to Quebec. There you could savor a wide-variety of different toppings to make up poutine!

This wasn't my plate. Mine only had 1 slice of bread, more broccoli, and salad, a smaller portion of lasagne. That person ate 2 portions of lasagne, and more salad, and 2 more slices of bread. And then complained he was full.

those are called disco fries here in the diners of joisey. apparently, they became popular during the great disco scare of the late '70's.

Would you please post your recipe for the Portuguese bean soup?
