I am too lazy to make my own dough, so I buy frozen Rhodes pizza dough. And there is a result below.
Since it was still pretty early I thought I better use up dough leftovers from making pierogies on Sunday, so I decided to make ravioli or as we call them in Russian pelímeni. Using my neat Pelímeni maker I made, oh about 170 or so. The picks. Below. The rest of the meat filling I was going to make meat sauce for spaghetti, but my daughter talk me into making meatballs which I completely messed up. I forgot to add eggs and bread crumbs. My wife will have to make some sauce and noodles and they will have somewhat addible dinner.

I was thinking the same thing. You can knock out a bunch of raviolis in no time with that.

I got lucky. It wasn't a problem with the filling at all. Part of the enamel broke off the tooth by the new filling and he only had to polish it a bit. So I can have anything I want tonight. Back to deciding what's for dinner again. I've been on a rampage of late to eat what is in the freezers, so I better start rummaging soon.

Thats good news. Mouth pain makes your head feel like it's going to explode!

I was thinking the same thing. I found one online here:

RAVIOLI PELMENI MAKER MEAT DUMPLIN BRAND NEW!

I love Pel'meni. There used to be a restaurant not far from me that served them baked with sour cream. I've also seen recipes for Mushroom Pel'meni, which sounds delicious to me.

Maybe we can talk CharlieD into posting a recipe...

Not really a recipe.. deglaze with white wine and put some lemon juice in it.

And your pictures are wonderful looking Charlie.

I thought it was nice. I was giving myself much ado about nothing

I think I'm going to make some loaded mac and cheese tonight. I've got some shredded jalapeno jack cheese I want to use up and also some broccoli. I'll thaw some kielbasa to throw in it, too.

So my plans are changing.

I think tonight it will be bacon and eggs with toast (I did make bread today).
