So I think we should monetarily support this movie. Once the rest of you have seen it, let's chat about it. I won't ruin it for you by talking more here.
I put my diva in the closet for the winter, not living up to my Party Diva title, so I've felt very insecure in interviews when they call me a party diva. So I've been diva-ing it back up this week with cooking.
Mike and I rolled out Spinach Ravioli with our leftover pasta dough. First time we've made ravioli, and it was pretty good, though we should have rolled the dough out thinner. We filled it with a mix of feta, parmesan, mozarella, cilantro pesto, and shredded chicken. Then we topped it with olive oil and red pepper flakes. Mmmm...
Then for a snack I made Vanilla Sorbet, and I swear this only took 10 minutes. I don't know if it's ice cream or sorbet or what, because I didn't put any eggs in. But it was fresh and summery and lower calorie than ice cream.
1 cup 1% milk
1 fresh vanilla bean
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon honey (don't know why, just felt like throwing honey in)
sugar, to taste
I whipped together the milk, ice cream, vanilla extract, and honey, and scraped in the innards of one vanilla bean. Then I dumped in sugar till it was sweet enough. Then churned through the ice cream machine. Very rich and vanilla-y. Yum.
