The holidays stir up a world of beautiful memories. Today we pay tribute to those memories as we create new ones with these homemade sweet Italian Ravioli.
‘Special’ is word attached so often to such a wide variety of subjects that it has lost almost any trace of an actual meaning. In most cases it finds itself synonymous with ‘unique,’ others times it finds itself romanticized, used to describe something such as a ‘pleasantly memorable evening,’ or something ‘of value’ in a larger group such as ‘diamond in the ruff.’ To say the word is an umbrella phrase would be a vast understatement.
然而,这个模糊的定义几乎没有停止我们from deciding that certain occasions, almost by the mere fact of their existence, need to be special, that they need to be remembered fondly almost as a matter of ritual. After all, there’s a reason why a drab weeknight dinner is both forgivable and ultimately forgettable, while a drab Christmas affair on the other hand, well, that’s another matter entirely.
Strangely enough, far from radical deviance, a form of ‘ritual routine’ is one of the most common ways to make an event memorable – tradition. Whether it’s ‘chestnuts roasting on an open fire,’ hanging oversized socks from banisters and then filling with them with handfuls of palm size gifts, or dragging trees into the living room to be strung with electric lights, these seasonal ‘routines’ are meant to make the moments special, and embed them pleasantly in our memories.
虽然我的家人肯定已经知道离开的圣诞树高达早已过他们的欢迎，并烧断保险丝由于过灯的，我们最喜欢的节日传统，如人们所预料的，通常需要更多的美食路线。亚博竞技二打一官网例如，在过去的几年里，我们已经作出了圣诞节和新闻年自制馄饨的批次。I don’t quite remember how we got started on that, but it is now a tradition, and now it is part of what makes the days special for us, since it gets us all in the kitchen at once, which is always fun, and always memorable, and the meal afterwards never disappoints.
它是，当在我的本地沃尔玛购物的成分，我们的馄饨，我碰巧跨越霍尔马克装饰品及贺卡display. Now, with Star Wars fever once again in full throttle, and with my son an avowed fanatic, I simply had to pick up the Darth Vader Ornament. And when I say fanatic, he’s the sort that knows the ‘TIE’ in TIE-Fighter stands for Twin-Ion-Engine, and that the Millennium Falcon was really just a glorified YT-1300 Light Freighter…whatever that means. I should note that I asked for a pair of quick Star Wars facts while writing this, and he gave me those off the top of his head.
I selected Frozen’s Olaf for my daughter, along with a pair of霍尔马克贺卡。我也决定了，然后和那里，晚上很特别。我不知道为什么，但我知道它只是需要是。也许这是我挥之不去的过圣诞饰品，也许我的潜意识里打蜡怀旧。不管了，我于是决定和那里，我们不会等着做馄饨。
Why wait? I figured.
To start things off, you’re going to sift two cups of flour into a pile on your countertop, and make a well in the center of it, as shown below. In the well, place the egg yolks and olive oil, and then add three tablespoons of water and begin working the flour until you have a stiff dough. Feel free to add a little more warm water as you go if needed. You know you’re done when you have a smooth, elastic dough. Once that’s done, cover it and let it rest for about fifteen minutes.
For the filling, I like to add in a few rustic, seasonal flavors, especially cinnamon, nutmeg, and orange zest, in addition to what I have outlined below for mixing the filling.
What are some of the ways to make the holiday season special? What are some of your family’s traditions? We would love to hear from you.
Enjoy with Love,
