swing of things

it's been on my mind quite a bit lately that i haven't posted on the blog in awhile. i got out of my routine a few months back, and haven't quite been able to get back there again. it may be awhile before i revisit being a blog "writer." for now, here's a picture of the raviolis (1st attempt) i made after christmas. they turned out not so great, not terrible to eat but really not very pretty. i've made another batch since then, and am going to make some more tonight. the pasta stuff is tricky! i have realized now that it makes so much sense that mostly old italian grandmothers are the true pasta makers. they've had a whole lifetime to become masters at it!
