Adventures in Food
My friend Mary introduced me to homemade mustard sometime last summer. Holy cow. It was a life-changing experience. She gave me the recipe, and I finally put it together at the end of September. It had to sit in the fridge for a month, and it’s finally done!
Here’s the beginning, when I first put it together:
The actual day for blending was a few days ago, but today was the day. Here’s what the mustard looked like when I took it out of the fridge today.
It seemed a little too watery when I took it out out of the fridge.
…but I figured I’d trust the recipe, and *glug* into the blender, and vrrrooooom!
Here’s the finished product – delicious, and worth the wait!
On reflection, I think I blended it more than I wanted to. Something to remember next time.

Hi, fans and friends! Yesterday, I went to my friend Mary’s house, and we cooked. There was also wine involved. To give credit where it’s due, Mary did a lot more of the cooking than I did. However, I had a great time, and I DID do some of it. Mary made the pasta dough, and I made the filling (fresh, local chevre, herbs, and other goodies). Some of the pictures are pretty crappy (again, there was wine involved).
We tested out my ravioli cutter that I got for my wedding (this was its first use).
The cutter worked well, and we ended up with a nice-sized pile of fancy, homemade ravioli.
We made fettuccine out of the leftover pasta dough, and hung it to dry on Mary’s handy pasta dryer.
The ravioli went into boiling water. They cooked in a surprisingly short time, then into the strainer they went to drain.
Last, we made the sauce. Sauteed mushrooms, tomatoes, garlic, and other yumminess.
I can’t begin to describe how delicious the finished product was, but I could see it being on the menu of a foo-foo restaurant somewhere for $25/plate. Completely amazing!
