/> Raising Angels: Ravioli and a Wall

Ravioli and a Wall

Yesterday was a day of accomplishments.

I spent the afternoon making ravioli with my mom and Mackenzie. We donated a meal for 12 in a silent auction to raise money for Mackenzie's school two years ago and the winners are just now cashing in. Good thing we love that school. Mackenzie makes the fourth generation of ravioli making women in our family (at least of the Italians I've met).

And, Hooray! The masons began building our basement wall. It's only been three weeks since we poured the cement floor and we're blazing on to the next step. Yeah right!

There might be one small thing that we will miss as the house progresses. Mount Parris, as our pile of dirt has been dubbed by the neighborhood kids, will no longer be there to climb. In light of that, I try to let the kids make the climb at every opportunity. Hopefully, they are making memories of this process so that they will appreciate the finished product. This, unfortunately, is not a stretch seeing as how it may not be finished until they're in high school!

From the looks of it, your ravioli making is not too different from my pierogi making!

I've heard a lot about pierogis but I've never tried them. What are they and how do you make them?
