One of my favorite things about summer is all the fresh berries – I tend to eat so many more fruits in the summer time 😀
While I love doing the bike machine for exercise, I still think I need to do other things to shake things up. Right next to the gym is an outdoor pool that is part of my gym membership. I hadn’t really checked it out yet because it is so full of kids, but when I went at around 12:30, there was only 1 person in the 3 lanes designated for lap swim. Good thing is that you have to be 16 to use the lap lanes!
Lunch was leftover taco fiesta. I “Pam” fried the corn tortillas to make them crispy. Each one only has 1 ounce of taco meat, cucumbers and peppers and lots of Tabasco!
Artichoke Ravioli (printer friendly version here)
Makes 4 servings (6 ravioli: 388 calories, 8.2 fat, 60.6 carbs, 12.3 fiber and 21.7 protein)
|1 1/2||cups flour|
|1||cup ricotta cheese|
|1/3||cup fresh basil|
|1/2||teaspoon lemon juice|
- For the pasta:
- Mix flour, eggs, salt and water in food processor until it comes together.
- Mix remaining ingredients for filling. Boil ravioli for 6 minutes. Serve with sauce of choice.
This was so good! The ravioli was so light. However, Tony made a good point – the marinara sauce kind of overpowered the delicate ravioli – next time I’d just toss the ravioli in a little bit of Parmesan butter – but it was delicious!
I am off to put ribs in the oven. While we normally have Crab Fest with our neighbors, this time we decided to have Meat Fest 2010! Come back tomorrow to see what else we had!
Happy Saturday – its gorgeous in Chicago!
