My Saturday plans to make fresh ravioli for dinner ended up with the opening of the culinary domestic sweatshop.
Paddy came on board to cook the filling earlier on during the day. Afternoon came around and with the filling now cool, it was time to begin preparing the ravioli. Obviously, with 13 of us at home we need quite a large quantity to feed everyone and I was expecting the job to take a good hour or so to do. By the time I had finished pulling out the ingredients and our Marcato Atlas pasta machine, several helpers had emerged and I immediately knew that the job would now take considerably longer than it would have.
Luckily, I had anticipated the enrolment of an army of helpers and allowed plenty of time.

They certainly were!
haha sounds like our house
I posted only yesterday about how much longer it can take to get jobs done when the kids ‘help’! But it is so much more fun when they do! My tot was getting stuck into crochet this weekend and kept tangling all the yarn, but she was so happy. Looks like you all had a lovely afternoon and a lovely meal too! x
They tasted delicious and the children did have a lot of fun. The cleaning up though – well that’s another story!
