Yo yo yo yo!
Hope you’re all having a fab morning so far!
I have been up to nothing productive lately, like literally, nothing I can think of.
If I had to make a list of the top 5 productive activities I have completed in the past week, it would look something like this:
2. Pinned all the things.
3. Made a list of Oscar nominated movies that I have yet to see, so that I can make a point of trying to watch them all.
4. Realized that I have only seen Django Unchained and Life of Pi, so I better get on it.
5. Figured out a way to have at least two breakfasts per day, maybe three if I really put my mind to it.
So yeah, that pretty much speaks for itself.
Going back to whole pinterest thing, I mentioned to you before that Mr. Delish and I are currently living with my parents as we are saving up to buy our own house. We haven’t put a time frame on when we plan to buy, we are just trying to save as much as possible and then once we have enough we will start looking at places.
We also decided that instead of having to put down a bunch of money at once to buy new stuff for our first home, we will slowly buy things as we go and then just keep them aside for when we move. Hopefully that will make things a little easier on the wallet when it comes to buying.
This all being said, I figured it was a grand idea to make a pin board for ideas of what we need/want and then I can kind of check it off as I go. We do have a lot of stuff already as we have lived on our own before, but a lot of it is older hand me down kind of things and we would like to have some nice stuff that we can be proud of when we finally own our first home.
Yesterday I bought this really pretty coffee maker!

Okay so on to the goods.
This is a recipe/idea from Mr. Delish’s brother in law, Graham. He is a chef in Kelowna, BC and he served us this dish one of the first times he ever cooked for us, and we were both totally floored. It’s just amazing, that is really all there is to say.
It is really different than most other pasta recipes for two reasons:
1. The pasta is actually fried so it is crisp. WEE
2. It has a vinaigrette dressing instead of a sauce. YUM
It’s just different and awesome so try it, okay?
Miss Delish asks:
Have you watched any of the Oscar nominated movies this year? If so which ones and how did you like them?
Are you a pinterest addict like me?
Delicious butternut squash ravioli, fried to crispy perfection and topped with a savory dijon truffle vinaigrette.
- 24 homemade or store bought butternut squash ravioli (my homemade recipe is here)
- Vegetable oil
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1 tbsp truffle olive oil
- 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
- 1 tbsp dijon mustard
- 1 tsp honey
- salt and pepper to taste
Cook the ravioli in a pot of salted boiling water until they float to the top. Remove and set them in a single layer on a baking sheet or plate lined with paper towels. Allow them to air dry completely.
While they are drying whisk together (or shake in a mason jar) the olive oil, truffle olive oil, white wine vInegar, dijon mustard and honey. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
In a large flat bottomed pan, add enough vegetable oil to come up the side about 1/4 of an inch. Heat that over medium high heat until it is glossy. Add about 5-6 ravioli to the pan and allow them to fry for about 1-2 minutes on each side until crisp and golden brown. Transfer to another plate lined with paper towels. Repeat with the remaining ravioli, frying in small batches.
To serve, drizzle the vinaigrette over the crispy ravioli, enjoy!
Use store bought ravioli if you're in a hurry!
