The recipe I helped J. make for his project was literally "nude ravioli". We are experimenting with recipes from a regional Italian cookbook and this was one of them. Basically, it is the insides of a typical ravioli shaped into a ball and cooked on wax paper or parchment without being stuffed inside the pasta. They were good, but rich.

Finishing the Lord of the Rings trilogy was bittersweet. I've never taken this long to read a book(s). Usually, if I am really interested in a book, I'll finish it in a day or two, but everytime I picked up these books, I would fall asleep after 1-2 pages usually. Anyway, I truly enjoyed following Frodo and Sam on their journey. I had seen the movies a few times before but this is the first time I had read the books. I am glad I saw the movies first because I tend to be one of those people who get caught up in semantics and would be disappointed in differences between the books and movies. I wish I had kept track of some of the thoughts presented in the books better by writing or bookmarking them,
but I didn't. Great insights into war and life.
