Garlic Ravioli

In my quest to pull together a quick dinner, I found this recipe on the back of a frozen ravioli bag and it was so good.  Unfortunately, I didn't take a picture but hopefully you can see it in your mind and know that you need to make this recipe ;) 

Garlic Ravioli
1 pkg. cheese ravioli
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 bunch green onions
salt & pepper
1 cup mozzarella cheese

Cook ravioli according to package directions and when draining, reserve 1/4 cup cooking liquid.  While ravioli is cooking, add enough olive oil to cover the bottom of a skillet and add the garlic, salt and pepper.  Cook just until the garlic starts to brown, then add onions and cook just until the start to soften.  Add drained ravioli and reserved liquid to pan with garlic.  Stir and let cook for a few minutes - just to let ravioli get brown, but not stick to pan.  Transfer to serving platter and top with mozzarella cheese. 

This was so simple and all three of my guys loved it!

This weekend is homecoming at the college I work for and I've been asked to be one of the judges for the festivites.  The first event is at 10:00 tonight....don't they know that I'm old and I'm usually in bed by that time?  Oh to be young again and have tons of energy! 

Racing season is coming to an end - just a few more races in October and one in November.  Carl and Ryan are racing this weekend and I'm looking forward to the day when Kyle gets his cast off and can join them.  I forgot to mention that Ryan won his fourth race this season and also won the points championship for the 65cc class.  Way to go Rocky!!

Lego SUV

I just have to share another Lego creation with you.  No, this one was not built by my son, but I'm sure that he would love to have enough Legos to do this one day.  It's a life-size Lego SUV

Here are some factoids about the Lego SUV: 
  • It took 22 master builders to complete the SUV.
  • 2,500 hours is how long assembly took.
  • It weighs over 2,600 pounds, more than half as much as the real car.
  • The builders used about 380,000 bricks.
I find it so fascinating to see all of the Lego creations that not only my son has built, but everything you find on the web, such as the Lego bedroom, the Lego hats from the 2010 Royal Ascot, plus a YouTube channel. The creativity that goes into each one of these projects is beyond anything I could think of and I'm looking forward to finding the next cool, unique, new creation and sharing it with Ryan.
