the one where i was successful

usually, these posts are titled epic fail: the food edition or something along those lines but i'm so glad to say it was a success!
john and i made a delicious dinner of toasted ravioli and it was so wonderful that i figured it was only right to share with you peeps!  we used this recipe and yup, it's as easy as it sounds and as delicious as it looks.
the assembly lines... ravioli (al dente), buttermilk, bread crumbs and parmesan cheese, easy to use baking sheet, and a good lookin man... heyyyy good lookin  whatchaaa got coookin, yup that just happened.


{i'd like to give a shout out to my canon rebel for catching the bread crumbs in falling action, making this one of my proudest photography moments}

here's our night. toasted ravioli, wine, funfetti cake (don't worry, we're getting there), and some basketball in the background.  livin the life i tell ya.

then ya fry it.  what? did i say it would be healthy??

swan dive into this platter of heaven?!  don't mind if i do!!

pour on some alfredo sauce and you've got yourself a lovely, romantic meal.

what? you thought i would have nothing healthy at all?  clearly there's broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots right there next to the texas toast!  sheesh, thinkin i'm depriving my love of his nutrients??  (may i please mention this is his plate and no, i did not eat two pieces of the toast and/or have this much ravioli... thanks, that's my disclaimer..plus i needed to save room for the cake)

and just to top of the strictly healthy meal, i decided it was necessary to have a nice funfetti cake. and icing.  doy!

i'm such a natural in the kitchen.  siiike.

i decided not to include pictures of j and me for the simple fact my camera lens couldn't fit both of our fat asses hot selves in the same picture.

so go treat yourself to this meal tonight and report back to me tomorrow that it was the greatest thing you've ever had!  i dare you.  did i mention it was a fraction of what we usually spend when we cook meals?  it was incredibly cheap. ...did i mention that i also got carded to buy nyquil?  c'mon now people, craziness i tell you.

there ya have it. a story of jayme & john doing something and it not being an epic fail!  look ma, i'm growing up!

In Indiana you get carded anytime you buy most cold medicine... they scan your drivers license and it goes into a database to make sure you aren't' making meth or something? You can only buy so much

fried ravioli?! I didn't even realize you could DO that!!

When you two make a comfort-food dinner you take no prisoners, huh? I had to swallow like 7 times as I was reading this from all the drool. (Sorry, TMI.) (At least my mouth was shut.)

Those falling crumbs are absolutely epic. High five, amigo!
