WEEKLY WINNERS


More participants here at Sarcastic Mom Weekly winners

I spent two days in the beautiful cottage in the Ardennes (Belgian mountains), belonging to the parents of my son's girl.



He loves to cook, it has become his hobby and so he prepared fresh Raviolis filled with spinach, ricotta (Italian cheese) and nuts as starter.



First he made the dough and put it through this little machine



some help was needed






and out came this long thin piece



with a special ring tin he made the Raviolis





stuffed them



The Raviolis are ready to be cooked



I wondered about the corks, but it is a genious idea to not burn your fingers when you lift up the cover !



and finally they were on our plates. They were delicious !



At the same time he had prepared trouts



which didn't look very happy. They were wrapped in aluminium foil together with spices, and vegetables and put in the stove.

Served with roasted potatoes with rosmarin this was the main course.

I only can recommend this restaurant !

I want to come back in that region of Belgium. We had a very pleasant stay in a little house just outside Sart, between Spa and Malmedy, and visited the Baugnez 44 Museum, very interesting.
