Here's the house, :) from Pottery Barn after Cmas for $5. Not very Christmasy! I knew I was going to change it to an Easter house!
The white snow became pink sugar , and the trim got painted too. Colorful paper grass and some eggs, and now it is a centerpiece! I could drill a hole in the bottom and throw in some battery operated lights. I could, but I didn't!
Pink and green plaid tablecloth, pink polka dot plates and salads with a white charger underneath.
Polka dot napkins and pink flatware. Pink soup or fruit cup bowl.
I know my friend Marigene, at In the Middle of Nowhere is saying, " Bleck," she hates PINK!
Polka dot egg pots serve a name markers.
Bunny bread and butter plate.
This cute little egg plate was a gift from a friend years ago. The bunnies are salt and pepper shakers.
I saw a recipe for Ricotta gnocchi on the food network. I have made the potato kind, so I thought I would try this.
It is much lighter than the potato, and reminded me of the insides of stuffed shells.
You put the ricotta mixture into a pastry bag and have to pipe it into the boiling water. A little tricky, piping with one hand, using a knife to cut it with the other, and man, my wrists were getting toasted!
I topped it with prosciutto. I don't think I would make it again, just saying! :)
Pre prosciutto and shaved cheese.
After you boil it quickly, you drain, then give it a little color in a skillet with some butter and garlic. They are very fragile, so be delicate!
You might like it. Dh was happy with it, I would prefer a stuffed shell! You can also add spinach.
There are lots of gnocchi recipes out there, the most common is made into a little pillow. The piping aspect sounded different, so I thought I would give it a try.
I think the pillows are much easier though, having made both!
If you would like a chance to win a copy of Michael Lee West's new book GONE WITH A HANDSOMER MAN and a 100 dollar gift certificate, please come back the 22nd and 29th for a multi blog book party with foods mentioned in the new book. I read mine the day I got it, and loved it!
ML kindly sent me a copy, and one for a follower and said the winner would also get a 100 dollar gift certificate. She is a very generous lady!
I wonder if I can enter? :)
