Spinach Ravioli

I've had a pretty nice weekend, but no pictures to show except for a food one. This morning I made spinach ravioli with won ton wrappers.
For the filling, I cooked spinach and squeezed all the water out of it, then I added ricoota cheese, a little parmesan, flax meal, cracker crumbs, salt and nutmeg. Stir it all together and drop by teaspoonful onto the wrappers. I cut each won ton into 4 small squares and using my finger I put water around the edges to help it stick. Then I used a fork to press the two layers together. Notice the one odd scalloped one? I started cutting out with a large cookie cutter but soon decided I was wasting too much and it would take forever!
They take about 2 minutes to cook in simmering water. I made a garlic, mushroom, and tomatoe sauce, but you could also do it with a pesto sauce. I have enough left over for a lunch for both my husband and I, and I froze another dinner's worth.
Yesterday, in the frigid temps and wicked wind we decided to go for a snow shoe. We stuck to the wooded trail though, where it was sheltered and it was actually really nice.
I've also been working on 2 little projects, neither of which I can show. One is for a friend's birthday and the other I plan to send for a swap. I will show the first one after my friend has gotten it on Tue.
And, by the way, I did sit and take off the brown borders from the shoofly blocks. I have cut new ones to put on in the natural cotton color.
