The weather has been fantastic. So our week with Aisling and Layla was spent visiting beaches... and since we live on an Island, there are a great many beaches to visit!
First we took them to Willow's Beach (Victoria's Palm Springs style beach with white sand). Though the water was frigid, it didn't really matter because we were there for the Oak Bay Tea Party (which may have originated as a tea party, but is more of a carnival these days). We did it all: rides, food and stayed for the air show.
Here's a recipe that everyone helped to make this week. I was a bit worried about the kids not sealing the pasta up well enough, but none of them broke open when boiling! If you can find pre-made wanton wrappers, then "homemade" ravioli is
SUPER easy. There's all sorts of filling options, but I wanted a super
quick and reasonably healthy meal.
Spoon 1 tsp of the mixture into the centre of a wonton wrapper.
I found that these stuck together if I didn't add the sauce quickly. After the pasta was tossed in sauce I was able to keep them nicely warm in the oven until I was ready to serve.
