A Thanksgiving Tradition

Thanksgiving is on Thursday! What a great holiday! It is a holiday that forces you to find something to be thankful for, you get to eat delicious food, and it is a holiday that any American can celebrate (regardless of religion, race, occupation, position in the family, etc.)

One of my favorite things about Thanksgiving is a very special family tradition: making homemade raviolis. This is a tradition on Danny’s side of the family, and I have been very blessed to be included. The recipe is from Danny’s Great-Great Grandmother, who came over from Italy. They are so fun to make! You make a flour mountain, then make it into a volcano with egg lava in the middle. You mix up the egg and add some flour to make a dough. Then we roll out the dough, add a cheese mixture, and cut out a ravioli. Of course we also get to make a huge mess!
